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).
Bridging the gap between lab-scale manufacturing and large volume production of electronic devices based on two-dimensional materials – this is the mission of the 2D Experimental Pilot Line, a €20 million project funded by the European Commission within the H2020 program. Its kick-off meeting is planned on October 8, 2020.
On October 2, 2020, the project Digital Hardware Hub Aachen has been awarded a second star in the three-star evaluation process of the program “SofortprogrammPLUS” of the Rhineland Economic Development Agency (Zukunftsagentur Rheinisches Revier).
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.
On Monday, August 10, 2020, AMO GmbH received the visit of Rudolf Henke, member of the German parliament (Bundestag).
This brochure outlines the history of AMO GmbH, its long lasting mission and its newly defined value system. It also gives an outlook on AMO’s vision for the future, as a non-profit research company in the field of nanotechnologies. [read more »]
AMO GmbH is partner of FOXES, a FET Proactive Project recently approved by the European Commission. FOXES is an acronym for “Fully Oxide-based Zero-Emission and Portable Energy Supply”. The project aims at realizing a zero-emission, portable energy supply for powering wireless devices for the Internet of Things. [read more »]
On May 26, 2020, the Advisory Board of the Rhineland Economic Development Agency (Zukunftsagentur Rheinisches Revier) has announced a list of 83 projects that are recommended for funding within the structural measures planned by the German Federal Government to support the transition to a coal-free economy. The Digital Hardware Hub Aachen is one of them.
Supplying water to cities and towns has become an increasingly serious problem in many parts of the world. In many cases, long-term solutions must necessarily include wastewater reuse, but establishing a closed-loop water supply system is an extremely challenging problem, which involves a lot of political, economical and technological challenges. One of the major problems is the cost of the processes needed to remove tenacious organic contaminants from water – and this is where nanotechnology can help.
Max Lemme is the coordinator of the project NeuroSys – one of the 16 projects that are now in the conception phase of the BMBF-funding initiative “Clusters4Future”, out of 137 initial submissions.
