Polarizers and Absorbers Based on 2D Materials
Traditional materials for ultra-thin polarizers are difficult to use due to the engineering involved in the manufacturing process, resulting in poor extinction ratios and poor performance. Two-dimensional (2D) materials, an emerging family of ultrathin materials, exhibit diverse optical, electronic, and magnetic properties, such as flexible band design, anisotropic optical properties, spin-valley coupled physics, and multi-field tunable optics launch, which makes them ideal candidates for exploring new scientific questions and exploring potential device applications.
2D materials have great advantages in overcoming the material limitations of thin polarizers and absorbers, providing new ideas for the development of integrated photonic circuits. Alfa Chemistry can provide unique 2D material solutions that meet customer needs. Contact us today so we can help you with your polarizer and absorber application research.
Polarized Optical Properties of 2D Materials
In polarization device applications, two-dimensional (2D) materials, such as anisotropic materials, valley electronic materials, and other hybrid heterostructures, exhibit a variety of physical and electrical features. The fast development of 2D materials has extended and focused research interests in 2D science, particularly on polarization-related optical characteristics and devices. In polarization device applications, 2D materials such as anisotropic materials, valley electron materials, and other hybrid heterostructures exhibit a wide spectrum of physical and electrical features.
Alfa Chemistry, a 2D materials specialist, can provide you with a wide range of 2D materials and assist you in the study of their polarization-related optical properties. This aids in the discovery of the intrinsic physical features of intense light-matter interactions and the development of smart optoelectronic devices in nanotechnology.

We classify polarization-related 2D materials into three categories, including anisotropic 2D materials, 2D Dirac materials with unequal valleys, and nanophotonic structured coupling materials.
Perfect Absorber Solution for 2D Materials
Most 2D materials have low light absorption efficiency in the visible and near-infrared regions, resulting in weak light-matter interactions that limit their further applications in optoelectronic devices. Alfa Chemistry can help enhance the light-matter interactions of various 2D materials in the visible and near-infrared regions to support research in optoelectronic devices and related applications. A few typical methods and related physical mechanisms we mainly use for perfect absorbers are narrow-band perfect absorbers, double-band perfect absorbers, and broad-band perfect absorbers.
