Aachen Research Results Presented at NRW Nano Conference
At the 8th NRW Nano Conference in Dortmund, NRW Minister of Economic Affairs Andreas Pinkwart took the opportunity to visit the AMO GmbH booth to talk to RWTH Professor and AMO executive director Max Lemme about the latest research activities at the Aachen Graphene & 2D-Materials Center in the fields of nanotechnology and two-dimensional materials, such as graphene.
Professor Lemme is head of the Chair of Electronic Devices at RWTH Aachen University and conducts research in the field of (opto-)electronic and nanoelectronic devices made from two-dimensional materials. In talking to Pinkwart, he explained how the Graphene & 2D-Materials Center functions as a competence center that combines the expertise of world leading Aachen research groups in the fields of materials science, analytics, device design and semiconductor fabrication. Joining forces, RWTH and AMO thus explore the electronic and mechanical properties of graphene and other two-dimensional materials for use in diverse applications. Among these are the technology of ultra-wide bandwidths communications with the highest data rates (5G), the internet of things (IoT), intelligent sensor networks for cities (Smart Cities), personalized health care, as well as autonomous driving. In this way, RWTH is able to cover the entire innovations value chain for digital hardware needed to bridge the gap from fundamental university research to later industrial application.
With more than 700 experts from science, industry, and politics, the NRW Nano Conference is Germany's largest conference with international appeal in the field of nanotechnology. Hosts are the NRW Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalization and Energy and the NanoMicroMaterialsPhotonic.NRW state cluster in partnership with Wirtschaftsförderung Dortmund. At the exhibition that is a part of the conference, AMO and RWTH presented their latest research findings in the fields of nanotechnology, sensor technology and 2D-Materials, as well as in sterile chamber production for applications in the communications and biotechnology sector.
