Sub-nanometer quantum engineering of 2D materials for optoelectronic devices

Project description

Cutting down on dimensions to upscale high-performing optoelectronic devices

Optoelectronic devices are at the core of today’s information revolution, bridging digital electronics and optical fibre communications. As the global internet traffic increases with a higher rate than the capacities of optical networks, new miniaturised optoelectronic technologies integrated on silicon could prove to be a powerful solution. The EU-funded SubNanoOptoDevices project plans to develop a new technology for optoelectronic components based on low-dimensional materials to achieve increased data rates and reduced power consumption. It will explore a radically new way to engineer the electrical and optical properties of these materials (specifically 2D materials and van der Waals heterostructures) to achieve, for instance, optical modulators with tunable wavelengths and unprecedented modulation speeds.
