Microwave plasma synthesis of graphene and its laser-optical in situ characterization

  • Gas-phase synthesis of graphene by microwave plasma treatment
  • Developing the spectroscopic and heat-transfer models of laser-heated graphene
  • Implementing in-situ laser-optical diagnostics (Laser-Induced Incandescence, Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy, Laser Extinction) to investigate graphene formation process
  • Evaluation of electrocatalytic properties of synthesized graphene and its performance in batteries
