With a budget of €1 billion, the Graphene Flagship represent a new form of joint, coordinated research on an unprecedented scale, forming Europe's biggest ever research initiative.
The Graphene Flagship is tasked with bringing together academic and industrial researchers to take graphene from the realm of academic laboratories into European society in the space of 10 years, thus generating economic growth, new jobs and new opportunities.
The core consortium consists of over 150 academic and industrial research groups in 23 countries. In addition, the project has a growing number of associated members that will be incorporated in the scientific and technological work packages from the Horizon 2020 phase (1 April 2016 – 31 March 2018).
The role of IRIS unit, together with MNF (Micro-nano Facility), is to operate in WP8 (Photonics and Optoelectronics) and WP10 (Wafer-scale System Integration) to demonstrate the feasibility of integrated arrays of THz detectors based on G-FET (Graphene Field Effect Transistors) using the plasma rectification principle. In cooperation with other partners, IRIS will design the CMOS readout circuit and the antenna interfacing with the G-FET.
