The Zuse community continues growing. The Association of Non-Profit Industrial Research Institutes has affiliated as its 74th member the Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mikro- und Optoelektronik GmbH (AMO) from Aachen. AMO is active in the research and development of new technologies such as nano- and optoelectronics. During the membership ceremony that took place yesterday in Aachen, the participants were all very pleased with the development. [read more »]
ULISSES is a European research project developing small, low-power and networked gas sensors. The goal is to develop a dense mesh of mobile, miniaturized sensors that will report air quality in real time, enabling people to make informed decisions and, in the long run, to improve air quality.
Experts from all over Europe gathered in Aachen to discuss the challenges of wafer-scale integration of 2D materials, in a workshop organized by AMO and the Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center.
Dr. Assaf Ya’akobovitz from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Israel) has been the speaker of the Aachen Graphene-Flagship Seminar on November 6th, 2019.

Researchers from AMO attended the 14th edition of Graphene Week at the Marina Congress Centre in Helsinki, Finland, from 23 to 27 September 2019. The Graphene Week is the leading conference on graphene in Europe and brings together more than 200 experts from industry and academia. It is a showcase of the latest innovations, of the leading technologies and of the hottest research topics in the field.
A big success for AMO and the Aachen Graphene & 2D Materials Center
FET Open is a very competitive funding program within the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation program. It supports joint international projects aimed at radically new technologies, favoring ideas that go well beyond the state of the art. The competition is fierce, as the program is open to all sciences and disciplines. At each call the number of submissions greatly exceeds the available budget. Yet AMO has been extremely successful in the call of January 2019, winning three granted projects.
The next big challenge in the field of graphene and 2D materials is the development of large-scale fabrication processes compatible with CMOS technology. This challenge will be the topic of a workshop organized in Aachen by AMO GmbH and RWTH Aachen University, on November 12-13, 2019. [read more »]
Graphene enables the world’s smallest accelerometer, pointing to a new era in wearable sensor technology
