Fabrication and investigation of optoelectronic properties of graphene-1D nanostructure hybrid films

Due to low electron-phonon scattering, graphene has excellent transport properties with high charge carrier mobilities. In addition, single layer graphene absorbs about 2.3% of visible light. The comb… Read more

Single Emitters for Quantum technologies

By combining advanced photonic materials with single organic molecules, we seek for novel light-matter interfaces for quantum technologies, where strong non-linearities are often needed.
