Quantum materials enable next-generation photonics for mobile networks in the terahertz regime

A paper recently published in 'Light: Science & Applications’ demonstrates that quantum materials of the topological insulator family can efficiently upconvert electromagnetic radiation in the terahertz (THz) regime. These results open new avenues for THz photonics technology and its application in sensing, homeland security and sixth-generation mobile communications. The study was conducted by a team of researchers coordinated by ICN2 group leader Dr Klaas-Jan Tielrooij.

ICN2 awarded for the third time with the Severo Ochoa Centre of Excellence recognition

The renewed award boosts the institutional efforts to develop excellent research and management, to consolidate new lines of work and to reinforce technology transfer strategies. With the overarching theme of “Nanosolutions for a Sustainable Society”, the new ICN2 Severo Ochora programme focuses on a series of Enabling Research Areas and three Applications Domains: Medicine, Energy-Efficient Information Processing, and Sustainable Energy Technologies.
