Doctoral candidate publishes on graphene's potential with NSF support
Date:11/18/2010

Milan's next article, yet to be published, is "Quantum Inductance and High Frequency Oscillators in Graphene Nanoribbons." The paper proposes a novel technique for measuring the speed of ultra-high frequency transistors. Currently it is very difficult to measure ultra-high-frequency signals above 40 GHz by purely electronic means. However, Milan's research indicates that graphene nanoribbons can serve as all-electronic ultra-high frequency oscillators and filters, which would extend the possibilities of high-frequency electronics into new realms.

Since graphene planes were first isolated, much research has focused on the material's applications in nanoelectronics, due to its high electrical conductivity. But researchers at Stevens have taken a different approach, pioneering applications of this unique material in optics. Milan's research represents a fine example of this innovative thinking.

As he works with a material whose greatest applications may still be unrealized, Milan says he enjoys the level of creativity he is afforded in exploring graphene's possibilities. "I like working with Professor Strauf, because of the freedom he gives me to choose my own research projects," Milan says. "He allows me to explore things I find interesting, rather than asking me to work on a pre-defined research objective."

"Given that the our team just started two years ago to work with graphene in a collaboration with Professor Yang's group from the Mechanical Engineering Department, Milan's research success is quite remarkable," says Dr. Stefan Strauf, Assistant Professor of Physics and Engineering Physics (PEP) and Director of the Nanophotonics lab. "Milan is one of these unique graduate students you would like to clone into a dozen in your lab in order to implement all of his ideas."

The exploration of ideas has also led to the creation of a system that utilizes graphene's unique reaction to light. Working with Stevens faculty Dr. Stefan S
