Metallic and semi-conducting nano-particle source for electronic and opto-electronic applications

Objective

This ToK-IAP proposal aims at mutual technology transfer between two academic research laboratories and an industrial partner. NTUA and CEMES/CNRS have experience on the use of nanoparticles electronic memories and optoelectronic applications and MANTIS De position Ltd who 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 layer of nanoparticles with controlled size and density. The accomplishment of this target will enable the fabrication of nanocrystal memories and light emitting 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 complementarities of know-how of the partners which extends from the nanoparticle fabrication technology to device fabrication and characterization of electronic, optical and materials properties it is a solid background for the partners to develop this research capacity through mutual transfer of technology.
