METALLIC AND SEMICONDUCTING NANOPARTICLE SOURCE FOR ELECTRONIC AND OPTOELECTRONIC APPLICATIONS

Objective

The proposal aims at mutual technology transfer between two academic research laboratories and an industrial partner. NTUA has experience on sensors and electronic/optoelectronic devices based on nanoparticles arrays, NCSRD has experience on the nanoscale characterization of materials and microelectronic device fabrication technologies and MANTIS Deposition Ltd has developed a nanoparticle source able to synthesize nanoparticles of extreme size uniformity. A main scientific goal of the project is the formation of 2-dimentional and 1-D configurations of nanoparticles with controlled size and density. The accomplishment of this target will enable the fabrication of nanoparticle based sensors and electronic/optoelectronic devices beyond the state-of-the-art. The academic partners will have the opportunity to advance their research in the above fields by acquiring knowledge in the nanoparticle manufacturing technique of Mantis. From this exchange of knowledge the SME will benefit from the investigation of its product applicability in these new fields. The complementarity of know-how of the partners which extends from the nanoparticles to electronic sensors and devices fabrication technologies supported by the characterization of electronic, optical and structural properties of materials used it is a solid background for the partners to further develop their research agenda through mutual transfer of technology.
