Scientific Methodology

The proposed training network brings together scientists from different fields (materials synthesis, processing and device fabrication, and device physics). The research programme is divided into four main tasks (materials, characterisation, devices, integration) covering the full value chain from synthesis over devices to their integration into demonstrators and modules. Outstanding characteristics of the planned activity are also the very broad materials base (including up-scaling capacities) and the very close interlocking of all partners. The project is divided into 7 work packages:

  • WP1: Materials synthesis,
  • WP2: Optoelectronic characterisation,
  • WP3: NIR optoelectronic devices,
  • WP4: System Integration,
  • WP5: Training,
  • WP6: Management, and
  • WP7: Dissemination.

Each WP is leaded and coordinated by one of the proposing partners with special knowledge and experience in the field.
