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.


German Research Foundation (DFG) will support joint projects of RWTH University and AMO

German Research Foundation (DFG) will support joint projects of RWTH University and AMO AMO GmbH and RWTH Aachen University will be funded in five sub-projects in the 2nd phase (2018-2021) of the Priority Programme “High Frequency Flexible Bendable Electronics for Wireless Communication Systems” (FFlexCom, SPP 1796) with about 1 million Euro. The joint activities will …

Researchers of RWTH Aachen and AMO report on the dielectric properties and ion transport in layered molybdenum sulphide (MOS2)

Researchers of RWTH Aachen University and AMO GmbH in collaboration with the Research Centre Jülich and the University of Siegen have investigated metal/molybdenum sulphide/silicon structures in order to understand the charge transport in such structures and to explore the possible potential of molybdenum sulphide to use as a dielectric in vertical heterostructured devices. The work was …

RWTH and AMO researchers demonstrate nearly 100 % quantum efficiency in Graphene/Silicon Photodiodes

The Chair of Electronic Devices at RWTH Aachen University and AMO GmbH in collaboration with the University of Granada has experimentally demonstrated graphene/silicon (G/Si) photodiodes that reach nearly 100% quantum efficiency. The work was recently published in ACS Photonics and has been selected as ACS Editor’s Choice article, highlighting the importance of the research work. The …
