We are interested in the experimental development of novel graphene nanoelectronic devices and circuits in which the absence of a bandgap in graphene is not a critical issue. We think that graphene may be suitable for very high-frequency analogue and digital applications, which silicon CMOS cannot reach, and where tradeoffs between power consumption and speed can be made.

Our group runs the nanofabrication facility at L-NESS and has an expertise in other low-dimensional systems, such as SiGe nanostructures for applications in strain-engineering and nanomedicine.
