Students young scientists from The Center for probe Microscopy and Nanotechnology attended the international conference "Graphene 2019"

Young scientists from MIET participated in the international conference "Graphene 2019" in Rome June 25-28. The conference was held in a building dated back to the XVI century, belonging to the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas. The main topics of the conference were synthesis, research on the properties and application of modern 2D materials, such as graphene, molybdenum disulfide (MoS2), hexagonal boron nitride (hBN), etc. The key trends of the year are the study of the superconducting properties of the twisted on the ‘magic angle’ double-layer graphene, scalability of gas-phase synthesis methods of the 2D materials, graphene based supersensitive terahertz detectors, as well as flexible carbon electronics.
Master students of the chair of Quantum Physics and Nanoelectronics Nekrasov Nikita and Struchkov Nikolay reported the results of graphene and graphene oxide modification by deposition of organic molecules with inkjet printing and by the local laser reduction. Modified graphene can be used for fabrication of biosensors, the novel devices for express testing of various diseases. Modified graphene is also the material of the ultrasensitive radiation detectors. The successful implementation of the photodetector by MIET scientists was demonstrated by an employee of the Center of Probe Microscopy and Nanoelectronics Emelianov Alexey. The presented optoelectronic device was created on the basis of the p-p+ junction formed in a graphene sheet using a femtosecond laser (the pulse length of such a laser is less than one trillionth of a second).
