Researchers at Swinburne University of Technology, collaborating with Monash University, have developed an ultrathin, flat, ultra-lightweight graphene oxide optical lens with unprecedented flexibility.
The ultrathin lens enables potential applications in on-chip nanophotonics and improves the conversion process of solar cells. It also opens up new avenues in:
- non-invasive 3D biomedical imaging
- photonic chips
- aerospace photonics
- laser tweezing – the process of using lasers to trap tiny particles.
This work opens up a new high-tech application for graphene oxide and demonstrates how nanotechnology can add significant value to natural graphite.
