Emre Ozan Polat

Postdoctoral Researcher, ICFO

I received my BSc. degree from Izmir Institute of Technology (Physics,2009) and Ph.D degree from Bilkent University (Physics, 2015). My research is mainly on the development of graphene based optoelectronic smart systems.

During my PhD, I developed new graphene based devices such as optical modulators, flexible smart windows, saturable absorbers, ultra-thin paper displays, flexible radar absorbing surfaces by combining the advanced optoelectronic properties of graphene within the innovative device schemes.

After PhD, I joined University of Glasgow, (UK) as a Post Doctoral Research Fellow under Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions and worked on the realization of graphene based flexible tactile sensors for robotics and prosthesis. Currently I am working as a post- doctoral researcher at ICFO-The Institute of Photonic Sciences, (Spain).

I am exploring the light-matter interaction in flexible graphene devices for smart sensing and health wearables. I have many publications in high impact factor journals and hold three provisional patents. I am awarded “Young Scientist Award” of European Material Research Society (E-MRS) in 2014, “Silver Leaf Award” of IEEE Prime in 2015 and “Young Innovator of The Year” of Spanish Foundation of Science and Technology in 2017.
