ABSTRACT

A French university will act as a coordinator of a European project aimed at developing new approaches for the fabrication of power devices. The consortium has identified 2 relevant calls to implement this project : LC-SC3-RES-1-2019 and LC-NMNP-32-2019. Industrial partners active in semiconductor electronics/sensor/photovoltaic (PV) are sought to complete the consortium.


FULL DESCRIPTION

The objective of the PROXY consortium is to develop a solution addressing the issue of efficient energy conversion. The consortium will develop novel approaches for the fabrication of power devices/ PV cells / sensors via the adoption of a new and environmentally friendly electronics technology based on the emerging, cost effective and earth abundant element based wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductor.

The consortium already includes academics and companies:
1. French University (Coordinator)
2. University , Germany
3. Institute - Spain
4. University - UK
5. University - Georgia
6. University, Finland
7. French SME- France

The partners already selected in the consortium are expert in raw material research, manufacturing of epiwafer, PV cells, power device, recycling, life cycle assesment, economic quantification.

During the project, the consortium plans to demonstrate
that novel methodologies and technologies for the fabrication of beyond state-of-the-art power devices /PV cells/sensors would also simultaneously offer both lower cost and higher performance.

Design issues related to green electronic devices (on the base of non toxic material) for moving toward device miniaturization, with reducing cooling requirements (water waste) will be also taken into account.

The device potential environmental impact and the potential market by designing a circular economy model will be also included in the project.

At the end of the project, the TRL 4 should be reached.

A SME and A MNE are sought to complete the consortium.

Two topics have been identified by the consortium :

LC-SC3-RES-1-2019-2020: Developing the next generation of renewable energy technologie - 2 stages - 1st deadline 16 October 2018
LC-NMBP-32-2019 : Smart materials, systems and structures for energy harvesting - 2 stages - 1st deadline 22 January 2019

Deadline for expression of interest are 15 January 2019

The project PROXY has duration of 40 months.(173 weeks)


Partner expertise sought:

- Specific area of activity of the partner: - SME interested in power device / sensors/ PV cells fabrication .The SME will act as an “end user”.

- Industrial (MNE), to integrate into the consortium an advisory or management board member, giving guidelines and promoting the circular economy model for gallium.


Advantages & innovations:

Brief description of the state of the art:
Among semiconductors, Silicon(Si) is the foundational technology against which all others are compared.

Research has approached the atomic limit of scaling for Si to reach the pinnacle of its performance and the fundamental limitations of Si performance at the device level have been identified .There still remain applications and functions that are out of reach for this material.

PROXY proposes the new generation ultra high band gap wafer growth/characterization and device fabrication.

Potential Applications of devices:
- power electronics (energy transmition, conversion, electrical vehicles, etc)
- high-temperature signal processing
- harsh environment electronics = aeronautic, automotive, industry, remote location and space with respect to harsh-environment operation
- wireless communication devices/circuits, chemical sensing = IoT
- PV cells

Programme - Call:

Evaluation scheme: Two-stage submission scheme: a short proposal for the first stage followed by full proposal for the second stage, if it passes the first-stage evaluation.

Acronym: Gallium oxide based Oxytronics - PROXY
