Covering approximately 400 members from 27 countries in Europe and continuously growing, the Platform acts as an exchange forum for the topics of industrial manufacturing: materials, equipment, components. It aims to support industry growth in this new field by the development of a common R&D and education strategy and by enabling close cooperation of SME, Industry and Research Institutions.
The European Theoretical Spectroscopy Facility is a User Facility charged with providing support and service to research under way in academic, government and industrial laboratories. All domains that need knowledge about electronic excitations, transport and spectroscopy will benefit from the ETSF, such as condensed matter physics and chemistry, biology, materials and nanoscience. Theoretical Spectroscopy reveals the mechanisms of electronic excitations and can predict new materials properties. This combination of quantum mechanics theory and numerical calculations constitutes an approach that is complementary to experiment.
The European EuroQUAM Program focuses on four themes with linked objectives: Atomic quantum gases with controllable interactions; Formation of molecules in ultracold atomic gases; Cooling molecules; and Ultracold plasmas and Rydberg gases.
The overall objective of EuroSQIP is to develop a 3/4-qubit quantum information processor (QIP) capable of running elementary quantum algorithms and protocols; demonstrating quantum state control of a macroscopic multi-partite system; demonstrating entanglement and entanglement transfer.
EXCELL's objectives are aimed at overcoming the fragmentation of the European research landscape in the area of multifunctional films. EXCELL moves frontiers of science and technology related to multifunctional films and improves European competitiveness by technology transfer. EXCELL's results will find a wide range of applications such as low-friction coatings earmarked for a wide use in mechanical engineering, new protective anticorrosion nano-films to be used in construction, marine and land transportation, etc., novel coatings with imbedded nano-clusters to be used in computer industry, etc.
FAST-DOT is an experimental program funded under the Seventh Framework Programme of the European Union to: Enable widespread application and further development of laser based photonics; Demonstrate new applications of lasers in biotechnology and medical fields; Develop new industrially integrated design rules for the production of specific quantum dot materials; Unlock the potential of quantum dot materials in biophotonics; Accelerate the implementation of quantum dot lasers through European SMEs and companies; Train a new generation of researchers in the range of new technological areas for quantum dot devices.
FIBLYS (or FIB anaLYSis) is a European funded project where leading researches and industry collaborate to create a new apparatus for nanotechnology that will unite nano-structuring, nano-manipulation, nano-analytic and nano-vision capabilities in one unique 'multi-nano' tool. It is based on a dual Focused Ion Beam (FIB) and Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) together with Scanning Probe Microscope (SPM) and optional possibility of important analytical capabilities such as Energy Dispersive X-ray Spectroscopy (EDX), 3D Electron Backscatter Diffraction (EBSD), Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (TOFMS), Electron Beam Induced Current (EBIC) or Cathodoluminescence (CL).
