Graphene-based neural interface allows improved brain activity mapping

A study recently published in "Nature Communication" demonstrates that graphene-based active sensor arrays are a mature technology for large-scale application in wide frequency band neural sensing interfaces. This work was developed by researchers from various institutes and a company that are part of the EU Graphene Flagship – including the ICN2.

Defects to the rescue: Exploiting defects at Van der Waals interfaces between layered materials

A paper recently published in the journal “Science Advances” demonstrates that defects in van der Waals materials, normally detrimental for device applications, can be exploited to capture and store charge carriers and therefore be beneficial for practical applications, such as photodetectors. Dr Klaas-Jan Tielrooij, leader of the Ultrafast Dynamics in Nanoscale Systems group at the ICN2, participated in this study.
