Micro-Optical MEMS, micro-mirros and pico-projectors
Politecnico di Torino
Politecnico di Torino (POLITO), with over 27,000 students, is the second largest technical university in Italy. The workforce dedicated to research and teaching includes around 900 Professors, 700 PhD Students and 300 Research Assistants, covering all major areas of the engineering and architecture disciplines.
The Department of Electronics and Telecommunications of Politecnico di Torino has research interests in all ICT fields, ranging from higher-level systems (telecommunications networks, electronic systems and equipment) to the circuit and device level. It also includes related areas, such as bioengineering. The Department successful track record in research can be gauged not only by the number of scientific publications per year, but also by the amount of funding it attracts – more than 2.5 million Euros per year. Two thirds of it comes from industry and international research projects. The Department research programme has significant cooperation with small or large international companies. The MiNES (Micro&Nano Electronic Systems) Laboratory, which will participate in particular to the project, deals with the project and fabrication of Silicon based microsystems and nanosystems, technological transfer, education. The laboratory joins both technological and fundamental competences for the study and design of devices, circuits and systems for the fabrication of sensors, MEMS and MOEMS.
Main role in the project:
Polito will work the interfaces, driving circuits and characterization systems need for the technology demonstrators, in particular for the Pico-Projector and the 3D Micro laser scanner. In WP3 Polito will contribute to the development of models and simulations, following the work done in WP2.
