End Date: 30-06-2020


'SUMCASTEC explores radically new approach for cancer stem cells (CSCs) real time isolation (i.e. within minutes vs current 40 days) and neutralization. A novel micro-optofluidic lab-on-chip (LOC) platform will be developed through a joint and iterative effort by biologists, clinicians and engineers. For the first time, a single LOC will be capable of delivering ultra-wide broadband radiation to c...
ChipScope
Overcoming the Limits of Diffraction with Superresolution Lighting on a Chip

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2020


ChipScope will revolutionize optical microscopes with super-resolution capabilities, making them chip-sized, convenient, affordable and ubiquitously available, not only for laboratories working in manifold research fields, but also in everyday life. During the project, very small LEDs of 50 nm (this is 1000 times smaller than the diameter of a human hair) will be developed and used as light source...

End Date: 30-06-2020


'The proposal PHASE-CHANGE SWITCH addresses the need for combined energy efficiency and extended functionality with the engineering of new classes of solid-state Beyond CMOS switches exploiting the abrupt phase-change (Metal-Insulator-Transition - MIT) in materials and at temperatures that make them interesting for electronic circuits and systems by their performance, energy efficiency and scalabi...
AMADEUS
Next GenerAtion MateriAls and Solid State DevicEs for Ultra High Temperature Energy Storage and Conversion

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2019


This project will investigate the next generation of materials and devices for latent heat thermal energy storage (LHTES) at ultra-high temperatures of up to 2000�C, which are well beyond today's maximum operation temperatures of ~1000�C. We will synthetize new phase change materials (PCMs) with latent heat in the range of 2-4 MJ/kg (an order of magnitude greater than that of typical salt-base...

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 31-12-2020


TISuMR will provide a novel platform to study tissues as biological systems, while providing unprecedented insight into their inner workings. It proposes the development of a groundbreaking technology platform that, for the first time, integrates nuclear magnetic resonance metabolomics and micro-imaging with microfluidic perfusion tissue slice culture. This will revolutionise life science researc...
VISORSURF
VisorSurf - A Hardware Platform for Software-driven Functional Metasurfaces

Start Date: 01-01-2017

End Date: 30-06-2020


VISORSURF's main objective is the development of a hardware platform, the HyperSurface, whose electromagnetic behavior can be defined programmatically. The key-enablers are the metasurfaces, artificial materials whose electromagnetic properties depend on their internal structure. HyperSurfaces merge metamaterials with a network of miniaturized, custom electronic controllers, the nanonetwork. The n...
