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).
Press release on the website of the DFG.
Dr. Satender Kataria from the Chair of Electronic Devices at RWTH Aachen University has been granted a Theodore von Kármán Fellowship to visit the Department of Physics, IIT Delhi as a visiting scholar. The Kármán Fellowship allows scientists to conduct a research project of their own choice in co-operation with a foreign host institute. The scholarships were set up to foster international exchange and interdisciplinary dialogue by RWTH scientists, either by spending time abroad as visiting scholars or through incoming collaborators. Dr. Kataria will visit IIT Delhi in India, which received Institute of Eminence status in 2018 by the government of India, one of six institutes in India which has been granted the status.Continue reading “Theodore von Kármán Fellowship granted to Dr. Satender Kataria to visit Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi in 2019”

For the second time, Prof. Christoph Stampfer founding member of the “Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center” has been awarded an ERC Grant. After an ERC Starting Grant on “Graphene Quantum Electromechanical Systems” in 2011, he now receives a Consolidator Grant on “2D Materials for Quantum Technologies”.Continue reading “ERC Consolidator Grant on “2D Materials for Quantum Technologies” for Christoph Stampfer”
German Research Foundation (DFG) will support joint projects of RWTH University and AMO
AMO GmbH and RWTH Aachen University will be funded in five sub-projects in the 2nd phase (2018-2021) of the Priority Programme “High Frequency Flexible Bendable Electronics for Wireless Communication Systems” (FFlexCom, SPP 1796) with about 1 million Euro. The joint activities will be carried out within the Aachen Graphene and 2D Materials Center. Continue reading “German Research Foundation (DFG) will support joint projects of RWTH University and AMO”
Researchers of RWTH Aachen University and AMO GmbH in collaboration with the Research Centre Jülich and the University of Siegen have investigated metal/molybdenum sulphide/silicon structures in order to understand the charge transport in such structures and to explore the possible potential of molybdenum sulphide to use as a dielectric in vertical heterostructured devices. The work was recently published in ACS Applied Nanomaterials (DOI: 10.1021/acsanm.8b01412).
