On Monday, August 10, 2020, AMO GmbH received the visit of Rudolf Henke, member of the German parliament (Bundestag).
Researchers from TU Wien, AMO GmbH, University of Pisa and Wuppertal University have realized the first operational amplifier based on the two-dimensional semiconductor MoS2, reaching a key milestone towards the vision of a flexible electronics all based on two dimensional materials. This result has just appeared in the journal Nature Electronics.
This brochure outlines the history of AMO GmbH, its long lasting mission and its newly defined value system. It also gives an outlook on AMO’s vision for the future, as a non-profit research company in the field of nanotechnologies. [read more »]
Max Lemme and co-workers have recently published a review article on nanoelectromechanical (NEMS) sensors based on suspended two-dimensional (2D) materials in the journal RESEARCH, an open-access multidisciplinary journal launched in 2018 as the first journal in the Science Partner Journal (SPJ) program. The paper is an invited contribution to a special issue on “Progress and challenges in emerging 2D nanomaterials – preparation, processing, and device integration”, and has the purpose of contributing to the development of the field of 2D materials for sensor applications and to their integration with conventional semiconductor technology.

AMO GmbH is partner of FOXES, a FET Proactive Project recently approved by the European Commission. FOXES is an acronym for “Fully Oxide-based Zero-Emission and Portable Energy Supply”. The project aims at realizing a zero-emission, portable energy supply for powering wireless devices for the Internet of Things. [read more »]
A review article on one of the most delicate issues of future electronics based on 2D materials
A team of scientists led by Tibor Grasser and Yuri Illarionov of TU Wien, including RWTH Professor and AMO Director Max Lemme, has published an extensive review of the current search for suitable insulators for two-dimensional (2D) nanoelectronics in Nature Communications.
Researches from AMO GmbH and colleagues from the PLASMOfab project have demonstrated a CMOS-compatible plasmo-photonic Mach-Zehnder-interferometer based on aluminum and Si3N4 waveguides. [read more »]
On May 26, 2020, the Advisory Board of the Rhineland Economic Development Agency (Zukunftsagentur Rheinisches Revier) has announced a list of 83 projects that are recommended for funding within the structural measures planned by the German Federal Government to support the transition to a coal-free economy. The Digital Hardware Hub Aachen is one of them.
Supplying water to cities and towns has become an increasingly serious problem in many parts of the world. In many cases, long-term solutions must necessarily include wastewater reuse, but establishing a closed-loop water supply system is an extremely challenging problem, which involves a lot of political, economical and technological challenges. One of the major problems is the cost of the processes needed to remove tenacious organic contaminants from water – and this is where nanotechnology can help.
