MackGraphe’s research and interaction with the productive sector are focused in three strategic areas of interest:

Photonics

Within which we seek

  • To integrate graphene into optical and plasmonic integrated waveguides
  • To develop 2D materials-based optical modulators and photodetectors for next generation optical communications systems
  • To model, simulate and characterize the electronic and photonic properties of graphene and other 2D materials

Energy

Within which we seek

  • To synthesize and modify graphene and other 2D materials
  • To develop light, flexible and portable devices
  • To develop batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cells

Composites

Within which we seek to develop

  • High-performance materials for the automotive, aeronautic, and sports industries
  • Anticorrosion/conductive inks and coatings
  • Biocompatible and bioselective materials
  • Smart packaging, textiles and membranes
