New perspectives on Layer Transfer and Artificial Crystalline Heterostructures at IKZ – A talk by Dr. Jens Martin

Dr. Jens Martin, from the Leibniz-Insitut für Kristallforschung (IKZ) in Berlin, has been the speaker of the 30th Aachen Graphene Center Seminar. Dr. Martin is the head of the section Semiconductor Nanostructures at IKZ, and one of the coordinators of the IKZ-IRIS Joint Lab “Layer Transfer for 2D-Heterostructures“.  In his talk, presented the recent advances of his group on the growth, release and transfer of thin epitaxial perovskite films, as well in on the in-situ growth of 2D-vdW multilayers and heterostructures.

Healing Achilles heel of two-dimensional transistors

Stability – in the sense of stable operation thorough lifetime – is one of the key characteristics that an electronic device need to present to be suitable for applications. And it is the Achilles heel of transistors based on two-dimensional materials, which typically show much worse stability than devices based on silicon. A team of researchers from TU Wien, AMO GmbH, RWTH Aachen University and Wuppertal University has now demonstrated a novel engineering approach to enhance the electrical stability of two-dimensional transistors by carefully tuning the Fermi energy. The results have been reported in Nature Electronics.
