The group has a leading activity on the application of Raman spectroscopy to carbon films, nanotubes and graphene. This technique is used as non-destructive characterization tool in order to probe and tune the properties of carbon-based nanostructures for technological applications.
Currently the group is exploring new 2-dimensional materials, such as graphene, dichalcogenides, and their combination in superlattices and hetero-structures in order to develop new electronic devices and photovoltaics compatible with low cost and flexible substrates. In particular, the group has a strong research activity on ink-jet printable 2D-crystal inks, which can be used to enable fabrication of flexible and low-cost devices such as sensors, photodetectors, solar cells, etc. Many of the projects in this area are industry-funded.
