A new research group on Perovskite Optoelectronics

The exploration of novel materials for photonics and optoelectronics applications has long since been a major focus of research at AMO. Two classes of materials have attracted in particular attention: two-dimensional (2D) materials and perovskites. So far, most of the research on perovskites at AMO has been conducted by the Nanophotonic Group, but, given the growing relevance of the topic, a new group dedicated to Perovskite Optoelectronics has been funded in 2022. Leader of the new Perovskite Optoelectronics Group is Surendra B. Anantharaman, who has joined AMO in September 2022.  [read more »]

How to report and benchmark emerging field-effect transistors

One of the challenges encountered by research on novel electronic devices is to compare devices based on different materials in a consistent way. RWTH Professor Max Lemme and colleagues from USA, China, and Belgium have now proposed a set of clear guidelines for benchmarking key parameters and performance metrics of emergent field-effect transistors. The guidelines have been published as a Perspective Article in Nature Electronics. [read more »]

Learning From the Brain to Save Energy

AMO GmbH is cooperating with Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University scientists, as well as with several companies from the region in two major BMBF-funded project, NEUROTEC and NeuroSys, which have the goal of establishing a technological base for neuro-inspired AI hardware made in Europe. Now, having met at the Jülich-Aachen Neuromorphic Computing Day held at Forschungszentrum Jülich on May 24, 2022, Prof. Reiner Waser and Prof. Max Lemme are sharing an insight into the progress of the projects.

An EU delegation at AMO

A delegation of the EU Commission has paid a visit to AMO GmbH, within the broader context of a site-visit at RWTH Aachen University. Theme of the visit was the role of universities in contributing to the competitiveness and prosperity of Europe, and what the EU can do to foster their future development. [read more »]

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. [read more »]
