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.

Healing Achilles heel of two-dimensional transistors

Stability – in the sense of stable operation thorough lifetime – is one of the key characteristics that an electronic device need to present to be suitable for applications. And it is the Achilles heel of transistors based on two-dimensional materials, which typically show much worse stability than devices based on silicon. Researchers from TU Wien and from the Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center have now demonstrated a novel engineering approach to enhance the electrical stability of two-dimensional transistors by carefully tuning the Fermi energy. The results have been published in Nature Electronics.
