NANOLAB is working on various subjects in the field of silicon micro/nano-electronics with special emphasis on the technology, design and modelling of nanoscale solid-state devices (including Silicon-On-Insulator devices, few-electron devices, hybrid SET/CMOS, single electron memory, nanowires and nanotubes), Radio Frequency MEMS devices for in- and above-IC and integrated optoelectronic devices. The group is interested in exploring new materials, novel fabrication techniques, and novel device concepts for future nanoelectronic systems.
The Nanophotonics & Metrology Laboratory (NAM) at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) covers a broad spectrum, from nanophotonics to plasmonics, near-field optical microscopy to spectroscopy, from optical signal processing for sensing and telecommunications to speckle and holographic interferometry.
The group is working on nanoelectronics based on new, two-dimensional materials such as graphene and MoS2. These materials represent the ultimate limit of miniaturization in the vertical dimension and offer substantial advantages over nanotubes or nanowires.
The group develops and characterizes novel nanostructured materials for solar energy applications. The nanocomposite coatings consist typically of dielectric, semiconductor or metal nanocrystals embedded in a dielectric matrix. Applications include antireflection coatings on solar collector glazing, colored coatings with high solar transmittance for novel glazing of solar thermal facades, photoluminescent quantum dot solar concentrators for photovoltaic energy conversion, and optical selective absorber coatings for thermal solar collectors and thermoelectric power generation.
Professor Forro's group at the Institute of Physics of Complex Matter
The Sensors, Actuators and Microsystems Laboratory was created in 1982 by professor Nico F. de Rooij. Since then, SAMLAB has increased in size and has reached a staff of about 50 persons, including 15 PhD students.
ePIXfab was started as the Silicon Photonics Platform within the framework of ePIXnet, the FP6 Network of Excellence on photonic integrated components and circuits. The mission of ePIXfab is to build a future for silicon photonics in Europe through the development of a fabless model for the fabrication of silicon photonic circuits based on existing CMOS labs and commercial foundries relying on European know-how.
The European FP6 Network of Excellence ePIXnet provides a platform to its academic and industrial partners for sharing and integrating research facilities and research know-how in the field of photonic integrated components and circuits.Research themes: Towards technologies for photonic VLSI; Nanophotonics; Advanced materials; Integrated and integratable light sources; Ultra-wide band photonic signal; processing.
The ePIXnet Nanostructuring Platform for Photonic Integration and Nanophotonics fabricates Nanophotonic devices, such as photonic crystals and photonic wires, for a range of research groups throughout the world. The efforts are primarily concentrated on Silicon on Insulator, Indium Phosphide and Gallium Arsenide materials.

Based on the success of the EuroNanoMed ERA-NET initiative (2009-2011), support to the European Nanomedecine research community is continuing. The EuroNanoMed II ERA-NET project, comprising 20 partners from 17 countries/regions, has been granted funding through the EC?s 7th Framework Programme. It will run from November 2012 to October 2016.
The integrated project PACE will explore the utilization of the simplest technically feasible elementary living units to build evolvable complex information systems. The Center will create, analyse and investigate the applications of such systems that process information by self-organization starting at molecular scales. They will explore the collective properties of artificial cells and demonstrate that they are the right material for building nanoscale robot ecologies.
EUCEMAN promotes interdisciplinary research and development as well as co-operation in designated areas of reliability of materials, components, systems, tools and techniques with a particular focus on micro and nanotechnologies, including their applications for business, science and technology, as well as everyday-life concerns (household, leisure, sports, health, security, etc.).
