Research activities
In addtion to development projects for customers SINTEF participates in both EU and nationally founded projects In the field of piezoMEMS
    • PETMEM
      H2020 2015-2018
      PETMEM (Piezoelectronic Transduction Memory Device) is a European partnership amongst Universities, Research Institutions, SMEs and a large semiconductor company that will focus on the development of new materials and characterization tools to enable the fabrication of an entirely new low-voltage, memory element. Device operation at voltages an order of magnitude lower than CMOS technology
      M-era.NET 2014-2017
      ENPIEZO (Enabling Technology for High Quality piezoMEMS) is an M-era.Net supported project, which aims to develop piezoelectric-based energy-harvesting (EH) devices to provide a remote source of electricity from waste vibrations with countless applications. The ENPIEZO project is to use a lead magnesium niobate – lead titanate (PMN-PT) piezoelectric layer in order to increase the power output of the harvester.
    • SafeSens
      ENIAC, 2014-2016
    • Lab4MEMS II
      ENIAC, 2014-2016
      Lab4MEMS II focuses on Micro-Opto-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MOEMS) that merge MEMS with Micro-optics to sense or manipulate optical signals using integrated mechanical, optical, and electrical systems, while the original project maintains its emphasis on developing a pilot line for next-generation MEMS devices augmented with such advanced technologies as piezoelectric or magnetic materials and 3D packaging.
