SITEX expertise on design and engineering, prototyping and microproduction for sensors and microsystems by new materials applications including nanostructured as well sensing devices and microsystems integration /packaging technologies confirmed and validated by successful participation as partner, coordinator a/o end user under (i) R&D national programs MATNANTECH (New materials, micro and nanotechnologies), CEEX (Research of Excellence), PNII Partnership / Innovation (2007-2013). INVENT and (ii) R&D in international programs like FP5 / INCO Copernicus, Craft, NEXUS (European Microsystems Network) NoE and FP6 / 4M NoE (Multi-materials micro manufacture), EuroNanoMed, Eurostars and Marie Curie-IPMMAN, Under FP7 program had already successfully closed projects like MEMSCON, COMPOLIGHT, MOSYCOUSIS, INSTANT and SENSGLASS / MNT-ERA-NET, with 3 new projects ongoing like MAGPHOGLAS/ M-ERA NET, TROPSENSE/RISE-H2020/2015 and NANOGENTOOLS RISE-H2020/2016 and tBD RISE-H2020/2017 as well as OLIDIGRAPH/MANUNET/2017.
SITEX is member of more specialised european platforms like Nanomedicine, EPoSS-The European Technology Platform on Smart Systems Integration, Nanofutures, Manufuture, CLINAM, Photonics 21, RMP Rapid manufacturing platform, OE-L(Organic Electronics Ass.), and specialised associations EuMA and 4M MultiMaterials MicroManufacture, SPIE and SEMI USA, AMA / German Ass for Sensors Technology, GUS e.V (German Ass for Environmental Simulation) and ICCCS (International Confederation of Contamination Control Societies).
The present proposal is a great interest for SITEX45 due to innovative applications development of photonic sensing devices and actuators as well as specialized devices optical communications networks with reconfigurable properties like multiplexer/splitter/selector and spectrometry application. The PMP-PZL materials will allow a new challenging field of application for nano-scale photonic devices development with great potential of piezo-photonics applicability for environment, biomedical and biophotonics, optical telecommunications networks.
