Workshop: Combined Approaches to Graphene Using Raman Spectroscopy and X-ray Photoelectron      Spectroscopy (sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific)
 

Workshop 1: Graphene Chemistry & Materials (1-day duration)

The “Graphene Chemistry & Materials” workshop aims at validating the roadmap developed within the GRAPHENE FLAGSHIP Pilot initiative, in particular in the fields of graphene chemical functionalization for electronics and composites applications, by an open consultation with leading experts in the field.

A main advantage of graphene technology is that, being based on carbon, it takes advantage of the huge power and versatility of carbon-based organic chemistry, which allows a fantastic diversification of properties and functionalities at the nanoscale.

Graphene can be chemically functionalized exactly like organic molecules; on the other hand, Graphene stands as a very suitable electronic platform material giving its close chemical affinity with organic molecules, from pi-conjugated materials, to fullerene, carbon nanotubes or DNA. Graphene properties can therefore be widely enriched and diversified by using organic chemistry, through chemical doping, and molecular or atomic functionalization of its surface.

Controlled chemistry of graphene and production of hybrid materials could thus overcome current technological locks, paving the way to considerable improvements of graphene-based devices performances and enlargement of the spectrum of applications, from high frequency devices, to switches and chemical sensors.

The one-day workshop will be included as a parallel session of the Graphene 2012 Conference. A series of targeted talks given by keynotes speakers will be followed by a roundtable with invited experts.

The roundtable will be open to public, and questions on the roadmap from the audience (especially from young researchers) will be encouraged.

More details will follow.

Workshop 2: Modelling and Simulation of Graphene-based Materials and Devices(1 day duration)
   
The “Modelling and Simulation of Graphene-based Materials and Devices” workshop aims at presenting the state of the art in advanced modelling of structurally and chemically modified forms of graphene materials, together with progress in simulating graphene devices including transistors, chemical sensors, NEMS and so forth. From basic theoretical concepts to ultimate developments in first-principles calculations, an overall picture of recent achievements and research perspectives will be outline, including electronic, transport, optical and mechanical properties. A series of targeted talks given by keynotes speakers will be followed by oral contributions selected from the Graphene 2012 submissions.
 
 
Workshop 3: Synthesis and Characterization of Graphene (1 day duration)
 

The aim of the present workshop consists in presenting the synthesis and the characterization of Graphene. Several production methods (CVD,  epitaxial growth, exfoliation, …) will be overviewed, as well as the characterization of  the synthesized samples using various specific experimental techniques such as STM,  HRTEM, Raman, ARPES, … A series of targeted talks have been selected in order to  present the state of the art in this research area.

 
 
Workshop 4: Applications of Graphene-based Materials (1 day duration)
 

This workshop aims at presenting the current state of the art and the opportunities of graphene-based materials/devices and related structures for emerging technologies in the field of flexible electronics and transparent conductors, high frequency devices, digital logic, ultimate sensors and bio-related applications. Challenges in the fields of ultimate microelectronics, energy dissipation and thermal management, advanced composites for aeronautics, and large scale graphene production and device integration will be also targeted.

 
 
Workshop: Combined Approaches to Graphene Using Raman Spectroscopy and X-ray Photoelectron      Spectroscopy (sponsored by Thermo Fisher Scientific)
 
Graphene-based devices are advancing rapidly through the use of chemical modification and other processing steps. The keys to this continued advancement are analytical tools that can quickly provide qualitative and quantitative information into the effects that these processes have on the material under development.
