Thresholdless Soliton Formation in Photonic Moiré Lattices

Posted By Graphene Council, Wednesday, September 2, 2020
Researchers at The Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO), a BIST centre, are part of a collaboration that has reported, in Nature Photonics, the observation of soliton formation with a power threshold dictated by geometry in photonic moiré lattices.

Take two identical layers of semi transparent material that have the same structure, put them one on top of the other, rotate them and look at them from above, and hexagonal patterns start to emerge. They are known as moiré patterns or moiré lattices.

Moiré lattices are used every day in applications such as art, textile industry, architecture, as well as image processing, metrology and interferometry. They have been a matter of major interest in science, since they are easily produced using coupled graphene–hexagonal boron nitride monolayers, graphene–graphene layers and graphene quasicrystals on a silicon carbide surface and have proven to generate different states of matter upon rotating or twisting the layers to a certain angle, opening to a new realm of richer physics to be investigated. A few years ago scientists at MIT let by Prof. Pablo Jarillo-Herrero found a new type of unconventional superconductivity in twisted bilayer graphene that forms a moiré lattice. Since then, an explosion of new physics has occurred, which includes several landmark contributions by the ICFO team led by Prof. Efetov that unveiled a new zoo of unobserved states in such structures.

In a different realm of Physics, a team of scientists in a long-standing collaboration between ICFO researchers Prof. Yaroslav Kartashov and Prof. Lluis Torner, the former having been post-doctoral researcher in the same group as Prof Fangwei Ye (currently full professor at the Shanghai Jiao Tong University, where the experiments were conducted), and Prof. Vladimir Konotop in Lisbon, reported early this year in Nature the observation of the transition from delocalisation to localisation in two-dimensional patterns, afforded by the properties of the moiré structures with fundamentally different geometries (periodic, general aperiodic, and quasicrystal).

Now moiré lattices optically-induced in a photorefractive nonlinear crystal have been employed to observe the formation of optical solitons under different geometrical conditions controlled by the twisting angle between the constitutive sublattices. The behavior of the soliton formation threshold was confirmed to be directly linked to the band structure of the moiré lattices resulting from the different twisting angles of the sublattices and, in particular, of the band-flattening associated to the geometry of the lattices. Similar phenomena are anticipated to occur in moiré patterns composed of sublattices of other crystallographic symmetries and in other physical systems where flat-bands induced by geometry arise. The results were published in Nature Photonics.

Graphene additives show a new way to control the structure of organic crystals

Posted By Graphene Council, Wednesday, September 2, 2020
A team of researchers at The University of Manchester has demonstrated that the surface properties of graphene can be used to control the structure of organic crystals obtained from solution.

Organic crystal structures can be found in a large number of products, such as food, explosives, colour pigments and pharmaceuticals. However, organic crystals can come in different structures, called polymorphs: each of these forms has very different physical and chemical properties, despite having the same chemical composition.

To make a comparison, diamond and graphite are polymorphs because they are composed both by carbon atoms, but they have very different properties because the atoms are bonded to form different structures. The same concept can be extended to organic molecules, when interacting between each other to form crystals.

Understanding and reacting to how materials work on a molecular level is key because the wrong polymorph can cause a food to have a bad taste, or a drug to be less effective. There are several examples of drugs removed from the market because of polymorphism-related problems. As such, production of a specific polymorph is currently a fundamental problem for both research and industry and it does involve substantial scientific and economic challenges.

New research from The University of Manchester has now demonstrated that adding graphene to an evaporating solution containing organic molecules can substantially improve the selectivity towards a certain crystalline form. This opens up new applications of graphene in the field of crystal engineering, which have been completely unexplored so far.

Professor Cinzia Casiraghi, who led the team, said: “Ultimately, we have shown that advanced materials, such as graphene and the tools of nanotechnology enable us to study crystallisation of organic molecules from a solution in a radically new way. We are now excited to move towards molecules that are commonly used for pharmaceuticals and food to further investigate the potential of graphene in the field of crystal engineering."

In the report, published in ACS Nano, the team has shown that by tuning the surface properties of graphene, it is possible to change the type of polymorphs produced. Glycine, the simplest amino acid, has been used as reference molecule, while different types of graphene have been used either as additive or as templates.

