German Research Foundation (DFG) will support joint projects of RWTH University and AMO
AMO GmbH and RWTH Aachen University will be funded in five sub-projects in the 2nd phase (2018-2021) of the Priority Programme “High Frequency Flexible Bendable Electronics for Wireless Communication Systems” (FFlexCom, SPP 1796) with about 1 million Euro. The joint activities will be carried out within the Aachen Graphene and 2D Materials Center. [read more »]
AMO GmbH and the Chair of Electronic Devices at RWTH Aachen University in collaboration with the University of Granada has experimentally demonstrated graphene/silicon (G/Si) photodiodes that reach nearly 100% quantum efficiency. The work was recently published in ACS Photonics (DOI: 10.1021/acsphotonics.8b00951) and has been selected as ACS Editor’s Choice article, highlighting the importance of the research work. The work will also appear on a cover page of Journal. [read more »]
Researchers of AMO GmbH and RWTH Aachen University in collaboration with the Research Centre Jülich and the University of Siegen have investigated metal/molybdenum sulphide/silicon structures in order to understand the charge transport in such structures and to explore the possible potential of molybdenum sulphide to use as a dielectric in vertical heterostructured devices. The work was recently published in ACS Applied Nanomaterials (DOI: 10.1021/acsanm.8b01412).
Prof. Andreas Pinkwart, NRW Minister of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy visited the AMO booth to discuss nanotechnology research with Professor Max Lemme.
During the 8th NRW Nano-Conference in Dortmund, Prof. Pinkwart spoke with RWTH Professor and AMO CEO Max Lemme about current research on new materials and nanoelectronics in Aachen, including the interdisciplinary work carried out in the Aachen Graphene & 2D-Materials Center. [read more »]
The workshop “Sensing with graphene and 2D materials” was held on 5th to 6th of November in Aachen with great success. It is financially supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in the frame of the international bilateral project between Lviv Polytechnic National University in Ukraine and AMO GmbH.
Graphene enables ultra-wide bandwidth communications coupled with low power consumption, with potential to surpass the needs of 5G, IoT and Industry 4.0.
Researchers within the Graphene Flagship project, one of the biggest research initiatives of the European Commission, showed that integrated graphene-based photonic devices offer a unique solution for the next generation of optical communications.
Researchers of AMO GmbH and RWTH Aachen University together with colleagues from Center for Nanoscience and Technology (a division of Italian Institute of Technology) have recently developed perovskite microdisc lasers integrated into silicon nitride photonic circuits. This optically pumped lasers have thresholds of 4.7 µJcm-2 surpassing the thresholds of other CMOS compatible lasers. These results were published in Nano Letters (DOI: 10.1021/acs.nanolett.8b02811).

In a cutting-edge industrialised state like North Rhine-Westphalia, key technologies, such as nanotechnology, microsystems technology, photonics and the broad field of new materials, are of particular importance. Their importance lies in the fact that they form the basis for innovations and new products and provide complex answers to the challenges of our time. 70% of all innovations today, for example, depend either directly or indirectly on the development of new materials that meet the required specifications.
