Project Description

Graphene based Photonics Devices for Remote Sensing Applications

Fabrication of large area monolayer and multi-layer graphene samples of optical quality for mode locking process. Develop toolsets to realize the laser ranging instrument. Using graphene as a mean to generate mode locked laser pulses. Demonstrate mode locking process using graphene as saturable absorber.

Develop scalable graphene-based bolometer technology. Use low pressure chemical vapor deposition (LPCVD) technique to grow large area graphene. Develop a process to make saturable absorber with single layer, as well as multilayer graphene. Test and characterize graphene samples with in-house developed laser transmitter.
