Advanced 2D-material integrated photonics technologies for bio sensing

Project description

Photonics devices harness the exotic properties of 2D materials for biosensing

We typically think of a material's properties in relation to its chemical composition – for example, metals as conductors due to free electrons – but the size and structure of the material plays a unique and magical role. Materials on the nanoscale behave quite differently than they do in bulk form. The experimental demonstration of graphene as a single layer of carbon atoms arranged in a 2D lattice is an excellent example of a material whose exotic properties emerge from its nanoscopic 2D organisation. Research into 2D materials is flourishing. The EU-funded NanoIP-BioS project is taking it to new heights with a study of some of the most cutting-edge 2D materials and their integration with photonics technologies in new devices for biosensing.
