In a paper recently published in NanoLetters, ICFO
researchers Alexander Powell, Alexandros Stavrinadis, and Ignacio de Miguel, led by ICREA Professors at ICFO

In the collaborative study, recently published in Nature Materials, ICFO
researchers Renwen Yu and Professor Javier Garcia de Abajo, in collaboration with a group led by Professor Fengnian Xia at Yale University, used graphene to detect mid-infrared light efficiently at room temperature and convert it into electricity.
In addition to the ICFO
, the research involved the European Institute for Biomedical Imaging Research (Austria), the Poitecnico di Milano (Italy), the University of Birmingham (UK), public research centre IDIBAPS (Spain), and private firms Hemophotonics (Barcelona), Echo Control Medical (France), and Vermom (France).
'The problem is in the poor specificity of the current approaches, which leads to a significant number of unnecessary biopsies and surgeries,' said Turgut Durduran, the project coordinator and professor at the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO
), Barcelona, Spain.
