Invited perspective article on graphene nonlinear optics by B-PHOT researcher Nathalie Vermeulen
Graphene, a two-dimensional crystal made of carbon only, features highly unusual optical properties which have been extensively investigated over the past decade. Within B-PHOT we are mostly interested in the nonlinear optical characteristics of graphene, including both absorptive and refractive effects. Upon invitation by APL Photonics, prof. Nathalie Vermeulen presents her view on this research field in an Invited Perspective article entitled "Perspectives on nonlinear optics of graphene: Opportunities and challenges." The article, published on the 1st of February, has meanwhile been selected by the journal's editors as "Featured Article" with prominent appearance on the journal's front page.
