This work package is devoted towards the long term perspective of establishing graphene based high-frequency
electronics technologies, which are capable of significantly outperforming state-of-the-art technologies.
Therefore the key objectives of this project are:
¿ Optimize process technologies critical towards meeting the requirements of specific applications, including
work on contact resistance, gate stack, passivation, band gap engineering and integration of different 2D
¿ Identify further key technological bottlenecks for realizing graphene based high frequency integrated circuits
and develop solutions for solving them.
¿ Develop novel concepts for realizing graphene-based high-frequency devices including ballistic devices.
¿ Design and realization of graphene-based integrated circuits capable of fully utilizing the unique electronic
properties of graphene.
¿ Assess the developed technologies towards the current state-of-the-art and define target parameters for
ensuring long term relevance.
¿ Define means of standardization, both for materials, processes and devices.
¿ Realize different kinds of integrated circuits in order to verify the performance of the developed devices and to
benchmark these against established IC technologies.
¿ Based on this work, establish a clear and detailed roadmap for developing graphene as the next-generation of
