Electromagntetic Characterization Of NAnostructured Materials (ECONAM)

Objective

Nanostructured electromagnetic materials are rapidly maturing and become increasingly employed for design of the electronic and optical components, integrated circuits and functional devices. A broad class of applications is based upon the specialised electromagnetic materials that provide the necessary functionality for electronic devices and constitute the physical layer of the technologies dealing with electromagnetic signals. For such applications, the electromagnetic parameters of materials are of the primary concern. Characterisation and metrology of the engineered nanostructured electromagnetic media have become the critical aspects of their development and utilisation in practical applications. The main project objective of this project is to consolidate efforts and bring coordination in the European work towards development, testing, and dissemination of methods and tools for electromagnetic characterisation and metrology of nanostructured composite materials. The main novel characterisation approaches are focused on intrinsically interrelated developments and harmonisation of the material phenomenological models, standardisation of characteristic parameters and measurement techniques for evaluating the specified parameters. The main impact will be in development and dissemination of novel techniques for electromagnetic characterization of nanostructured materials and preparation of standards in the field of nanomaterials characterisation. This will complement the known techniques for characterization in terms of particle and reactivity by developing unified approaches to characterization in terms of permittivity, permeability, chirality parameter, surface impedance, grid impedance and similar.
