Abstract:

Soon after its discovery in 2004, the remarkable properties of graphene have led to numerous claims to solving many of our world’s issues in terms of energy, electronics, opto-electronics, mechanical strength, quantum engineering, superconductivity, safety, filtering, chemical detection, music, bio-integration, nano-medicine, and many more. After reviewing some these claims and their validity, I will discuss several applications of graphene in our group, including phonon engineering, nanometer microscopy in liquid cells, graphene molding and photocells.
