One thing that has become clear in the last decade of graphene research is that it is necessary to protect the surface of graphene from external contaminants, to preserve its exceptional electronic properties and be able to exploit them into novel devices. The depositions of dielectric materials on top of graphene is therefore an essential step of manufacturing graphene-based electronic and photonic devices. [read more »]

Once a pioneer in Aachen, ANIMA, the “soul” of AMO (ANIMA: Italian for soul), retires after 26 years of service. It was one of the first turbines installed in the Aachen urban area and, for a long time, the largest wind turbine commissioned by a university campus in Europe. Financed by the EU structural-aid funds for the long-term promotion of research and innovation, the plant was operated by the non-profit research foundry AMO GmbH, which had already started to look for alternative energy sources. The goal was to generate part of the energy needed for the research institute itself. [read more »]
On Tuesday, May 11, Dr. Anna Lena Giesecke, will present AMO’s latest progress on integrated perovskite light-emitters in an invited talk at CLEO, the world-renowned conference for laser science and photonics applications, co-sponsored by the American Physical Society, IEEE Photonics Society and The Optical Society (OSA).

An interview with Max Lemme over the Future-Cluster NeuroSys
In a video interview for the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of RWTH Aachen University, Prof. Max Lemme explains the vision behind the Future-Cluster NeuroSys, the role of neuromorphic hardware in shaping the future of artificial intelligence applications, and the necessity of addressing not only the technical aspects, but also the socio-economic implications of this new technology, to ensure that it conforms “by design” with European values.

In the recently launched EU-project GRACED, AMO GmbH and partners exploit advanced nanophotonic-concepts to develop a modular system for monitoring the quality of fruits and vegetables along the entire value-chain.
AMO GmbH is partner of GreEnergy, a new project funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 Programme, which aims at developing optical nano-antennas as cost-effective solar energy harvester for a greener future.
Two-dimensional (2D) materials have a huge potential for providing devices with much smaller size and extended functionalities with respect to what can be achieved with today’s silicon technologies. But to exploit this potential we must be able to integrate 2D materials into semiconductor manufacturing lines – a notoriously difficult step. A team of researchers from Sweden and Germany now reports a new method to make this work.
