Graphene, a single layer carbon atoms arranged in honeycomb lattice , has been the most attractive material over the past decade. Its unique mechanical and electronic properties have lead to the discovery of new physics and many promising applications. For instance, research on light matter interaction in graphene-based heterojunctions has revealed a new route to design photoactive devices. In this talk, I will present my work on graphene synthesis and graphene-semiconductor heterojunctions, especially their application for optoelectronic devices.
