EUROPEAN UNION PROJECTS

DEEPEN logo tiberlab is a partner of European Union 7th Framework Program (EU FP7) NMP Project DEEPEN: "From atom-to-Device Explicit simulation Environment for Photonics and Electronics Nanostructures"
(from January 2014 to the end of 2016).

DEEPEN will develop an integrated open source multiscale simulation environment, targeted at problems common to future nanoscale electronic and photonic devices. The nanoscale models to be developed address the challenging problem not just of predicting quantitatively electronic bands and quantum phenomena at the nanoscale, but also of linking these critical properties to overall device behavior.
DEEPEN builds on Tyndall and ETHZ expertise in material and device properties, with experimental input from PDI also critical for validation of the multiscale models developed. Industry partners include tiberlab, which will deal with the implementation of the multiscale software framework, a leading TCAD simulation provider (Synopsys) and an industrial end-user (Osram) which will provide experimental validation and test the simulation environment for device design and investigation.

FINAL DEEPEN PRESS RELEASE

The DEEPEN project is driving forward our capability for accurate and reliable device modelling and design, through collaboration and extensive research in modeling and computation methods for semiconductors.
The new tools developed in DEEPEN are finding direct commercial application in the future modelling tools of the project software partners, Synopsys and tiberlab.
tiberlab are hosting the open source multiscale software developed in DEEPEN.

We have been looking in DEEPEN at specific device parts at atomistic level, generating multiscale simulations that link the atomistic behavior to the overall device performance, and ultimately creating new open source interfaces for developing products for the future. Within 3 years, we have advanced our knowledge significantly and the DEEPEN project has had global impact, bringing together leading minds from academia and industry to generate new solutions to our current and future issues.

Prof. O’Reilly, DEEPEN project lead


DEEPEN has been of critical value to us. We prize the opportunity that it has given us to build and re-inforce our device simulation capabilities, of benefit not just for our products but also for the wider community through the open-source interfaces that we have developed.

DESTINY
EUROPEAN UNION PROJECTS

DESTINY logo tiberlab is an associated partner in FP7 Marie Curie initial training network (ITN) project
DESTINY: "DyE SensiTIzed solar cells with eNhanced stabilitY".

The DESTINY Marie Curie initial training network will tackle major challenges in the development of stable dye-sensitized solar cells, DSCs. DSCs offer exciting possibilities for applications in building integrated photovoltaics and consumer electronics. Eleven internationally leading European research groups from six countries (including Oxford Photovoltaics, 3GSolar, Dyesol UK) have joined forces as full participants with a commercial associated partner (tiberlab), combining expertise in synthetic chemistry, spectroscopy, nanoscale physics and device engineering.
Destiny runs from 1 November 2012 to 31 October 2016.

 

 
OTHER FP7 PROJECTS
EUROPEAN UNION PROJECTS

tiberCAD is the simulation tool chosen for the modelling tasks in the following EU FP7 Projects.

 

SMASH: Smart nanostructured semiconductors for energy-saving light solutions

website: cordis.europa.eu/result/rcn/55211_en.html
years: 2009 - 2012

Aim: to bring together complementary expertise across Europe to establish disruptive material technologies and processes based on nanostructured compound semiconductors to realise the key market drivers for the broad penetration of Light emitting diodes (LED)s into the general lighting market: high efficiency and low cost.

The overall goal of SMASH has been to establish new material solutions and process technologies based on nanostructured gallium nitride based semiconductors, for low-cost, power-efficient light sources for the general lighting market.

 

NEWLED: Nanostructured EfficientWhite LEDs

newled project logo

website: www.newled-fp7.eu
years: 2013 - ongoing

NEWLED will develop high efficiency and high brightness monolithic and hybrid all-semiconductor WHITE light-emitting GaN-based diodes.

Power losses due to phosphor conversion and the problem of different ageing rates of the GaN LED pump will be eliminated by the development of phosphor free structures with increased brightness (power emitted per surface per angle).
