Centre of Competence for Nanotechnology and Photonics (NanoP)

The interdisciplinary Centre of Competence for Nanotechnology and Photonics (NanoP) comprises electrotechnical research across the entire range from nano-electronics through to aerospace electronics and brings together expertise from the Departments of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology (EI), Information Technology-Electrical Engineering-Mechatronics (IEM) and Mechanical Engineering and Energy Technology (ME). The research work of all members of the NanoP centre of competence focuses on developing and applying simulations, modelling, designs and tests.

In addition to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) certification of aerospace electronics, NanoP is at the cutting edge of advances in the area of compact modelling of innovative integrated components and in linking neuromorphic computing with component simulation, among other areas.
