Duration: 02/00 to 05/2004.
Responsible: R. Martins, E. Fortunato
The present project is aimed at
the creation of an European Network on Amorphous-Silicon
Device Technology. The initiative has been inspired
on the exist know-how in Europe in this field and in
the need of Europe to be present in further developments
concerning the application of this technology.
of new production techniques for highly efficient polymorphous
solar cells – H-Alpha Solar”
Partners: U. Eindhoven/TUE (NL, coordinator), U. Orleans/GREMI
(FR); CNRS/PICM (FR); UNINOVA/CEMOP (PT); ATECNIC/PORTSOL
(PT); Balzers A. G./BPS (LI); Akzo Nobel Chemical b.v./ANC
Duration: 04/2000 a 08/2004.
Responsible: R. Martins
In this project, new production
technologies will be developed for the production of
highly efficient and cost effective solar cells based
on the application of the innovative polymorphous silicon
material. The material and the production processes
will be optimised by the participating research groups
and transferred to medium scale pilot lines in the manufacturing
industry. Both in-line batch processes and continuous
roll-to-roll processes will be addressed. At the end
of the project, a perspective to large-scale industrial
production at a cost lower than 1 Euro/Wp will be created.

process - LASOL”
Partners: AEG (DE, coordinator); JENOPTKIS (DE); FERBV
(DE), Fraunhoffer Inst. (DE); NMRC (IRL); TEKELEC (PT);
Duration: 09/1998 a 06/2003.
Responsible: R. Martins and F. Soares
Vision systems for 3D inspection
find application in a wide variety of industries, besides
the ones related to inspect and to control quality of
large size soldering joins, as it is the purpose of
the LASOL project.
The aim is to develop the tools of an inspection system
to provide significant increases in resolution and speed
of data capture, compared with conventional CCD camera
systems. Here, the operation principle behind the technique
is to allow that the X ray produced will impinge a centillator
(to protect operators and to allow an indirect detection
process) that will emit light which will be captured
by a detector (e.g. a photodiode connected to a switch
matrix, to provide information on the spot position
considered), as shown in the sketches below.

The aim of this network is
to establish an European road map concerning problems
related to interconnection and packaging in electronics
aiming to solve the challenging issues in terms of miniaturisation,
heat dissipation, frequency increase, functionality
integration through multiple layers, embedded components.
The network, initially structured around a few working
groups, expanded progressively under the impulse of
the members to a structured environment counting to
date 9 working groups, covering the major issues in
P&I for the European industry, most of them involved
in this network
