The magazine Europhysics News (Vol. 49 No. 4), edited by the European Physical Society, has published a highlight entitled “Nanoscale light trapping in graphene/h-BN by sound waves” focussing on the recent paper “Acoustically-driven surface and hyperbolic plasmon-phonon polaritons in graphene/h-BN heterostructures on piezoelectric substrates”, J. Phys. D: Appl. Phys. 51, 204004 (2018), by the SAWtrain researchers at the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid Rajveer Fandan, Jorge Pedrós, Alberto Boscá, Javier Martínez and Fernando Calle in collaboration with Jürgen Schiefele at ICMM-CSIC.


2017, December 11“Nanu, Nano? meets the University of Augsburg and SAWtrain”

Instructed by SAWtrain PI Christoph Westerhausen on four afternoons, 30 curious and excited high school students from various schools in the Augsburg area discovered the physics of lab-on-a-chip applications employing surface acoustic waves and the physics of nanometer sized model systems for cell membranes. Thank you, Manuel and Andrej, for sharing your enthusiasm with the next generation physicists!
