Graphene’s properties make it ideal for next-generation optoelectronics and optical communications systems. Its excellent electrical properties and broadband optical absorption are highly suited for high-performance optoelectronic devices, and it can be readily integrated with silicon photonic systems. In addition, its flexibility, robustness and environmental stability have the potential to enable completely new devices.
Graphene-based technologies are proving integral to the new generation of communications, such as 5G and the internet of things - enabling high performance optical communication systems through ultra-fast and compact optoelectronic devices. From lasers and optical switches, to wireless communication and energy harvesting, graphene will play an important role within the optoelectronics field.
