Proto-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Hybrid Systems for Generation-Next Bionic Devices

Project description

A first step into bionic systems: electron–proton hybrid transistors

Today, due to the changes in our lifestyle and common use of new technologies, a massive proliferation of electronic devices is observed. However, this new, unprecedented phenomenon poses environmental hazards created by the ever-growing amount of toxic electronic waste. The electronics industry must urgently introduce sustainable, environmentally friendly solutions. To that end, the EU-funded PROGENY project aims to design advanced, functional protonic materials to be used in revolutionary biomimetic devices and sensors branded as proto-opto-electro-mechanical systems (POEMS). The novelty design exploits natural, efficient and intrinsically sustainable biological systems, bringing a fundamental breakthrough in device and sensor innovation. In the TRL 3-4 phase, PROGENY will deliver and demonstrate the first bionic device with gated electron–proton hybrid transistors that can host living cells.
