The Graphene Flagship spotlight series tells the stories behind the research. Emre Ozan Polat is a postdoctoral researcher at ICFO (The Institute of Photonic Sciences, Spain) and is part of the team that created a graphene-quantum dots health-tracking medical patch.
The Graphene Flagship's international workshops aim to promote stong global links in graphene research. The third US-EU workshop will take place 23-25 October.
Using CMOS-compatible techniques, Flagship researchers from AMO have created photodetectors with a record-breaking bandwidth of >76 GHz, ideal for fast data communications.
