Healing the Achilles heel of 2D transistors


Graphene Flagship researchers have now demonstrated a novel engineering approach to enhance the electrical stability of two-dimensional transistors by carefully tuning the Fermi energy. The results, part of the 2D-Experimental Pilot Line (2D-EPL) project within the Graphene Flagship, have been reported in Nature Electronics.

2D-EPL offers developers the chance to test graphene-based sensors


The 2D Experimental Pilot Line (2D-EPL), a project grown from the Graphene Flagship, has launched its first customisable wafer run targeting sensor applications. Companies, universities and research institutes can include their designs as dies on joint wafers, to test their ideas for devices on a larger scale at relatively low costs.

Beyond graphene: antimonene and germanium nanolayers


Graphene and transition-metal dichalcogenides are the most common examples of layered materials, but there is a world of other possibilities that have not been fully exploited: for example, antimony and germanium nanolayers. The FLAG-ERA 2D-SbGe project explores layered materials “off the beaten track”.
