MicrOwave Spintronics as an AlternatIve Path to Components and Systems for Telecommunications, Storage and Security Applications

Descripción del proyecto


Very advanced nanoelectronic components: design, engineering, technology and manufacturability
Process (mix, modulate, synchronise) and detect microwave frequencies based on innovative spin transfer devices.

The overarching objective of the MOSAIC project is to bring the device level knowledge acquired in the past years by the partners towards systems as a first crucial step towards industrialization, warranting the leading position not only of European research but also of European industry in microwave spintronics. Innovative components and systems based on nano-engineered semiconductor, magnetic or insulating materials will be the driving force for the micro- and nanoelectronics industry in the 21st century. For telecommunications systems, but also for data storage and automation, control and security applications, alternative More than Moore paths to systems are provided by nano-scale microwave spintronics components due to firstly their unique spin polarized transport properties that appear only at nanoscale dimensions (<100nm lateral, and 2-5 nm vertical), secondly their unique (multifunctional) microwave properties including signal generation, processing and detection and thirdly their compatibility with CMOS technology. Going beyond previous fundamental research on spintronics devices, the MOSAIC project will target technological breakthroughs not only to generate, but also to process (mix, modulate, synchronise) and to detect microwave frequencies. Based on innovative spin transfer devices, four discrete systems will be developed that address bottlenecks of current technologies. These are a) Wireless Telecommunications 1: Ultrawideband frequency synthesis provided by spintronics microwave components with novel circuit design on CMOS for realization of an adapted phase locked loop; b) Wireless Telecommunications 2: Ultrafast frequency detection using frequency discriminating level detection; c) Data storage: Novel dynamic readout schemes for detecting frequency shifts implemented for realization of high data rate read heads; and d) Automation control & security: Broad bandwidth, high slew rate proximity sensor based on frequency generation and modulation capabilities.
