RWTH: “Graphene 2022” shows the potential of a future technology

The Chair for Electronic Components at RWTH Aachen University, together with AMO GmbH and the Phantoms Foundation, is organizing Europe’s largest conference on graphene and 2D materials from July 5th to 8th, 2022 in Aachen. “Graphene 2022” brings together 76 speakers and 33 exhibitors in the Aachen Eurogress, at the RWTH and in the coronation hall of the town hall.

“After a two-year break due to the pandemic, we are very happy to be able to hold this big meeting here in Aachen. Conferences play an extremely important role in the advancement of science. They are an incubator for new ideas and new collaborations,” says Prof. Max Lemme, Chair of Electronic Components and Managing Director of AMO GmbH. He and his team are the organizers of the conference on site. “It’s a very exciting time for the Research on graphene and 2D materials. 16 years after the discovery of graphene, we are now talking about how we can harness the extraordinary properties of these materials for applications. But for this to succeed, we need to bring different skills together – and for that conferences are important.” , adds Lemme.

It is the twelfth time that experts from all over the world have come together for this conference. The most prominent speakers at “Graphene 2022” include the 2010 Nobel Prize winner for physics, Professor Andre Geim, and the Spanish solid state physicist Professor Pablo Jarillo-Herrero from MIT.
