Hybrid Optomechanical Technologies

We are now part of a joint academic – industry consortium to work on hybrid optomechanical technologies (HOT).

HOT is a Horizon 2020 network bringing together 13 European universities and 4 companies (IBM, STMicroelectronics, Hitachi, Thales) to lay the foundations for a new generation of nanoscale devices. A particular focus will be on high efficiency electro-optomechanical systems that bridge microwave and photonic energy scales using mechanical transduction.

The European Union funds HOT with 10M as part of the Horizon 2020 initiative FET Proactive.
