Research partnerships between Chalmers and external organizations allow for the closest collaboration and the greatest potential innovation and value. Research projects are typically long term with the aim of exploring and developing new technologies. Cleanroom processing in combination with strong theoretical support in close cooperation with the partner organization results in breakthrough technologies. Research groups at Chalmers have unique expertise in the physics & technology of materials, devices, and circuits for micro and nano systems. Detailed information on the research carried out at MC2 can be found in the department’s Annual Report.
Philips Semiconductor is one example of an organization which has entered a research partnership with Chalmers. Philips transferred its SiC process research from its own research centre to the Microwave Electronics Laboratory at Chalmers to investigate the potential of SiC MOSFETs for RF applications. This collaboration has resulted in MC2 producing MOSFETs with world record mobility in the inversion channel. The project was recently extended to investigate the manufacturability of these devices while further developing the technology.
