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.


Dr. Lutz Waldecker starts at RWTH with a fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation

This August, the Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center has gained new valuable expertise with the arrival of Dr. Lutz Waldecker as senior researcher in the Stampfer Group (2nd Institute of Physics A). Waldecker is an expert on exciton physics and ultrafast dynamics in solids, in particular two-dimensional (2D) semiconductors. He is coming from Stanford, with a Feodor-Lynen return fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.

The first operational amplifier based on a two-dimensional material

Researchers from TU Wien, AMO GmbH, University of Pisa and Wuppertal University have realized the first operational amplifier based on the two-dimensional semiconductor MoS2, reaching a key milestone towards the vision of a flexible electronics all based on two dimensional materials. This result has just appeared in the journal Nature Electronics.
