The Aachen Graphene & 2D-Materials Center exploits the unique properties of graphene, two-dimensional (2D) materials and 2D-heterostructures for different applications in the fields of electronics, sensors and photonics. The center brings together the complementary expertise and facilities of Aachen’s world leading research groups in the area of material science, analytics, device design and manufacturing, and hence covers the entire value chain needed to bridge the gap from the basic science to applications.


Workshop “Sensing with graphene and 2-dimensional materials”

The workshop “Sensing with graphene and 2-dimensional materials” will take place at Forum M in the city center of Aachen, Germany from November 5-6, 2018. This workshop is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).

We have realized a valley flip for confined electrons in graphene quantum dots. It works by shifting the quantum dot a few nm across the superstructure of a graphene/h-BN stack (Nature Nanotechnology (2018).). Press release

Novel Types of Quantum Bits

The research team of Professor Markus Morgenstern, chair of experimental physics (solid state physics) at RWTH Aachen University, discovered new possibilities for quantum electronics, with the support of colleagues from the Technical University of Vienna and the University of Manchester. The physicists combined two ultrathin materials, namely graphene and Boron-Nitride, in a way which makes …
