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.
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. [read more »]
Graphene enables the world’s smallest accelerometer, pointing to a new era in wearable sensor technology
In what could be a breakthrough for body sensor and navigation technologies, AMO and a team of Swedish scientists have developed the smallest accelerometer yet reported, exploiting the unique mechanical and conducting properties of graphene.
Novel perovskite semiconductors promise photonic circuits, which can potentially trigger a technological revolution. In the new research project “PerovsKET – Improving the microstructure of perovskites via thermal nanoimprint as key technology for large scale perovskite optoelectronics”. AMO GmbH from Aachen, a team of the Bergische Universität Wuppertal (BUW, chair for electronic devices) and NB Technologies seated in Bonn are researching important basic technologies to combine the perovskite photonics with the world of silicon electronics. The project is funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2014-2020 and by the federal state North Rhine Westphalia for a duration of 3 years with a total budget of 1.5 Mio€.
