Project: Advanced 3D chemical metrology for innovative technologies

Consumer demand for faster, smarter and cheaper technologies is driving innovation in high value-added manufacturing. To satisfy these demands, industry is increasingly developing solutions based on 3D architectures, 3D printing and a rapidly expanding library of complex innovative materials. These techniques can create severe measurement difficulties such as the characterisation of the interface between the organic and inorganic materials used in the semiconductor industry. There is therefore an urgent need for beyond state-of-the-art measurement capabilities to allow exploitation of innovative complex materials. This project will develop advanced measurement techniques for 3D-resolved chemical composition and interfacial material properties providing industry with trusted measurement capability and standardisation techniques. This will support the development of new, innovative products, enhancing the competitiveness of European industry.
