Gladiator is a partnering project of the Graphene Flagship, one of the Flagship Future and Emerging Technology Research Initiatives (FET Flagships).
In the image above one of the demonstrators on display at MEDICA, from Graphene Flagship partner Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ICN2), will be a retinal implant which can serve as optical prostheses for people who have lost their sight.
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.

Natural spider silk has excellent mechanical properties. Researchers from the Graphene Flagship have found a way to boost the strength of spider’s silk using graphene-based materials, paving the way for a novel class of high-performance bionic composites.
Printable graphene inks enable ultrafast lasers in the terahertz range.
The first EU-China workshop, held in Beijing 29 June - 2 July 2017, provided an opportunity for researchers from Europe and China to communicate recent developments and setup future collaborations on graphene and related materials.
The second EU-Japan meeting, held in Barcelona during 6-8 May 2017, was an opportunity for graphene researchers from Europe and Japan to meet and discuss shared research questions and explore collaboration opportunities.
