Transparent graphene photodetectors make advanced 3D cameraPhysics World covers the work done by a team led by professors Zhaohui Zhong, Jeffrey Fessler, and Theodore Norris where they developed a new 3D camera that enables safer autonomy and advanced biomedical imaging.
A 3D camera for safer autonomy and advanced biomedical imaging
Researchers demonstrated the use of stacked, transparent graphene photodetectors combined with image processing algorithms to produce 3D images and range detection.
A better 3D camera with clear, graphene light detectors
While 3D films are currently made using multiple cameras to reconstruct each frame, this new type of camera could record in 3D on its own.
2014 Promotions of our faculty – congratulations!
Congratulations to Profs Bertacco, Flinn, Narayanasamy, Olson, Rais-Zadeh, and Zhong.
Paradigm shifting research advances in sensor technology
Girish’s research has resulted in a new paradigm in sensor technology that promises both high-speed and highly-sensitive detection.
New tech could lead to night vision contact lenses
The detector developed by University of Michigan engineering researchers doesn’t need bulky cooling equipment to work.
Zhaohui Zhong receives CAREER Award for research in graphene-based optoelectronics
The use of graphene-based hot carrier optoelectronics is the key novelty of Prof. Zhong’s research.
Seunghyun Lee takes the gold for all-graphene flexible and transparent circuit
Lee believes that graphene will play a pivotal role in realizing high speed, mechanically compliant, and transparent electronic systems in the future.
Combining flexible, transparent electronics with high speed communications for the first time
Prof. Zhaohui Zhong and his team of graduate students have built the first flexible, transparent digital modulator for high speed communications.
