Researchers at Swinburne University develop new ultrathin lens

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
  • micromachines
  • 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.
