Nanotechnology research cooperation between NSF's E3S Center and German Leibnitz Institute
(Nanowerk News) The National Science Foundation
Energy Efficient Electronics Science (E3S) Centre of U.S.A. and the
German Leibniz Institute Innovations for High Performance
Microelectronics (IHP) in Frankfurt (Oder) agree to facilitate research
cooperation and exchanges in fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology
between both parties for their mutual scientific benefit.
Special focus is
devoted to novel basic materials science approaches to build up low
power Silicon microelectronics, for example by merging photonics and
electronics on the mature Si technology platform.
E3S director Prof. Eli Yablonovitch visited IHP on 22nd June 2010 to
discuss with IHP scientists various approaches to achieve these goals.
IHP offers a unique research environment to tackle these questions, as
its materials science, technology as well as circuit and system design
departments allow to address all levels of modern Si microelectronics
Furthermore, IHP recently opened a joined Si photonics
laboratory with Technical University of Berlin.
