ICFO is setting a rapid pace in the advancement of Graphene and 2D materials research
In this type of emerging translational nanotechnology, discoveries in academic laboratories are rapidly transferred to applications and commercial products.
Graphene and related materials have the potential to make a profound impact on society as a whole in the short and long term.
Researchers have studied how light can be used to “see” the quantum nature of an electronic material. They managed to do that by capturing light in a net of carbon atoms and slowing down light it down so that it moves almost as slow as the electrons in the graphene. Then something special happens: electrons and light start to move…
