A new paradigm of THz-energy harvester based on graphene

Researchers from AMO GmbH, RWTH Aachen University, Chalmers University and the University of Wuppertal have developed a novel type of flexible energy harvester that shows good prospects for powering wearable and conformal devices. The work has been published open-access on ACS Applied Electronic Materials.

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 […]

Graphene enables the world’s smallest accelerometer, pointing to a new era in wearable sensor technology

In what could be a breakthrough for body sensor and navigation technologies, AMO and a team of Swedish scientists have developed the smallest accelerometer yet reported, exploiting the unique mechanical and conducting properties of graphene.
