Stay connected with ZeroAMP

Welcome to August in ZeroAMP!

The ZeroAMP consortium is glad to welcome and introduce the newest team member, August Djuphammar!

August has a recent master´s degree in nanotechnology from Chalmers University of Technology (Gothenburg, SE) and he will now pursue a PhD under the supervision of Frank Niklaus at KTH (Stockholm, SE).

In ZeroAMP, August will contribute to the nanofabrication of the NEM switches developed in the project.

ZeroAMP at IEEE MEMS 2023 Conference

Elliott Worsey, PhD student in the UNIVBRIS team led by Dinesh Pamunuwa, presented a poster covering all MEM non-volatile memory cell at IEEE MEMS 2023 Conference held in Munich on 15-19 January 2023. This is a key cell in the ZeroAMP standard cell library used for building mechanical computational structures.

The results presented in the poster are also included in the following conference proceedings paper:

E. Worsey, M. Kulsreshath, Q. Tang, and D. Pamunuwa, “Fully microelectromechanical non-volatile memory cell,” in Proc. IEEE MEMS Conference (in press), Jan. 2023.

ZeroAMP CM7 meeting

Last week, the ZeroAMP consortium gladly participated to its seventh consortium meeting "CM7" in Aachen, Germany.

Over these two days meeting hosted by AMO, we had the pleasure to visit the beautiful city center of Aachen and the cleanroom at AMO - in addition to intensive and fruitful discussion about the project progress and planning of the next steps for the last 18 months of ZeroAMP!

We are looking forward to the next meeting CM8, which will be held in Stockholm in Spring 2023!

ZeroAMP vacancy: post-doc position still open

The University of Bristol, one of the ZeroAMP partners, is seeking a Research Associate in Nanoelectromechanical Systems to be a member of the Microelectronics Group headed by Dr. Dinesh Pamunuwa.

The successful candidate will be involved in the ZeroAMP project by carrying out micro and nanofabrication tasks in the cleanroom using widely used tools and processes, incl. photo and electron beam lithography and thin film deposition and etch among others.

The closing date for application has been extended until 22 January 2023.

New conference paper just released by KTH

The KTH team was nicely represented by Gaehun Jo, PhD student involved in ZeroAMP, at the International Conference on Wafer Bonding – WaferBond’22 held in October 2022.

They have just published the conference paper which describes a new process developed to achieve wafer-level hermetic sealing of silicon (Si) photonic micro-electromechanical system (MEMS) inside cavities with ultra-thin Si caps. This novel packaging solution, which has been developed in synergies with other EU-funded projects, is a promising and versatile approach for novel integrated MEMS applications, such as integrated optical MEMS phase shifters, tunable couplers and switches.

The conference paper is available in open access, for download here.
