Acronym:
ORAMA
Title:
Oxide Materials Towards a Matured Post-silicon Electronics Era
Duration:
01/10/2010 to 30/09/2014
Abstract / short description:
Orama presents a holistic approach to model, synthesize, characterize and certify oxides for electronic applications to overcome the limits of silicon based electronics and to catapult the electronics industry into a new era of growth. It aims towards new classes of materials, the p- and n-type Active Semiconductor Oxides (ASO), passive n-type amorphous Transparent Conducting Oxides (a-TCOs) and p-n type junctions based on the above. These materials will be certified for device concepts highlighting the potential of oxides as electronic materials in the automotive industry. This is a highly competitive environment of high importance for Europe’s economy and with challenging demands on information technology such as sensors, displays and energy sources to provide sustainable mobility for the European society.

Orama will develop, analyze and utilize new materials and techniques to investigate into device concepts highlighting the potential of oxides as electronic materials in the automotive industry – a highly competitive environment being of high importance for Europe’s industry with challenging demands on information, sensor and resource efficient energy technology to provide sustainable mobility for the European society.

It will achieve this by addressing the four key elements being essential for building up the new era of oxide based electronic industry:

1st principle material modeling
synthesis of new materials
development of low temperature and damage free deposition and patterning techniques
novel characterization methods
Keywords:
oxide materials
indium-free materials
p-type TCO
higher TFT mobility
