Final Report - NANOTRANSDUCER (Modeling and Design of Thin Film Waveguides Terminated with Nano-optical Transducers)

Project ID: 203690
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


This is the final report of the NANOTRANSDUCER project, which is funded under the European Commission (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project analysed and designed thin-film structures which can overcome the problems in emerging nanotechnology applications, such as high-density data storage, the large body mass systems' design, high cost, and manufacturing difficulties. The project developed thin-film waveguide light-focusing devices, in addition to thermal models to address heating concerns for utilisation in high-technology applications. Various parameters regarding the radiative heat transfer in near-field optical problems were investigated.

The realisation of the devices designed in the NANOTRNSDUCER project can address technological difficulties such as the major slowdown in the pace of areal density of hard disk drives. Their development will support information-technology-based economical growth throughout Europe and contribute to European excellence through better computers and electronic consumer products.
