Opto-electronics with graphene and 2d material heterostructures – Presented by Frank Koppens, ICFO at the 19th edition European Conference on Integrated Optics, which takes place on 3 – 5 April 2017 at Eindhoven University of Technology, Blauwe Zaal in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
The control of polaritons are at the heart of nano-photonics and opto-electronics. Two-dimensional materials have emerged as a toolbox for in-situ control of a wide range of polaritons: plasmons, excitons and phonons. By stacking these materials on top of each other, heterostructures of these materials can be controlled at atomic scale, with extremely high quality and clean interfaces. In this talk, we will show several examples of 2d material heterostructure devices with novel ways of exciting, controlling and detecting polaritons. We also show various types of ultra-fast and highly efficient photodetectors and modulators for data communications applications.
