The “Optoelectronics” workpackage aims to establish a new field of graphene photonics and optoelectronics, sustained by the convergence and co-integration of graphene-based electronic and photonic components.
Examples of this are lasers, optical switches and waveguides, optical frequency converters, amplifiers, cavities, modulators, photodetectors, nano-photonics components, metamaterials and solar cells. The unique optical properties of graphene will enable novel functionalities, currently impossible with other materials. The group envisions innovative technological applications in long-haul optical communications, inter- and intra-chip optical interconnects, wireless communications, security and surveillance applications, environmental monitoring, and energy harvesting.
