Description

This first book on emerging applications for this innovative material gives an up-to-date account of the many opportunities graphene offers high-end optoelectronics. The text focuses on potential as well as already realized applications, discussing metallic and passive components, such as transparent conductors and smart windows, as well as high-frequency devices, spintronics, photonics, and terahertz devices. Also included are sections on the fundamental properties, synthesis, and characterization of graphene.

With its unique coverage, this book will be welcomed by materials scientists, solid-state chemists and solid-state physicists alike.

Author Information

A.Rashid bin Mohd Yusoff is Assistant Research Professor at Kyung Hee University since 2012. He received his BA in physics from the University Putra Malaysia and his MS in applied physics from the University Malaya. For his PhD studies he went on to Brazil, where he graduated at the University of Parana in 2011. Afterwards, he joined the Department of Information Display at the Kyung Hee University as a post-doctoral fellow studying organic photovoltaics (OPV) and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). In 2012, he became group leader for the development of a high efficiency OPV joint program between South Korea and Japan and he was appointed group leader for OLED R&D activities for DNA active matrix OLEDs (AMOLEDs) between Kyung Hee University and the University of Cincinnati (duration 2012-2015). His research interests include electronic properties of organic semiconductor thin films, charge transport properties, device physics, organic and inorganic-based light emitting devices, organic photovoltaics, and organic transistors.
