AMO’s Graphene Switch at IEEE Spectrum

IEEE Spectrum on AMO's Graphene Switch

Finally we made it into IEEE Spectrum Magazine. They report about AMO’s latest paper in the August issue of IEEE Electron Device Letters. The paper is about a novel graphene based switch that uses a field-induced structural modification of the graphene channel to stop current from flowing inside the switch. Coincidentally I am working for AMO and my diploma thesis is about producing and characterizing this new switch. 🙂

Graphene Crystallites – Made in Germany

AMO GmbH now offers large graphene crystallites. See the following press release:

„Graphen-Substrates Made In Germany“

AMO GmbH, well known manufacturer and service provider in the area of silicon nanotechnology, now offers large graphene crystallites for research.

Graphene, a single layer of carbon atoms, has moved into the focus of interest of scientists due to their extraordinary physical properties. Graphene is a promising material in particular for nanoelectronics, nanophotonics and nanomechanics.

AMO´s graphene crystallites are deposited by exfoliation on silicon chips covered by a thin SiO2 layer. The graphene crystallites are available in monolayer, bilayer and larger thicknesses. An improved fabrication technique allows larger crystallites with dimensions up to above 100 µm.

The offered substrates are mainly suited for research and development activities in the field of graphene, for fabrication of nanoelectronic devices and for investigation of the widely unknown material properties.

AMO itself is active in research and development of graphene nanodevices and intents to support other research groups worldwide with the supply of high-quality graphene substrates.

AMO offers it´s range of products to interested groups via an online catalogue and provides additional services around graphene.

AMO is a private research service provider, located in Aachen, Germany. AMO provides services in the field of nanotechnology and is manufacturer of measurement systems for ultrafast data acquisition. The company has fabrication and research capacities for electronic and optical devices. Based on an exclusive technology range in Nanolithography, Nanoelectronics, and – photonics devices and components with minimum dimensions of only a few nanometers can be realised.

Neulich bei Google …

AMO - Graphen bei Google

Ein wenig Werbung darf ja sein. Unser Geschäftsführer hat eine Anzeige für unsere Graphen-Proben bei Google Ads geschaltet. Und Tatsache, wenn man „graphene“ bei Google eingibt erscheint mehr oder weniger regelmäßig unsere Anzeige. Den Rhythmus haben wir zwar noch nicht ganz verstanden, aber die Hauptsache ist, dass das Ding erscheint.

AMO GmbH – Graphene

Graphene on sale now!

Well, probably some of you know that I am working on novel graphene based devices for my diploma thesis. Right now we were able to optimize our production of graphene flakes so that AMO GmbH is now able to offer samples with graphene flakes on top. The substrate of our samples is usually p-doped silicon with some nano meters of silicon dioxide on top. It seems like that we are the second in the market after the Manchester based spin off Graphene Industries.
