“Quantum Material Integrated Optoelectronics for Disruptive Technologies”

Despite the significant progress on the wafer-based optoelectronics, providing a broad optical response with a mechanically robust and optically seamless device structure remains as an outstanding challenge. This challenge mainly hinders the realization of disruptive technologies such as hyperspectral imaging and skin-integration of wearables for clinically accurate telemedicine. In this talk, I will briefly explain some novel nanomaterial-based approaches and the resulting devices that I have developed to provide solutions for image sensing, optical extraction vital signs, and manipulation of light in broad range of wavelengths. By focusing on the physics lying behind the demonstrated novel optoelectronic devices, I will show the results of my research that benefits from the intrinsic mechanical flexibility and charge carrier properties of low dimensional materials. To show the promises of my approaches, I will share information on the proof-of-concept devices and provide methodological insight into the CMOS integration and wearable use of quantum materials empowering next generation optoelectronics for hyperspectral imaging and telemedicine.

Dr. Emre Ozan Polat  is an Assistant Professor at the Mechatronics Engineering Department of Kadir Has University. He works on the quantum material integrated sensor systems and optoelectronic applications of two-dimensional materials. His PhD research (İhsan Doğramacı Bilkent University, Physics) reports the development of graphene-based optoelectronic devices that work in the visible spectrum. After PhD, he obtained several Marie Curie and EU fellowships to join University of Glasgow, (UK) and ICFO-The Institute of Photonic Sciences (Spain), where he developed humanitarian technologies using light-matter interactions. He is an author of 30+ publications, book chapters, patent applications and projects. He is awarded ”BAGEP 2021 Physics Award” of Bilim Akademisi, “Innovator of The Year” of Spanish Foundation of Science and Technology (2017), Silver Leaf Award” of IEEE (2015), and “Young Scientist Award” of European Material Research Society (E-MRS) (2014).
