Prospective Research (Innovative Research)


Microelectronic technology has made available to society a wide range of solutions that have marked our technological evolution. However, the technology has limitations that hamper development and force to seek new technological solutions.

The GTQ within this line addresses two main approaches, based on the tracks as More Moore (MtM) and Beyond CMOS (bCMOS), to develop technologies that extend the functional scale innovation in new materials, processes and technologies, and development of new devices. Both approaches derived from silicon technology and try to maintain the best balance between functionality and cost, the foundation of the development of microelectronics technology.

The activity in this area is highly variable, opening new fields of study / research or meeting the needs arising from the developments in the other lines.

Currently this activity is grouped into:

  • Si-based Light Emitters: materials, processes and device integration.
  • Advanced Polymer Technologies
  • Living Photonics

Other lines up joint development with other research groups are:

  • BiModal Interferometric Devices as Biosensors, Prof. L. Lechuga (NanoBiosensors and Bioanalytical Applications, nanoB2A, CIN2-CSIC, Spain)
  • Monolithically Integration of UV-Detector with CMOS Control Circuits, Prof. M. Aceves (Depto. Electrónica, INAOE, Mexic).
  • Optomechanical Waveguide and Interferometric Devices, Dra. L. Carrascosa (NanoBiosensors and Bioanalytical Applications, nanoB2A, CIN2-CSIC, Spain)
