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.
The cluster “NeuroSys – Neuromorphic Hardware for Autonomous Artificial Intelligence Systems” will receive €45 million funding from the Federal Ministry of Education and Research to contribute to the technological independence of Germany and Europe in the field of artificial intelligence.

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).
