Oxide Materiale Towards a Matured Post-Silicon Electronics Era



NMP-2009-2.2-1: Oxide materials for electronics applications

Starting date: 1/10/2010

Duration: 48 months

Orama is on the development of new high performance multifunctional oxide based electronic materials, processable at low temperatures, including flexible substrates that have the potential to catapult the electronics industry into a new era of growth. Orama will develop, analyze and utilize these new materials and techniques to investigate into device concepts highlighting the potential of oxides as electronic materials in the automotive industry – a highly competitive environment being of high importance for Europe’s industry with challenging demands on information, sensor and resource efficient energy technology to provide sustainable mobility for the European society. It will achieve this by addressing the four key elements being essential for building up the new era of oxide based electronic industry: 1st principle material modelling, synthesis of new materials, development of low temperature and damage free deposition and patterning techniques and novel characterization methods.
