Graphene: 2D & 3D devices

International Seminars of Frontiers in Materials Science UPM-CIE Moncloa


Title: Graphene: 2D & 3D devices

Date: Monday 13th of May at 09:30

Place: E.T.S. Civil Engineering, basement 1

Speaker: Javier Martínez Rodrigo

Free admission


Carbon nanomaterials are major keystones of modern nanoscience, starting from fullerenes discovered in 1985, through carbon nanotubes (1991), and ending at the recent discovery from 2004 -graphene, a two dimensional honeycomb lattice of carbon atoms.

The field of graphene-related research has grown at a spectacular pace since single-layer flakes were first isolated. What began as an exciting material for fundamental physics has now become the focus of efforts by scientists in a wide range of disciplines.

There has been an explosion of ideas that suggest graphene for virtually every feasible use. Despite the optimism about grapheme based electronics: "graphenium” microprocessors are unlikely to appear for the next 20 years. In the meantime, one can certainly hope for many other graphene-based applications to come of age. In this respect, this seminar will present several 2D and 3D devices fabricated at the ISOM.
