EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Graphene Technology and Applications

54 - Graphene Technology

18 October 2021

15:00 – 17:00 CEST


Graphene is a disruptive technology; one that could open up new markets and even replace existing technologies or materials. In this meeting, we will discuss the most exciting applications for graphene in the photonics field such as the development of sensors, transceivers, fast photodetectors, optical modulators,far-infrared filters, polarizers, and electromagnetic wave shields that could find applications in optical communications, infrared imaging, and national security. Moreover, the opportunities for the photonic supply
chain will be discussed.

Technology Explainer

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.
