Graphene, from early hype to reality, material growth, current and potential applications

Thursday, October 15, 2015 to Friday, October 16, 2015


Infotech Oulu Doctoral Program

Lecturers: Assistant Professor Jens Eriksson and Professor Rositsa Yakimova,  Linköping University, Sweden

Date: October 15-16, 2015

Room: TS 3110
Credits: 2 ECTS points


The course will give an overview of graphene, covering the history, the Nobel prize, the reasons behind the scientific and industrial interest, as well as the state of the art in graphene research and roadmaps for graphene innovation. Comparison will be made to carbon nanotubes as well as other monolayer materials and heterostructures. The course will start with an introduction to graphene, moving from the early hype to the reality of research and innovation today, including a brief overview of current and potential applications in the near future. Graphene technology development starts with material production, whereby progress and challenges in graphene growth will be covered. The course will further cover global and European research and industrial initiatives on Graphene for the period 2013 – 2033. One of the candidates for early commercialization of graphene electronic devices is sensors, whereby a description of the state of the art in graphene gas and liquid-phase sensors will be provided.
