  Start up projects that gave rise to the appearance of CEMOP
The Center (CEMOP) in association with countless national and international institutions, is actively involved in the most advanced R&D projects within the fields of microelectronics and optoelectronics. Feel free to join us in these discoveries.
Following are just some of our most recent projects of research in the international panorama. For the full list of all of our research and development projects, please go to this section of already concluded projects.

“Development of organic and inorganic flexible optoelectronic devices”
CAPES/GRICES (2003/2007).
Responsible: E. Fortunato.

This project aims the production and study of hybrid organic and inorganic flexible optoelectonic devices such as OLED’s, thin film transistors and photodiodes for applications such as in displays, sensors for biological and food control systems, etc.


“Materials Engineering and Physics of Quasimorphous Silicon Thin Films for its Application in Large Area Electronics”
Fundação Luso Americana para o Desenvolvimento, FLAD and U.S.A. National Science Foundation(project 85/02, 2002/2004).
Partners: CEMOP/ UNINOVA, CENIMAT (Portugal), Physics Department of Syracuse University (USA).
Responsible: R. Martins and I. Ferreira

The subject matter of this project is in multidisciplinary area, involving elements of Physics, Chemistry, Chemical Engineering and Materials Science, specifically it is concerned with synthesis and understanding of structural-electronic properties correlation and metastable behaviour of nanostructured silicon thin-film (quasimorphous, qm-Si:H), a new class of non-crystalline silicon-based thin-film semiconductor aiming to improve the know-how about its properties and to exploit its field of applications.


“European Network on Amorphous-Silicon Device Technology-ASINET”
Brite-EuRam, GTC1-2000-28040 (2000/2004).
Partners: CIEMAT (ES), coordinator; ENEA (IT); U. Cranfield (UK); Pilkington (UK); U. Barcelona (ES); CNRS/PICM (FR); Akzo Nobel b.v./ANC (NL); CNR (IT); U. Stuttgart (DE); IST (PT); LAMEL (IT); U. Torino (IT); U. Patras (GR); U. Delft/TUE (NL); UNINOVA/CEMOP (PT); U. Cambridge (UK); U. Utrecht (NL); U. Roma (IT); TNO (NL).
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.

We are also currently involved in several national projects. Following are just some of the latest projects we are participating. For a full listing of all of our past projects, please go to this section of already concluded projects.

“Optical inspection cameras using 1024 arrays of linear psd-SENSIT”
POE, B3, 3.1 (2002/2005), ref. 03/00197.
Duration: 3 years
Partners: UNINOVA/CEMOP, CENIMAT, Tekelec.
Responsible: R. Martins (coordinator)

The aim of this project is to develop an optical inspection camera able to perform 3-D pattern recognition on real time based on laser triangulation and analogue detection principles.


“Development of an IR detector based on c-Si-IRS”
POE, B3, 3.1 (2002/2005), ref. 03/00198.
Duration: 3 years
Responsible: E. Fortunato (coordinator)

The aim of this project is to develop IR detectors based on c-Si able to be integrated in surveillance system at a very low cost. Apart from that, it is also intention to develop the processes that allow CEMOP to satisfy SME requirements concerning the production of hybrid electronics, based on c-Si technologies for electronic and other microelectronic applications.


“Solid State Time Meters - METES”
POSI/6250- Invest. In consortium 2002/2005.
Partners: Tekelec, CENIMAT and UNINOVA/CEMOP.
Duration: 3 years
Responsible: E. Fortunato (coordinator).

This project aims to develop a solid-state timer able to monitor the lifetime of a device or equipment with which it is connected. The device to be developed is based in the detection and accumulation charge principle on structures, able to satisfy the following requirements: ecological compatible and measurements vibration’s and temperature independent (solid state); to allow the visualization of the lifetime of the device with and without energy applied; able to restore the initial state; precision better than 5% over the full scale of the device; to have an alarm indicating the end of life; costs below 2 Euros.
