About this Research Topic
Two-dimensional (2D) materials with outstanding optical properties have attracted worldwide attentions on the heels of discovery of graphene. Besides the large 2D family of transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), a series of new kind of mono-elemental 2D materials, such as graphene, phosphorene, arsenene, antimonene and silicene, as well as MXenes, are recently emerging. The mono-elemental 2D materials and MXenes exhibit unique properties namely, light emitting, non-linear optics, ultrafast optics, bio-related photonics, which could find their promising applications in fields of ultrafast photonics, biophotonics, optical modulation and optical components etc.
The scope of this Research Topic covers all aspects of experimental research related to 2D materials beyond graphene for photonics and optoelectronics. Specific areas of interest in 2D materials include, but not limited to:
- Ultrafast Lasers
- Nonlinear optics and ultrafast optics
- Light-emitting diodes
- Optical Photodetectors, modulators and photovoltaic devices
- Flexible optics/optoelectronic devices
- Microwave, millimeter-wave, and terahertz devices
- Communications, imaging, and sensing based on 2D noncarbon materials
Keywords: saturable absorbers and ultrafast lasers, photodetectors, photovoltaic devices, flexible smart windows and bistable displays, light-emitting devices
