A future emerging technology project funded by the EU

ABOUT

THE PROJECT

BACKGROUND

Devices such as photovoltaic cells, light emitting diodes, electronic and optoelectronic micro-/nano-sensors are prominent examples of thin film applications where the precise control of material deposition and its degree of order (crystallinity) are vital for their performance and function.

PROBLEM

Deposition of technologically-relevant thin films and device fabrication are time-consuming, costly, and can't control spatial deposition of crystalline matter on surfaces.

SOLUTION

Development of a universal deposition technology of amorphous and tuned crystalline matter on multiple substrates, at room temperature and pressure.

IMPACT

Disruptive innovation in many sectors, from sensing to wearables and internet-of-things, from health biotech (e.g. drug delivery) to renewable energy technologies.

 

OUR VISION

To revolutionize microelectronics applications, photovoltaic technologies, fuel cells, and health care biotech by developing the ultimate way to control matter on surfaces, a technology offering the possibility to fine-tune matter at will, in a table-top solution affordable to engineers, researchers, and industrialists wanting to develop a new concept, material, or functional device.

This new, compelling, and radical long-term vision describes a science- and technology-enabled future that is far beyond the state-of-the-art in advanced materials development and open new roadmaps to a plethora of future devices and applications, transforming the landscape in the European technological and industrial base.

 

To allow European industry to provide local markets with innovative low-cost and high-performance products, securing its position as a world leader in advanced materials technologies, facilitating the commercialization of major technological advances in a wide range of applications contributing to future growth, competitiveness, and sustainability.
