The group has a leading activity on the application of Raman spectroscopy to carbon films, nanotubes and graphene. Currently the group is exploring new 2-Dimensional (2D) 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.
