Flatland electronics:
Graphene and other 2D materials for high frequency applications
 
Abstract:
Since 2004 that graphene was originally isolated, it managed to attract the attention of scientists working in a large variety of fields ranging from theoretical physics, solid state experimentalists, chemists all the way to electronics engineering. In fact, it is true that graphene opened up new possibilities in research, physical understanding and applications. In the field of electronics in particular, advocates of graphene have promised faster, more efficient, flexible and cheaper electronics based on graphene. Graphene is also the first conductor with micron scale, room temperature ballistic carrier transport. This opens up an entirely new class of electronics that relies on charge ballistic transport to obtain new simplified devices with novel functionality operating at extremely high frequencies. I will focus on our activity towards mastering graphene and other 2D materials to realize electronic devices operating in the high frequency. Our approach to radio frequency (RF) applications such as carbon based radar and telecommunication systems and flexible/wearable RF electronics will be presented. Finally my work on establishing ballistic devices as a potential route to obtain THz capable electronic devices will also be discussed.