Matthew Boyes, and Adriana Alieva, PhD students at The University of Manchester, both contributed to this work: “This is a pioneering work on the use of graphene as an additive in crystallisation experiments. We have used different types of graphene with varying oxygen content and looked at their effects on the crystal outcome of glycine. We have observed that by carefully tuning the oxygen content of graphene, it is possible to induce preferential crystallisation.” said Adriana.

Computer modelling, performed by Professor Melle Franco at the University of Aveiro, Portugal, supports the experimental results and attributes the polymorph selectivity to the presence of hydroxyl groups allowing for hydrogen bonding interactions with the glycine molecules, thereby favouring one polymorph over the other, once additional layers of the polymorph are added during crystal growth.

This work has been financially supported by the European Commission in the framework of the European Research Council (ERC Consolidator), which supports the most innovative research ideas in Europe, by placing emphasis on the quality of the idea rather than the research area, and it is a joint collaboration between the Department of Chemistry and the Department of Chemical Engineering, with Dr Thomas Vetter.

Team’s Flexible Micro LEDs May Reshape Future of Wearable Technology

Posted By Graphene Council, Monday, August 31, 2020
University of Texas at Dallas researchers and their international colleagues have developed a method to create micro LEDs that can be folded, twisted, cut and stuck to different surfaces.

The research, published online in June in the journal Science Advances, helps pave the way for the next generation of flexible, wearable technology.

Used in products ranging from brake lights to billboards, LEDs are ideal components for backlighting and displays in electronic devices because they are lightweight, thin, energy efficient and visible in different types of lighting. Micro LEDs, which can be as small as 2 micrometers and bundled to be any size, provide higher resolution than other LEDs. Their size makes them a good fit for small devices such as smart watches, but they can be bundled to work in flat-screen TVs and other larger displays. LEDs of all sizes, however, are brittle and typically can only be used on flat surfaces.

The researchers’ new micro LEDs aim to fill a demand for bendable, wearable electronics.

“The biggest benefit of this research is that we have created a detachable LED that can be attached to almost anything,” said Dr. Moon Kim, Louis Beecherl Jr. Distinguished Professor of materials science and engineering at UT Dallas and a corresponding author of the study. “You can transfer it onto your clothing or even rubber — that was the main idea. It can survive even if you wrinkle it. If you cut it, you can use half of the LED.”

Researchers in the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science and the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics helped develop the flexible LED through a technique called remote epitaxy, which involves growing a thin layer of LED crystals on the surface of a sapphire crystal wafer, or substrate.

Typically, the LED would remain on the wafer. To make it detachable, researchers added a nonstick layer to the substrate, which acts similarly to the way parchment paper protects a baking sheet and allows for the easy removal of cookies, for instance. The added layer, made of a one-atom-thick sheet of carbon called graphene, prevents the new layer of LED crystals from sticking to the wafer.

“The graphene does not form chemical bonds with the LED material, so it adds a layer that allows us to peel the LEDs from the wafer and stick them to any surface,” said Kim, who oversaw the physical analysis of the LEDs using an atomic resolution scanning/transmission electron microscope at UT Dallas’ Nano Characterization Facility.

Colleagues in South Korea carried out laboratory tests of LEDs by adhering them to curved surfaces, as well as to materials that were subsequently twisted, bent and crumpled. In another demonstration, they adhered an LED to the legs of a Lego minifigure with different leg positions.

Bending and cutting do not affect the quality or electronic properties of the LED, Kim said.

The bendy LEDs have a variety of possible uses, including flexible lighting, clothing and wearable biomedical devices. From a manufacturing perspective, the fabrication technique offers another advantage: Because the LED can be removed without breaking the underlying wafer substrate, the wafer can be used repeatedly.

“You can use one substrate many times, and it will have the same functionality,” Kim said.

In ongoing studies, the researchers also are applying the fabrication technique to other types of materials.

“It’s very exciting; this method is not limited to one type of material,” Kim said. “It’s open to all kinds of materials.”

Other UT Dallas researchers involved in the study included Dr. Anvar Zakhidov, professor of physics; and Qingxiao Wang and Sunah Kwon, doctoral students and research assistants in materials science and engineering.

