Light controlled conductivity of graphene on photorefractive lithium niobate

Jon Gorecki

Optoelectronics Research Centre, University of Southampton

Jon Gorecki is a post graduate researcher at the Optoelectronics Research Centre, currently investigating novel doping methods for graphene and other 2D materials with a view to developing adaptive THz plasmonic platforms. Previous research includes; liquid crystal display applications, and laser based additive manufacturing of metallic components.


We demonstrate non-volatile control by light of electrical conductivity of graphene deposited on iron doped Lithium Niobate (LN). Doped LN under non-uniform illumination exhibits photorefractive behaviour with electrons... [ view full abstract ]
