Self-Assembled semiconductor Nanostructures for new Devices in photonics and Electronics

Self-Assembled semiconductor Nanostructures for new Devices in photonics and Electronics

Objective

The Network of Excellence is dedicated to the formation of an integrated and cohesive approach to research and knowledge in the field of Self-Assembled semiconductor Nanostructures (SAN).
These nanostructures can then be cemented in position by the deposition of further layers of the substrate material. By varying the semiconductor materialsinvolved, the growth conditions, and by vertically stacking layers of nanostructures, a rich variety of novel materials can be produced for the study of the fundamental properties of strongly confined systems, and for the development of advanced electronic and optoelectronic devices. The resources and the approach of the Network reach from the study of fundamental phenomena to their exploitation for the design of novel materials and structures for use in advanced electronic, photonic and optoelectronic devices. In particular the activities on devices are tightly integrated with European industrial partners of the Network. The Network will spread excellence outside the Network, in particular to the new member states via gateway institutes in the new member states. A measurable integration of the human resources, equipment and methods in the European research area will be achieved by the Network with a program of joint activities. The integration pertains to people, facilities, research, training and education and exploitation. In particular the Network funds will be used for supporting the exchange of personnel, joint PhD programs, increased availability, access and throughput of experimental facilities, the design, preparation and execution of joint research projects, education and training programs including workshops, schools and technical training courses, outreach to the scientific community and the general public and the exploitation of scientific and technological results together with the industrial partners.
