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 on Arte

Max Lemme is the protagonist of a short video produced by Arte for series Verknüpft (Linked). Using a simple language, the video explores the connection between a common pencil and a self-driving car. That connection is graphene – or better nanotechnology based on graphene, like the one developed by Lemme’s group at AMO and RWTH. 

Graphene on the radio

On February 20, 2020, the radio station Deutschlandfunk Kultur has released a feature piece on “Graphene: the flat all-rounder” – an accessible overview of the unique properties of graphene, and a well-balanced analysis of the gap between the stellar expectations grown around this material and its current applications.
