Graphene-enabled Coherent Raman Microscopy for live-cell imaging and tumour diagnosis

Ultra-broadband absorption properties of graphene have enabled a wide number of possibilities in the fields of lasers and photonics. Here we'll present a patented turn-key, dual-wavelength synchronised fibre laser solution exploiting graphene as a broadband saturable absorber to be implemented in a coherent Raman microscopy platform for live cell-imaging and tissue analysis.

Such technology is being developed by Cambridge Raman Imaging (CRI) Ltd., a spin-out of the University of Cambridge and Politecnico di Milano, with the mission to bring to market innovative chemometric imaging platforms for the study of living cells and the identification of tumours and other diseases in the clinical practice. CRI's instruments will provide clinicians with a unique tool to objectively analyse tumours and effectively tailor treatments, with the ultimate goal of making personalised medicine widely accessible to all patients.

Graphene Week 2024

Supported by the European Commission, Graphene Week 2024 stands at the forefront of cutting-edge research, innovation, and technology. As Europe's leading and longest-running graphene conference, it unites over 500 international experts and students to discuss key topics concerning graphene and 2D materials. In 2024, the program welcomes over 200 speakers, an Innovation Forum, an Exhibition, and dedicated sessions on diversity, early career development, EC future opportunities, and 2D materials for the future. Join us for the 19th edition of Graphene Week 2024 in Prague, and let’s turn wonder into action!

IOP Publishing Workshop

While the 2D materials community celebrates 20 years since the isolation of graphene, IOP Publishing’s 2D Materials journal celebrates its 10-year anniversary. The journal will mark this occasion with a special contribution to the Graphene Week 2024 conference to be held in Prague, Czech Republic. Join the “Publication and peer review” workshop providing instruction for PhD students and early career researchers on how to make it as an author and a reviewer in journals. IOPP will also organise a focus issue in 2D Materials based on Graphene Week 2024 with contributions from speakers. Authors are welcome to contribute an original research paper, topical review or perspective. The focus issue will be showcased on a dedicated webpage and promoted extensively to the community.
