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.


Graphene shows unique potential to exceed bandwidth demands of future telecommunications

Graphene enables ultra-wide bandwidth communications coupled with low power consumption, with potential to surpass the needs of 5G, IoT and Industry 4.0. Researchers within the Graphene Flagship project, one of the biggest research initiatives of the European Commission, showed that integrated graphene-based photonic devices offer a unique solution for the next generation of optical communications.

Workshop “Sensing with graphene and 2-dimensional materials”