Other authors of the study were affiliated with Los Alamos National Laboratory, as well as organizations in South Korea, including Sejong University, Ewha Womans University, Korea Electronics Technology Institute, CoAsia Corp., Pohang University of Science and Technology, and Korea University. The research was funded in part by the National Research Foundation of Korea, the Korea Institute for Advanced Technology and the U.S. Department of Energy.

An improved wearable, stretchable gas sensor using nanocomposites

Posted By Graphene Council, Friday, August 28, 2020
A stretchable, wearable gas sensor for environmental sensing has been developed and tested by researchers at Penn State, Northeastern University and five universities in China.

The sensor combines a newly developed laser-induced graphene foam material with a unique form of molybdenum disulfide and reduced-graphene oxide nanocomposites. The researchers were interested in seeing how different morphologies, or shapes, of the gas-sensitive nanocomposites affect the sensitivity of the material to detecting nitrogen dioxide molecules at very low concentration. To change the morphology, they packed a container with very finely ground salt crystals.

Nitrogen dioxide is a noxious gas emitted by vehicles that can irritate the lungs at low concentrations and lead to disease and death at high concentrations.

When the researchers added molybdenum disulfide and reduced graphene oxide precursors to the canister, the nanocomposites formed structures in the small spaces between the salt crystals. They tried this with a variety of different salt sizes and tested the sensitivity on conventional interdigitated electrodes, as well as the newly developed laser-induced graphene platform. When the salt was removed by dissolving in water, the researchers determined that the smallest salt crystals enabled the most sensitive sensor.

“We have done the testing to 1 part per million and lower concentrations, which could be 10 times better than conventional design,” says Huanyu Larry Cheng, assistant professor of engineering science and mechanics and materials science and engineering. “This is a rather modest complexity compared to the best conventional technology which requires high-resolution lithography in a cleanroom.”

Ning Yi and Han Li, doctoral students at Penn State and co-authors on the paper in Materials Today Physics, added, “The paper investigated the sensing performance of the reduced graphene oxide/moly disulfide composite. More importantly, we find a way to enhance the sensitivity and signal-to-noise ratio of the gas sensor by controlling the morphology of the composite material and the configuration of the sensor-testing platform. We think the stretchable nitrogen dioxide gas sensor may find applications in real-time environmental monitoring or the healthcare industry.”

Other Penn State authors on the paper, titled “Stretchable, Ultrasensitive, and Low-Temperature NO2 Sensors Based on MoS2@rGO Nanocomposites,” are Li Yang, Jia Zhu, Xiaoqi Zheng and Zhendong Liu.

Magic Material Made with a Twist

Posted By Graphene Council, Friday, August 28, 2020

The discovery of graphene – a material made of a single layer of carbon atoms – 15 years ago was the first step in what has become an ongoing revolution. Using such two-dimensional layers of carbon or other compounds, materials can now be precisely engineered for particular properties in ways that had not previously been possible. Around two years ago, scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) added yet another twist – literally. They created a material made of two layers of graphene in which the top layer was slightly askew – twisted at a “magic angle” of a tad over one degree. A single layer of graphene generally behaves as a semimetal, but the magic twist turns the two graphene layers into a superconductor, in which electrons can carry electric current with no loss of energy. This superconductor somewhat resembles a completely different group of materials – so-called high-temperature superconductors – that have subject of intense research for decades but are still not fully understood.

Researchers at the Weizmann Institute of Science recently teamed up with the magic-angle group at MIT to uncover the physics of this interesting twist. Along the way, they identified a new kind of disorder – a discovery that could advance the emerging field of “twistronics.” 

PhD student Aviram Uri and Dr. Sameer Grover, who led the research in the group of Prof. Eli Zeldov of the Weizmann’s Condensed Matter Physics Department, together with Yuan Cao and colleagues from the group of Prof. Pablo Jarillo-Herrero at MIT, measured the flow of electrons in magic-angle graphene using the scanning SQUID-on-tip microscope developed in Zeldov’s lab. An ultra-sensitive magnetometer with nanoscale resolution, the SQUID-on-tip is perfect for this purpose, explains Aviram. It visualizes, in great detail, what happens on the level of a single atomic, super-lattice period that is induced by the two rotated layers. The double layers of graphene-with-a-twist devices were prepared for the experiment at MIT and sent to Zeldov’s lab.

