Ultrathin lens could revolutionise next-gen devices

Monday September 28 2015

Researchers at Swinburne University of Technology, collaborating with Monash University, have developed an ultrathin, flat, ultra-lightweight graphene oxide optical lens with unprecedented flexibility.

"Our lens concept has a 3D subwavelength capability that is 30 times more efficient, able to tightly focus broadband light from the visible to the near infrared, and offers a simple and low-cost manufacturing method," said lead researcher Baohua Jia, from Swinburne's Centre for Micro-Photonics.

CMP Director, Professor Min Gu, said: 'The newly demonstrated laser nano-patterning method in graphene oxides holds the key to fast processing and programming of high capacity information for big data sectors.'
