Project

ASCENT+ (https://www.ascent.network/)

Goal: ASCENT+ will enable and stimulate its user community to bridge the gap between scientific exploration and development of proof-of-concept technologies to accelerate innovation pathfinding. ASCENT+ presents a unique opportunity for Europe to regain global leadership in Nanoelelectronics at a pivotal time where traditional scaling is coming to an end.

ASCENT Provides:

Fast and easy access to the world’s most advanced CMOS technologies and infrastructure

Access to nanoscale CMOS device data, test chips and fabrication/characterisation facilities at Tyndall National Institute (Ireland), CEA-Leti (France), imec (Belgium), Fraunhofer Mikroelektronik (Germany) and INL (Portugal/Spain)

Access open to all researchers in universities, research centres, SMEs and industry

Opportunity to share best scientific and technological practices, form a knowledge–innovation hub, train new researchers and establish a nanoelectronics research network

Interface to global industrial leaders in nanoelectronics

Material development for MRAM and FRAM stacks
Today, data is the lifeblood disrupting many industries. The vast majority of this data is stored in the form of non-volatile magnetic bits in hard disk drives. This technology was developed more than half a century ago and has reached fundamental scaling limits that prevent further increases in storage capacity. New approaches are needed.
In the webinar, FRAM (Ferroelectric Random Access Memory) and MRAM (Magnetoresistive Random Access Memory) will be presented as two promising concepts for future ultra-low power memory technologies. Special attention will be paid to material development and fabrication on state-of-the-art industrial equipment for 300 mm wafers.
Speaker
Dr. Lukas Gerlich (Fraunhofer IPMS - Center Nanoelectronic Technologies)

Register now: https://lnkd.in/dEmgGRi Main speaker: Peter Knittel Fraunhofer IAF In this webinar he will introduce IAF diamond growth systems with respect to their capabilities and the resulting diamond films. An introduction to diamond growth via chemical vapour deposition will be given which includes pure and doped single crystalline films, structured overgrowth and polycrystalline diamond. In addition, he will present their diamond technology that allows accurate processing of diamond films including the formation of 3D diamond structures.

Discover the new ASCENT+ Access Programme which provides free-of-charge access to research infrastructures in the following Platform Technologies: Nano for Quantum Technologies, Disruptive Devices and Advanced Integration. Fraunhofer IAF runs several reactors for chemical vapour deposition of diamond. Homoepitaxy is carried out to obtain diamond layers with highest purity and defined dopant concentration. P-type (B-doped) and n-type (P-doped) layers are available as well as N-doping for quantum technologies with NVs. Poly- and nanocrystalline diamond is grown on wafer-scale level.