The first thing the researchers noted in their measurements was that the electrons followed “preferred” narrow paths through the material. These paths resembled quantum “edge states” that Zeldov and his team had identified in their previous experiments in graphene; but as opposed to those experiments, where the edge states were actually on the edges, here they were running right through the middle. How and why did these strange edge states form?

The solution to this puzzle, says Zeldov, is that these currents still flow along edges, but in this case the edges are the boundaries of patches within the material, each made up of different twist angles. The researchers found that even if one aims for a specific twist-angle when fabricating the device, there will be random strains and stresses so that the twist angle varies throughout -- creating a complex structure rather than a uniform one. By tracing the exact positions of the edge states, the researchers were in fact able to construct spatial maps of the local twist angle with unprecedented resolution and accuracy. These new maps revealed an intricate landscape consisting of valleys, peaks and saddle points, and a network of sharp jumps.

“Close to the magic angle, the electronic properties of the material depend strongly on the exact twist angle. That means that regions with different twist angles should really be thought of as different materials that are somehow attached together,” explains Aviram. This new perspective has far reaching implications. The researchers in Zeldov’s group showed that gradients in the twist angle lead to the formation of strong internal electric fields that do not behave as would be expected, given the metallic nature of the material. Moreover, these fields can be tuned and amplified significantly simply by changing the density of the electrons. Unlike the electric fields produced by the more familiar “charge disorder,” these electric fields reflect a fundamentally new type of disorder – “twist-angle disorder” – a phenomenon that affects the very properties of its electrons, causing them to alter their mass as they traverse the different regions of the material.

Qantum Hall edge states surprisingly appear in the bulk of magic angle graphene rather than along the edges of the device (black outline). Each edge state consists of a pair of red and blue colors indicating counterpropagating persistent currents. A scanning nanoSQUID-on-tip was used to directly image the currents through their magnetic field imprint.

The nature of this new kind of disorder gave the researchers some clues as to how edge states form in the interior of the sample. “You can think of the twisted material as a series of egg cartons with different periodicities placed side by side,” says Aviram. “The edge states run in the narrow areas that separate those ‘cartons’ – this is where intense in-plane electric fields exist, pointing from one egg carton to the next.”

Epitaxial Graphene-Based Biosensor Provides Rapid Detection of COVID-19

Posted By Graphene Council, Thursday, August 27, 2020
Assistant Professor Kevin Daniels (ECE/IREAP) and his colleagues, have developed an epitaxial graphene based biosensor that provides rapid detection of COVID-19. 

The biosensor, created by Daniels, Dr. Soaram Kim of the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP), Dr. Heeju Ryu of the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Dr. Seo Hyun Kim of the University of Georgia, and Dr. Rachael Myers-Ward of the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, tested COVID spike protein ranging from one attogram to one microgram, and can detect COVID spike protein in a few seconds, reuse sensors by simply rinsing in sodium chloride (NaCl), and attain results without sending it off to a lab, unlike the current real-time reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test. Although It is the fastest, most reliable and universally used method for diagnosis, RT-PCR requires a ribonucleic acid (RNA) preparation step, causing a decrease in accuracy as well as sensitivity. In addition, it takes over three hours to complete the current diagnosis for COVID-19. 

The researchers use epitaxial graphene, a single to a few layers of carbon atoms with incredibly high surface area, high electronic conductivity and carrier mobility resulting in ultimate sensitivity for biological sensors. SARS-CoV-2 spike protein antibody & antigen allows high selectivity and an experimental environment that is not dangerous. Therefore the antibody/graphene heterostructure can synergistically improve sensitivity and provide ultra-fast detection.

“These graphene-based sensors are not only much faster than PCR and Rapid test for detecting COVID, but are orders of magnitude more sensitive with the possibility of detecting the virus sooner post-exposure," says Daniels. "The ability to rapidly detect the virus in individuals, even those who were exposed too recently to be detected by other means, is the goal.”
