HAMLET is a Research and Innovation Action program, funded by the European Commission under the Horizon2020 program. The aim is to extend the capabilities of two existing photonic platforms, develop an advanced hybrid integration engine and provide a new photonic platform tailored to needs of modern Microwave Photonics applications and especially the upcoming 5G wireless technology. Solmates role is to develops piezo actuated strain optical modulators.

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 (power is reduced two orders) while achieving 10GHz operating speed is targeted. Within this project Solmates’ focus is on the integration of epitaxial “beyond CMOS” materials on silicon wafers.

COMPASS & RADAR
Competitive passivating contact technology for PV (COMPASS). In order to maintain a competitive edge in Dutch solar cell knowhow and equipment manufacturing, the goal of the COMPASS project is to explore, combine, and demonstrate high-performance and manufacturability of such novel, high-potential passivating contact materials that are being developed in the Netherlands.
Transparent passivating contact design for advanced solar cells(RADAR). Development of highly transparent carrier-selective, passivating contacts, based on extrinsically doped metal oxides.
Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland has granted a subsidy under the program “iDEEGO, Zonnestroomtechnologie”.
LAB FAB for smart sensors and actuators MEMS is a R&D that aims to establish a European Pilot Line for key enabling technologies on advanced piezoelectric and magnetic materials, including advanced 3D Packaging technologies to meet the ever evolving market needs.This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under Grant Agreement no. 325622.
