The optics and applications of graphene oxide

  title={The optics and applications of graphene oxide},
  author={Xiaorui Zheng},
Civilisations, or our technologies in general, are advanced by both incremental developments, such as optimisation and miniaturisation, and quantum leaps such as the Industrial Revolution. Undoubtedly, the semiconductor industry has revolutionised almost all aspects of our technologies and daily life during the past century. Silicon, as the principal material for semiconductor devices, has not only dominated the research in material science, but also shaped the engineering counterparts in terms… Expand
