TherMat addresses the major challenge facing the electronics industry today of improving reliability by cost-effective control of thermo-mechanical stress within devices and assemblies. The use of currently available materials results in significant assembly and functional limitations to achieve reliable products. New controlled thermal expansion materials for use as thermal heat-sinks are urgently needed by industry.
The purpose of this project is to ease this thermal problem by developing a clean, low cost and easy to use process for metallic coating of micronic and sub-micronic particles. Societal impacts resulting from this development will beimproved European competitiveness. In addition, a general societal impact via the dissemination of technical skills will reinforce the skills and knowledge base of Europe's materials science.
