HEA2D project completes demonstration of end-to-end processing chain of 2D nanomaterials

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, near Aachen, Germany says that, together with five partners, it has successfully investigated the production, properties and applications of two-dimensional (2D) nanomaterials in the HEA2D project, which has been supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2014-2020.

Aixtron’s partners for implementing systems technology and integrating materials into plastic molded parts have been the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology (IPT), Coatema Coating Machinery GmbH, and Kunststoff-Institut für die mittelständische Wirtschaft NRW GmbH (K.I.M.W.) Lüdenscheid. The work was supported in terms of nano-analytics and the development of prototype components by the Electronic Materials and Nanostructures workgroup in the Engineering Faculty of the University of Duisburg-Essen (Uni-DuE) and by the Graphene-based Nanotechnology workgroup in the Science and Technology Faculty of the University of Siegen.

The conclusion is that 2D materials integrated into mass-production processes have the potential to create integrated and systemic product and production solutions that are socially, economically and ecologically sustainable. Application areas for the technologies developed and materials investigated in this project are mainly composite materials and coatings, highly sensitive sensors, power generation and storage, electronics, information and communication technologies (ICT) as well as photonics and quantum technologies.

In addition, the knowledge gained in the project has led to further development of existing system technology. Together with the project partners, prototype systems and demonstrators for 2D semiconductor materials have been manufactured and successfully tested.
