Abstract: Graphene holds promise for many applications due to its outstanding properties, including high electrical conductivity, optical transparency, flexibility, and strength. Of particular importance is graphene’s potential to replace currently used transparent electrode materials like indium tin oxide and silver nanowires with a stronger, cheaper, more flexible, and better-performing material. This talk will describe a new method we recently developed for engineering glass-graphene interfaces, and our progress toward developing high-performance transparent graphene electrodes using this method.

Bio:Matthew Eisaman is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering at Stony Brook University with affiliate appointments in the Stony Brook Physics Department and Brookhaven National Laboratory. His research focuses on optoelectronic applications of nanoscale engineering, exploring questions ranging from fundamental structure-function relationships to ultimate scalability. From 2011-2014, Prof. Eisaman was a Physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory, and from 2008-2011, he was an Applied Physicist in the Cleantech Innovation Program at Xerox PARC in Palo Alto, CA. He received an A.B. in physics (magna cum laude) from Princeton University in 2000, a Ph.D. in physics from Harvard University in 2006, and was a National Research Council Postdoc at the National Institute of Standards and Technology from 2006 to 2008. He holds seven patents, has coauthored 27 peer-reviewed papers with over 2500 citations, and in 2015 was named one of Long Island’s Innovators of the Year for his work on nanotextured antireflection surface coatings.
