The selected work provides a deeper physical insight in the nonlinear optical properties of graphene, the revolutionary new material that consists of just a single layer of carbon atoms. In the framework of the GRAPHENICS research project, JinLuo, Nathalie and John theoretically showed that graphene’s nonlinear optical characteristics are not constant for a given wavelength but instead strongly depend on the material’s chemical potential. Taking into account that the chemical potential of graphene is tuneable, their findings thus show that one should be able to control the nonlinear optical properties of graphene.
