Thinnest of Materials Loom Large

Photonics Spectra
May 2018
Optically active 2D materials could transform areas such as quantum information processing and multispectral imaging.


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
