Tracking slow nanolight in natural hyperbolic metamaterial slabs

Measured dispersion (energy versus momentum diagram) of hyperbolic phonon polaritons in boron nitride.
15/09/2015

Researchers from the Nanooptics and the Nanodevices groups at CIC nanoGUNE (Basque Country) in collaboration with colleagues at ICFO - The Institute of Photonic Sciences (Catalunya) have imaged how light moves inside an exotic class of matter known as hyperbolic materials. They observed, for the first time, ultraslow pulse propagation and backward propagating waves in deep subwavelength-scale thick slabs of boron nitride – a natural hyperbolic material for infrared light. This work has been funded by the EC Graphene Flagship and was recently reported in Nature Photonics and highlighted as a News&Views.

The Nanodevices group participates in the 2D-INK Fet Open project

27/07/2015

The 2D-INK project, led by the Molecular and Supramolecular Materials group of POLYMAT-UPV/EHU, has been funded by the European Union with 2,962,661 €. The projects aims at developing inks of novel 2D semiconducting materials -needed for the functioning of electronic devices- for low-cost large-area fabrication processes on insulating substrates through a new methodology, which will exceed the properties of state-of-the-art graphene- and graphene oxide based inks. From these semiconductor inks it would be possible to produce the next generation of ultrathin electronic appliances (such as transistors, LEDs, and solar cells) using the same technology of the current inkjet printers.
