Will graphene really take the semiconductor industry towards the 'Beyond CMOS' era? Some answers to this key question are sought through experiment and simulation in this European research project on Graphene-based Nanoelectronic Devices called GRAND.
This EU pilot action GRAPHENE-CA paves the road to the FET Flagship "Graphene-Driven Revolutions in ICT and Beyond" (GRAPHENE). The GRAPHENE flagship ambition is to bring together a focused, interdisciplinary European research community that aims at a radical technology shift in information and communication technology that exploits the unique properties of graphene and related two-dimensional materials.
This website had been specifically developed to deliver the findings of two European Nanotechnologies Projects funded by the European Commission' Sixth Framework Programme, under priority 3: Nanotechnology and nanosciences, knowledge-based multifunctional materials and new production processes and devices (NMP). The complimentary activities of these projects has meant they are now co-ordinated as cluster project delivering the findings through a single dissemination channel.
InForm is a network of institutions funded through FP7 Theme 4: Nanosciences, nanotechnologies, materials and new production technologies to promote discussions in the field of nanotechnologies and nanoscale in formulations.
The overall objective of the INTELTEX project is to develop a radically new approach to obtain intelligent textiles combining three innovative functions: continuous measurement of mechanical stresses applied to the textile structure; thermal self regulated textile surfaces; detection of chemicals (toxic volatile solvents).
MAGMANet is an interdisciplinary Network of Excellence that focuses on the magnetic properties of molecular based systems. The consortium comprises 22 leading European players in the field from 8 EU states plus Romania and Switzerland. The entire range of expertise necessary for carrying out research in molecular magnetism is involved, from theoretical and solid state physics, to synthetic organic and inorganic chemistry.
This European Nanotechnologies Project is funded by the European Commission Sixth Framework Programme, under priority 3: Nanotechnology and nanosciences, knowledge-based multifunctional materials and new production processes and devices (NMP). The first level objective of the project is to provide the manufacturing industry with an entirely new platform for manufacturing (i.e. even beyond micromanufacturing), by way of the high productivity, high resolution, direct, one step laser sintering process.
The main scientific objective of the partners of this consortium is to develop new types of artificial materials, referred to below as metamaterials, with electromagnetic properties that cannot be found among natural materials. The results of this development should lead to a conceptually new range of radio, microwave, and optical technologies, based on revolutionary new materials made by large-scale assembly of some basic elements (nanoscopic and microscopic) in unprecedented combinations.
