The Graphene Flagship returns to the Mobile World Congress, bringing with it the next generation of mobile technologies. Step into the Graphene Pavilion and enter the fascinating world of graphene and related materials in an exhibition designed to bring these materials to life. Discover how they can be made in the large-scale in the Graphene Knowledge Centre and experience cutting-edge new technologies, with interactive demonstrations in Sensors and IoT, Wearables and Health, Datacom and Energy. RWTH Aachen University and AMO will present ultrafast graphene based photodetectors and fully flexible logic and RF circuits for future 5G and IoT applications.
Last year at Mobile World Congress 2017, the Graphene Flagship’s exhibition was named as a ‘not to be missed’ booth. This year, at the Graphene Pavilion, explore further the applications of graphene and related materials in mobile technology. Experience cameras that can see the invisible, filters that transform saltwater into drinking water, novel batteries, a wide range of flexible electronics, ultrafast data transmission systems, pressure tracking shoes and solar cells with world-class efficiency, all enabled by graphene.
“The Graphene Pavilion at the Mobile World Congress is the centrepiece of the Graphene Flagship technology and innovation development. We are proud to showcase how graphene and related materials are progressing along the roadmap to applications, with a focus on consumer electronics. The Flagship partners are open for business and ready to forge new collaborations to bring these materials to the marketplace.” said Professor Andrea Ferrari, Graphene Flagship Science and Technology Officer and Chair of its Management Panel.
Presently an overall of 120 partners out of industry and research are working together, among them RWTH Aachen University and AMO GmbH which have founded just recently the common Aachen Graphene & 2D-Materials Center. “With 25 different demonstrators, prototypes and products on display there is something for everyone at the Graphene Pavilion” stated Dr. Daniel Neumaier from AMO GmbH and leader of the flagship division 3. This largest division of the research initiative is dealing with electronic and photonic devices out of Graphene and related 2-dimensional materials. The Aachen activities are focused on the fabrication and analysis of Graphene layers as well as the realization of electrical and optoelectronic devices, e.g. in the area of data communication, sensorics as well as internet of things.
“As we start to see more diversity in the type of prototypes that are being demonstrated more and more of the technology is edging closer to the markets.” said ICREA Professor Frank Koppens from ICFO (The Institute of Photonic Sciences), Barcelona, the Scientific Chair of the Graphene Pavilion.
The Graphene Flagship is one of Europe’s largest research initiatives, aimed at taking graphene and related materials from the realm of academic laboratories to the factory floor. The Graphene Pavilion hosts 21 exhibiting partners from across Europe and is a true testament to the ground-breaking work being undertaken within the Graphene Flagship.
Within the four areas of Data Communications, Sensors and IoT, Wearables and Health, and Energy the Graphene Pavilion offers a truly immersive experience into the world of Graphene Innovation.
The 2018 Graphene Pavilion sees the introduction of the Graphene Knowledge Centre. Staffed by experts in the graphene field, it is the place to go and learn more about graphene, its structure, properties, production methods as well as its roadmap for future success.
On Wednesday 28 February there will also be a ‘Meeting Graphene’ event with talks by key industry and research leaders including a visionary keynote speech by the Nobel Prize Laureate Professor Sir Konstantin Novoselov; all illustrating the potential of graphene in the mobile ecosystem.
Visit the Graphene Pavilion in NEXTech Hall 8.0, Stand 8.0K31 at the Mobile World Congress, Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain, 26 February – 1 March.
