The Aachen Graphene and 2D Material Center warmly welcomes Mr. Vikas Jangra. Vikas is a last year M.Tech student from IIT Delhi, who has won a prestigious DAAD-India fellowship to pursue his master thesis at the Chair of Electronic Devices (ELD) at RWTH under the guidance of Prof. Max Lemme and Dr. Satender Kataria.Continue reading “A new DAAD-India fellow at ELD”
Microelectronics is a major driving force for innovation and digitalization, and a key tool to sustain the economic strength of Germany and Europe. To actively sustain this field, the BMBF has announced at the end of 2018 the funding line “Research for new microelectronics (ForMikro)”. Two PIs of the Aachen Graphene and 2D Materials Center, Max Lemme and Joachim Knoch, have each won a granted project in the first call of this new funding scheme.Continue reading “Max Lemme and Joachim Knoch have both received a BMBF “ForMikro” grant”
A big success for AMO and the Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center
FET Open is a very competitive funding program within the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program. It supports joint international projects aimed at radically new technologies, favoring ideas that go well beyond the state of the art. The competition is fierce, as the program is open to all sciences and disciplines. At each call the number of submissions greatly exceeds the available budget. Yet AMO has been extremely successful in the call of January 2019, winning three granted projects.Continue reading “AMO launches three new FET Open Projects”
The next big challenge in the field of graphene and 2D materials is the development of large-scale fabrication processes compatible with CMOS technology. This challenge will be the topic of a workshop organized in Aachen by AMO GmbH and RWTH Aachen University, on November 12-13, 2019.Continue reading “WORKSHOP ANNOUNCEMENT: “Wafer-scale integration of 2D materials””
In what could be a breakthrough for body sensor and navigation technologies, a team of scientists in Sweden and Germany has developed the smallest accelerometer yet reported, exploiting the unique mechanical and conducting properties of graphene.Continue reading “Graphene enables the world’s smallest accelerometer, pointing to a new era in wearable sensor technology”
Jose Pozo, CTO of EPIC – the European Photonics Industry Consortium – talked to Prof. Max Lemme, CEO of AMO GmbH, Aachen and Chair of Electronic Devices at RWTH Aachen University where he researches on graphene and related materials and their application in electronics, photonics and sensors.Continue reading “EPIC interviews AMO CEO Max Lemme”
The latest issue of the scientific journal Nature Materials focusses on the current status of large-scale graphene production. Mastering the large scale production of graphene and its integration into electronic devices is currently major roadblock towards the commercial success of this novel material.Continue reading “Nature Materials puts spotlight on large scale graphene production”
The German Research Foundation (DFG) is establishing 14 new Priority Programmes (SPP) for the year 2020. This was decided by the DFG Senate in Bonn. One of the 14 new programs, selected from 50 submitted initiatives, was set up with the contribution of Prof. Christoph Stampfer (a member of the Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center) and focuses on 2D material based heterostructures. The new program is entitled “2D Materials – Physics of van der Waals Heterostructures (2DMP)” and it is coordinated by Prof. Dr. Thomas Heine (TU Dresden).
