In October 2020, the European Commission launched the 2D-Experimental Pilot Line (2D-EPL), a new €20 million project aimed at developing the first pilot line to manufacture large volumes of electronic components based on graphene and related 2D materials. AMO GmbH is one of the partners of the project, together with Aixtron Ltd. and Oxford Instruments (UK), imec (Belgium), iHP GmbH, Micro Resist Technology GmbH, Aixtron SA and Suss Microtech (Germany), Graphenea (Spain), and VTT (Finland).

AMO GmbH is partner of MISEL (Multispectral Intelligent Vision System with Embedded Low-Power Neural Computing), a project that aims at developing a bio-inspired vision system able to implement advanced recognition tasks, but with much smaller size, weight and power consumption than off-the-shelf components. The project is funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme with a total budget of 4.96 million Euros.
In January 2021, AMO GmbH has launched five new projects funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme. Their acronyms are Aeolus, MISEL, Graced, GreEnergy and 2Exciting, and their topics range from neuromorphic computing, to energy harvesting, to innovative photonic components for air-sensing and food-quality monitoring.

The new nanovate! is online.
In times of COVID-19, AMO comes out in digital glory. The new AMO magazine nanovate! is online in time for the end of the year, providing overview of AMO’s research activities and concepts from the past six months.
AMO GmbH has successfully completed its first virtual trade-fair appearances. On November 13, the Electrical Engineering Day of RWTH Aachen University offered graduates and students the opportunity to inform themselves about various companies and to establish important contacts with potential employers.

On October 2nd, AMO has received the shipment of a new 200mm tool for Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) from Oxford Instruments – just in time for the launch of the 2D Experimental Pilot Line (2D-EPL). This acquisition has been possible thanks to the financial support of the Ministry of Economy, Innovation, Digitization and Energy of the Land North-Rhine Westphalia (MWIDE).
Bridging the gap between lab-scale manufacturing and large volume production of electronic devices based on two-dimensional materials – this is the mission of the 2D Experimental Pilot Line, a €20 million project funded by the European Commission within the H2020 program. Its kick-off meeting is planned on October 8, 2020.
On October 2, 2020, the project Digital Hardware Hub Aachen has been awarded a second star in the three-star evaluation process of the program “SofortprogrammPLUS” of the Rhineland Economic Development Agency (Zukunftsagentur Rheinisches Revier).
On October 28, Max Lemme will give a public lecture with the title: “Graphene – from wonder material to “Killer App”?”. In this lecture, Lemme will discuss not only the unique properties of graphene and related two-dimensional (2D) materials, but also their possible applications in future electronic devices and the challenges that still need to be overcome to bring these devices to the market. The full abstract can be downloaded here.
Researchers from AMO GmbH, ICFO- Institut de Ciencies Fotoniques, RWTH Aachen University, and Bergishe Universität Wuppertal have developed a novel approach for graphene-based photodetectors that allows combining high responsivity and low power consumption, thus circumventing one of the major limitations of state-of-the-art photodetectors based on graphene – namely the high power-consumption caused by their large dark currents.
