Role in the Project
In the project SINTEF will take part both in JRA and CSA activities. In the Joint Research Activities, the main contributions of SINTEF will be to supply reference and substrate wafers.
Previous experience: SINTEF Materials and Chemistry have a crystallisation lab that is unique among European research facilities. This will allow the custom-growth of crystals to the correct specifications necessary in this project. An industrial scale wafer saw is also available to the project.
