Electromagnetic radiation and mechanical vibrations of matter interact and exchange energy at the nanometric scale. The experimental basis to study such interactions with precision is still being established. Researchers from ICN2's Phononic and Photonic nanostructures (P2N) Group designed a silicon 1D Optomechanical crystal built up so that it allows to localize in a stable way both phonons and photons.
Unconventional magnetotransport fingerprints in the quantum Hall regime in chemically functionalized graphene
A work by the ICN2's Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience Group, led by the ICREA Research Prof Stephan Roche, describes in 2D Materials a new playground for tailoring the fundamental characteristics of the quantum Hall effect.
The Severo Ochoa Programme recognizes the excellence of the scientific contributions of the centers, their potential industrial and social impact and their potential for talent attraction.
The graphene produced by chemical vapor deposition is typically polycrystalline. Authors from the ICN2 Theoretical and Computational Nanoscience Group, led by ICREA Research professor Stephan Roche, together with from the group of Prof. Young-Hee Lee Sungkyunkwan University, review in Advanced Materials the challenges and opportunities of these structures.
