Optically active 2D materials could transform areas such as quantum information processing and multispectral imaging.

HANK HOGAN, CONTRIBUTING EDITOR, [email protected]

Only a few atomic layers thick, 2D materials such as graphene, the compound semiconductor germanium selenium, the transition metal dichalcogenide molybdenum ditelluride, and others could provide new photonic capabilities — better multispectral imaging and single-photon sources, for example. As a result, areas ranging from imaging to quantum information processing could benefit. Graphene is the focus of much research and development, but it’s only one out of as many as a thousand stable 2D materials. That number is far greater when considering possible combinations. ...Read full article
