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.


A clever way of protecting graphene

Researchers from AMO GmbH, Oxford Instruments, Cambridge University, RWTH Aachen University and the University of Wuppertal have demonstrated a new method to use PEALD on graphene without introducing defects into the graphene itself.

Upstream modes and antidots poison graphene quantum Hall effect

A collaboration between the groups of Benoit Hackens at UC Louvain and of Christoph Stampfer at RWTH Aachen University solves the puzzle of the fragility of the quantum Hall effect in graphene. The quantum Hall effect is both a textbook example of topological protection and a central tool of metrology labs. In graphene, the quantum …
