Nanoscale Emerging Investigators 2021 collection with invited contribution from ICN2 Junior Group Leader Klaas-Jan Tielrooij
The journal Nanoscale is currently presenting its themed issue Emerging Investigators 2021 “highlighting 2021’s rising stars of nanoscience and nanotechnology research. This issue gathers the very best work from researchers in the early stages of their independent career. Each contributor was recommended by experts in their fields for carrying out work with the potential to influence future directions in nanoscience and nanotechnology.”
One of the articles in the themed collection is a contribution from ICN2 Junior Group Leader Klaas-Jan Tielrooij, with a review article on “Hot Carriers in Graphene – Fundamentals and Applications”. The review is written together with three colleagues from Canada, the UK, and Germany. Hot carriers in graphene exhibit fascinating physical phenomena and offer great promise for exciting optoelectronic and photonic applications. In particular, hot-carrier-enabled processes that give rise to the emission, conversion, and detection of light can have a disruptive impact, for example in the field of data communication, high-frequency electronics, and industrial quality control. The review describes the current status of the field, and is aimed at a broad audience, including prospective students as well as scientists, engineers and technologists from both academia and industry.
