CORNET H2020 Project

cornet

CORNET is an ambitious project submitted to the H2020 Call NMBP-07-2017, that will develop a unique EU Open Innovation Environment (OIE) covering the triangle of manufacturing, modelling and experimentation in order to optimize the Organic/Large Area Electronic (OE) materials, materials' behaviour and nano-devices (OPVs, PPVs, OLEDs) manufacturing processes.

This will be achieved by linking the nanostructure features with the macroscopic functionality through multiscale (nano to macro) characterization and modelling. This will strongly impact the fast and reliable development of new materials, devices and will enable control of the related production processes (R2R printing and gas transport (OVPD)) to fabricate tailored OE devices and systems to demonstrate to industrial applications (e.g. automotive, greenhouses).

CORNET will develop an OIE Platform and a sustainable Database for documentation of citable & industrially accepted protocols for material & device characterization, modelling and manufacturing and will establish strong links and cooperations with existing EU clusters (as EMMC, EMCC, EPPN), industrial associations, EU networks to increase the speed of OE materials/device development and industry uptake, maximize the acceptance of the OIE and Database and push-through standards for adoption by industry worldwide.

Cutting Edge Nano-Materials

cen mat logo
Cutting Edge Nano-Materials (CEN-Mat) is a spin-off from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) delivering highly specialized and custom tailored Nano-Materials (NMs).

Although NMs are pretty small and invisible to the human eye many NMs are engineered and placed in our everyday products to enhance their properties. NMs can be found in cosmetics such as face and body lotions, in food and its packaging, in everyday technologies such as smartphones and cars or in medical products such as in contrast agents for the magnetic resonance imaging. The importance of such nano-enabled products to the global economy can be realized when looking at the global revenue growth in the last years from $731 billion in 2012 to $4.4 trillion until today (2018). Yet, using NMs in order to benefit a product through their inherent functionality one needs to functionalize these with respect to the desired properties of the final product and integrate these efficiently and smart into the technology.

This is where the problem starts: NMs currently available on the market are not customized to the customer's needs, thus leaving potential users of NMs representing various industry branches unserved. Additionally the customer is often left alone with the raw NM without being offered a solution for the integration of these into their technology.

To bridge this gap in the value chain CEN-Mat is pursuing a different approach overcoming the massive disadvantages of standard products and services. CEN-Mats approach is based on an adaptive and up-scalable synthesis route delivering custom tailored and highly specialized NM serving the needs of each and every customer individually plus offering solutions on the NMs integration.

These services are especially needed for innovative products and for upcoming technologies developed by R&D focused companies. These companies are unable to approach global players for their material requirement due to the limited volume orders as well as the very specialized material specifications. Thus these companies as well as research institutes and universities will be the primary customers of CEN-Mat taking full advantage of the extensive experience in NM synthesis, the fairly flexible production volumes as well as the consultation around NMs.

HZB - RESEARCH FOR SUSTAINABLE ENERGY

THE SOLUTIONS WE NEED FOR THE ENERGY TRANSITION ARE NOT IN THE STARS, THEY ARE IN OUR OWN HANDS.

A secure and sustainable supply of energy is one of the greatest challenges for society. The mission of the HZB is to understand, improve, and develop new energy materials. We are able to bring the most modern infrastructure and instruments to bear on this research, in particular with the BESSY II electron storage ring, which is a particle accelerator that delivers synchrotron radiation in the soft X-ray and VUV regions.

At the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB), we conduct research on complex systems of materials that contributes to dealing with challenges such as the energy transition. The HZB research portfolio includes solar cells, solar fuels, thermoelectrics, and materials for new, energy-efficient information technologies (spintronics) or electrochemical energy storage. Research on these energy materials is closely connected with the operation and advanced development of the BESSY II photon source. And our research approach always concentrates on thin-film technologies.

We work together with specialists in energy materials research and accelerator development from the world over. About 2,000 scientists annually from research institutions throughout the world come as guest researchers to conduct their experiments at the BESSY II electron storage ring, with many of them making return visits. Our CoreLabs as well as instrument time on the BER II neutron source can also be booked by external scientists.

Siddarmark LLC

siddarmark logo

Siddarmark, LLC was established in 2016 to commercialize nano carbon technology along with the regional development program on nano carbon in a prefecture in Japan.

Our Sugikuro® is made of vertically-aligned double-walled CNT array without metal residue. Since the yarn consists of pure homogeneous CNTs, various applications are realized. Also as the yarn can be woven into commercial polymer yarns as ribbon tape. Thus for the first time globally, we offer high-speed motion and tactile sensors that are applied to VR interface between human and machine, robot motion sensing, and heartbeat sensors like Band-Aid. Also, The electrical copper-plated yarn is developed, which exhibits 50% and less density than metal wire, thereby making it the lighter than the copper wire that us used for harness and mesh-shield cables.

CNT resin composite, meanwhile, which we have also developed, can achieve homogeneous distribution of CNTs in resin matrix. And, our CNT aqueous ink can be used for flat surface heaters. One type of the heaters is transparent, applicable for traffic signal covers to protect traffic lights from snow and ice storms—all powered by batteries. Carbon Fiber Glued Press® or CFGP® is developed using the CNT knowledge. CFGP can be manufactured by machine press with thermoplastic resin glue to reduce the processing time and cost dramatically. Since CFGP has not brittle at all, it can be used for police or military armor and auto bodies.

visorsurf logo
VISORSURF: A Hardware Platform for Software-driven Functional Metasurfaces. A project to produce materials with software-programmable electromagnetic behavior.

What if the laws of electromagnetism could be customized, rather than being simply adhered to? VISORSURF is producing a first-of-its kind material, the HyperSurface, which can sense electromagnetic waves impinging upon it and alter them in ways dictated by software. Parametric wave steering, absorbing, filtering and polarizing electomagnetic radiation through the concept of a hypersurface – a combination of properly-designed metasurfaces and novel electronic nano-controllers.
