A scalable manufacturing-technology for highly sensitive photodetectors on flexible substrates

Researchers from AMO GmbH and RWTH Aachen University have successfully demonstrated high-responsivity  molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) photodetectors on flexible substrates, realized with a scalable manufacturing-technology. The work has been recently published in the journal ACS Photonics, and it is the result of a cooperation with the University of Siegen, Raith B.V., AIXTRON SE, and the University of Wuppertal.

Open PhD positions in the EU-funded project GREAT

AMO is a member of the EU-funded project GREAT (Grating Reflectors Enabled laser Applications and Training). The overall aim of the project is to train a cohort of 15 early-stage researchers (ESRs) through the completion of interconnected individual projects which will deliver innovative approaches for development and use of Grating Waveguide Structures (GWS), from design to implementation in laser systems.

AMO congratulates Prof. Neumaier

AMO congratulates Daniel Neumaier for his appointment as Full Professors at the University of Wuppertal, where he now holds the Chair of Smart Sensor Systems. “We are all very happy for Daniel for this big achievement”, says AMO’s Director Prof. Max Lemme, “even if this is, of course, a big loss for AMO. It was not really unexpected, though, since he is a very prominent scientist with high international visibility, in particular in the graphene community.”

Operating a clean-room in the time of COVID-19

It is has been a long tradition at AMO to take a group picture in front of the blossoming cherry trees outside AMO’s building. This spring the picture was taken in shifts, with a 2m-distance between people – like any other activity at AMO since middle March 2020. [read more »]

Graphene on ARTE

Max Lemme is the protagonist of a short video produced by Arte for series Verknüpft (Linked). Using a simple and vivid language, the video explores the connection between a common pencil and a self-driving car. That connection is graphene – or better nanotechnology based on graphene, like the one developed by Lemme’s group at AMO and RWTH.

A special workshop in Vaals

AMO has grown consistently in the past three years, gaining new people, new projects, and new inputs. On December 4, 2019, it has taken a pause to look back to these developments and to look forward to the future. All members of AMO and of the Chair of Electronic Devices (ELD) have met in Kasteel Vaalsbroek (Vaals, NL) for a one-day workshop to discuss the mission, the vision and the values of AMO.
