Graphene for Photonics and Optoelectronics Applications

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  - 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.
