Micromachined terahertz systems -a new heterogeneous integration platform enabling the commercialization of the THz frequency spectrum

Deliverables

Final Evaluation of the Telecom Prototype

This deliverable is the final test report which will contain test results and the ultimate conclusions from the assessment on the proposed integrated microsystem platform.

Report on Overall MMIC Concept and Intra-Platform Interfaces

Report summarizing the overall MMIC concept, including the basic architecture of the generic circuits composing the multifunction receive/transmit MMIC, and including the concept of non-galvanic, low-loss, direct near-field coupling between the MMIC and the micromachined THz integration platform.

Risk Assessment Plan

The Risk Assessment Plan will include a Critical Path Analysis (CPA) of the main project activities, identifying risk points, and procedures to deal with them. This deliverable is marked with nature “O” (OTHER) and will be accompanied by a small written report outlining its structure and purposes in order to justify the achievement of this deliverable.

Internal and External IT Communication Infrastructure and Project Website

"The external IT communication infrastructure constitutes a guideline for communication of the M3TERA project to external target groups including conferences, marketing measures and communication channels. Furthermore this deliverable constitutes the launch of the internal M3TERA communication infrastructure including the establishment of mailing lists or a subversion server, and the M3TERA website. Deliverables marked with nature ""DEC"" will be accompanied by a small written report outlining its structure and purpose in order to justify the achievement of the deliverable."

Project Quality Plan

"The project quality plan (the project handbook) constitutes a set of project templates, explanations on the project management process, review process, quality checks, meeting organisation, which is communicated to all partners. Deliverables marked with nature ""OTHER"" will be accompanied by a small written report outlining its structure and purpose in order to justify the achievement of the deliverable."

Prototype of Fabricated and Characterized Sensor Interface

"Prototype of near-field millimeter-wave sensor interface, characterization and measurement report. Fabrication happens in WP2, as it is integrated in the microsystem platform. Deliverables marked with nature ""DEM"" will be accompanied by a small written report outlining its structure and purpose in order to justify the achievement of the deliverable."

THz Microsystem Prototypes for Telecom and THz Sensor Prototype

"Delivered, complete THz microsystems including the microsystem platform with integrated MEMS-tuneable components and sensor/antenna interfaces, and heterogeneously integrated MMIC active circuits (from WP3, D3.5). Implementations for the telecom proof-of-concept prototype (WP5) and the sensor prototype (WP6) will be delivered. Deliverables marked with nature ""DEM"" will be accompanied by a small written report outlining its structure and purpose in order to justify the achievement of the deliverable."

Data Management Plan (DMP)

As M3TERA is taking part in the Pilot on Open Research Data a first version of the DMP as an early deliverable will be provided within the first six months of the project. The purpose of the DMP is to provide an analysis of the main elements of the data management policy that will be used by the applications with regard to all the datasets that will be generated by the project. The DMP is not a fixed document, but evolves during the lifespan of the project. More developed versions of the plan can therefore be included as additional deliverables at later stages. According to the Guidelines on Data Management in Horizon 2020, the DMP should address data set reference and name, data set description, standards and metadata, data sharing and archiving and preservation (including storage and backup) on a dataset by dataset basis and should reflect the current status of reflection within the consortium about the data that will be produced.
