Graphene/Boron Nitride Material System Enables Light Control in Tiny Circuits with Reduced Plasmon Losses

Graphene/Boron Nitride Material System Enables Light Control in Tiny Circuits with Reduced Plasmon Losses

ICFO scientists along with other researchers have proved that boron nitride/graphene material system can hold strongly confined light and suppress Plasmon losses. Since the time graphene was discovered, it has become highly realistic to trap light in small circuits and control its flow electrically. This has been achieved by exploiting plasmons in which light and electrons move together as a single coherent wave. [More]

Graphene Strip Flying Carpets Deliver Two Anticancer Drugs Sequentially

Graphene Strip Flying Carpets Deliver Two Anticancer Drugs Sequentially

An international team of researchers has developed a drug delivery technique that utilizes graphene strips as “flying carpets” to deliver two anticancer drugs sequentially to cancer cells, with each drug targeting the distinct part of the cell where it will be most effective. The technique was found to perform better than either drug in isolation when tested in a mouse model targeting a human lung cancer tumor. [More]
