Graphene and other two-dimensional (2D) materials provide new opportunities for emerging optoelectronic applications. Atomic thickness together with the tunable optical properties creates a unique combination for active devices ranging from visible to terahertz frequencies. Since the thickness of 2D crystals is much thinner than wavelength of light, their optical response originates from the high mobility free carriers. Unique tunable optical properties together with the recent advances of large area synthesis of graphene and other 2D crystals enabled controlling light-matter interaction for optoelectronic applications.
This symposium will cover understanding of basic optical properties of graphene and other 2D materials, preparation and patterning of optoelectronic materials as well as the complete range of optoelectronic applications including optical detectors and modulators, high frequency devices and components, reconfigurable THz/microwave devices, and hybrid quantum dot LEDs.
Interdisciplinary topics related to physics of optical properties, materials science and engineering of novel devices will be connected by invited talks in order to accelerate the development of these materials toward optoelectronic applications. The closing session will be dedicated to a comparison with related materials which should motivate a discussion toward generalized models for new enabling 2D materials for optoelectronic devices.
