Pioneering 2D materials for semiconductor industry – the 2D-Experimental Pilot Line presents itself

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).

MISEL: a new EU-project for developing an intelligent camera-sensor technology

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.

RWTH Public Lecture by Max Lemme

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.

Combining high responsivity and low power consumption in graphene-based photodetectors

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.
