2D materials are at the very limit of thin-film dimensions with thicknesses down to a single atom. These materials exhibit remarkable electronic and optoelectronic properties which researchers today are trying to harness for next-generation devices for electronics, optoelectronics and energy applications.
While graphene kick-started exploration and application of these ultra-thin materials, it has created a vast field of exploration and application of several other 2D materials like nitrides (hBN), transition metal dichalcogenides (MoS2, WSe2 etc.) and even 2D oxides.
In this webinar, we will address the growth and characterization of 2D materials for electronic applications.
After being introduced to different growth and characterization techniques, I would like to sketch the process for the fabrication of devices based on 2D Materials, in particular, graphene as the most prominent representative of this group. Therefore, a short overview of transfer, structuring and contacting the materials are given which are the important steps to build the devices. Finally, different examples of devices fabricated at AMO are presented.
Dr Gordon Rinke obtained his PhD in Materials Science from the EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland in 2013. After spending over 6 years in the industry for an organic semiconductor tool manufacturer as a lead process engineer, he joined the AMO GmbH in Aachen, Germany in 2021 as Project Manager for the European 2D Experimental Pilot Line Project and became deputy of the graphene electronics group. His background covers the nanostructure growth and fabrication of organic and inorganic materials and the process development and optimization of prototype machines.
