New Graphene Imager based on Graphene-on-wafer

Project description

Graphene photodetector could improve night-vision cameras

The main objective of the EU-funded G-IMAGER project is to develop cheaper and higher-performance night-vision cameras for use in the automotive, food, plastic waste and mining industries. The imager solution will be a short-wave infrared detector, which will be a lower-cost alternative to the currently used detectors made from indium gallium arsenide. G-IMAGER’s breakthrough concept relies on coupling graphene channels to photosensitive nanocrystal materials and integrating them in a chip. Apart from the lower cost, other benefits of the G-IMAGER solution are the lack of cooling requirements, and its low noise, large dynamic range, broad spectral range and scalable pixel size. These benefits will help ensure quick market uptake of the product.
