The workshop “Sensing with graphene and 2-dimensional materials” will take place at Forum M in the city center of Aachen, Germany from November 5-6, 2018. This workshop is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). For more detailed information please refer to the attached Flyer Sensor Workshop 2018.
The Graphene Flagship returns to the Mobile World Congress, bringing with it the next generation of mobile technologies. Step into the Graphene Pavilion and enter the fascinating world of graphene and related materials in an exhibition designed to bring these materials to life. Discover how they can be made in the large-scale in the Graphene Knowledge Centre and experience cutting-edge new technologies, with interactive demonstrations in Sensors and IoT, Wearables and Health, Datacom and Energy. RWTH Aachen University and AMO will present ultrafast graphene based photodetectors and fully flexible logic and RF circuits for future 5G and IoT applications.
Professor Joachim Knoch, Institute of Semiconductor Electronics as well as Professor Andrei Vescan, Institute of Compound Semiconductor Technology from RWTH Aachen University join as new members the Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center.
Prof. Vescan is a well-known expert for compound semiconductors, with a research focus on MOCVD material synthesis. He is currently working on the synthesis of different TMDCs. Prof. Knoch has a long experience on nano-scale semiconductor devices and works currently on new device concepts like tunneling transistors using 2D materials. These specific competences of the two new PIs are complementing and broadening the scope of the activities in the Aachen Graphene Center.
