In October, the Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center has gained a new member: Prof. Dante Kennes, professor for Theoretical Condensed Matter Physics at RWTH Aachen University and visiting scientist at the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg.Continue reading “Prof. Dante Kennes joins the Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center”
Graphene2020 – the 10th edition of Graphene Conference series – will start in a few days, October 19-23, 2020. This is the largest European Event in Graphene and 2D Materials, and a main meeting point of the graphene community worldwide.Continue reading “Strong presence of the Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center at Graphene2020”
Bridging the gap between lab-scale manufacturing and large volume production of electronic devices based on two-dimensional materials – this is the mission of the 2D Experimental Pilot Line, a €20 million project funded by the European Commission within the H2020 program. Its kick-off meeting is planned on Thursday, October 8, 2020.Continue reading “The 2D-Experimental Pilot Line is at the starting blocks”

The Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center congratulates Sudipta Dubey for her appointment as Assistant Professor at the Physics Department of the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Kanpur, in India.Continue reading “Congratulations to Prof. Sudipta Dubey!”
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).Continue reading “Dr. Lutz Waldecker starts at RWTH with a fellowship of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation”
The Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center congratulates Hiroo Suzuki for his appointment as Assistant Professor at the Graduate School of Natural Science and Technology at Okayamy University in Japan.
Dr. Suzuki came to Aachen in April 2018, as senior researcher in the Stampfer Lab (2nd Institute of Physics A) with an Overseas Research Fellowship from the “Japan Society for the Promotion of Science”. In Aachen, he worked on the transport properties of graphene and bilayer graphene constrictions and nanoribbons.
“I am very happy for Hiroo that he can return to Japan as Assistant Professor. A very nice success story and we wish him all the best for his future career”, says Prof. Christoph Stampfer
With what could be a step forward towards large-scale high-performance graphene electronics, a team of German and French scientists has demonstrated the excellent quality of monoisotopic hexagonal boron nitride grown at atmospheric pressure by the group of James Edgar at Kansas State University.Continue reading “The excellent quality of boron-nitride grown at atmospheric pressure”
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.Continue reading “Graphene on Arte”
On February 20, 2020, the radio station Deutschlandfunk Kultur has released a feature piece on “Graphene: the flat all-rounder”. Produced by the journalists Jennifer Rieger und Frank Kaspar, the piece offers 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.Continue reading “Graphene on the radio”
