Materials Electrotechnical-, micro- and nanomaterials
Advanced materials characterisation - Laboratory
The advanced materials characterization laboratory in Oslo develops techniques and makes use of advanced experimental facilities within the national infrastructure centers NORTEM, NICE, and NORFAB. It also employs modeling frameworks utilizing the supercomputer infrastructure in SIGMA2, as well as fundamental materials competence. This combined approach allows for determination of structure, chemistry and materials response from the atomic to millimeter scale.
DipLab - Mobile short circuit laboratory
This laboratory will be used both in research and development to identify and improve manufacturing unit properties during network failures.
SINTEF Energy Research operates laboratories for high voltage, high power and climatic testing. Customers are manufacturers, suppliers and users of electric power equipment.
OXIPATH – Oxides for Piezoelectrics, Batteries and Thermoelectrics
OXIPATH is a strategic effort initiated by SINTEF Materials and Chemistry with the aim to address key technological issues related to oxide materials applied in three fast growing technology areas: piezoelectric devices, batteries and thermoelectric devices.
SiC4LED – Novel fluorescent silicon carbide growth approach for white LEDs
The main objective of the project aims to grow a new type of compound semiconductor crystal, fluorescent silicon carbide (f-SiC), by applying the liquid solution phase epitaxial (LPE) technology, and to preliminarily examine the feasibility of fabricating the monolithic white light-emitting diodes (LEDs). It is expected to save up to 20% of energy consumption for SiC growth.
SURKINOX – Designing rules for enhancing SURface KINetics in functional OXides for clean energy technologies
The project aims to develop novel approaches to design property-driven materials with nano-functionalized surfaces and nano-structured thin films as well as necessary experimental techniques to determine catalytic properties and rate determining steps in specific processes relevant for ceramic fuel cells, electrolysers and gas separation membranes.
Green light for the world’s first intelligent oil pipelines
Electronics installed in Norwegian oil pipelines have been tested both at sea and in transport vessel reeling simulations. All that now remains is to install them offshore.
Plastic solar cells see the light of day
In the future, you may be able to buy solar cells for your roof from a roll, by the metre.
