Main achievements of SITOGA project are presented in the post-ECOC workshop “Network Systems and Devices for IoT Era”

Jean Fompeyrine from IBM presented the main achievements on the BTO integration on the SiGe platform during the post-ECOC workshop “Network Systems and Devices for IoT Era” that was held on September 2016 in Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany). The purpose of the workshop is to stimulate interaction between industry and research in areas that typically show little overlap but where a more in-depth discussion of the needs of industry might foster new technological developments that would be beneficial for established or anticipated exploitation routes. The workshop had a strong representation of industries with speakers from NTT, ADVA, AIST, KDDI and Sicoya.

SITOGA partners CNRS and IBM organize a symposium on “Multifunctional binary and complex oxides films and nanostructures for nanoelectronics and energy applications - II” in the E-MRS Spring Meeting

Catherine Dubourdieu from CNRS-INL and Chiara Marchiori from IBM, organized a symposium on “Multifunctional binary and complex oxides films and nanostructures for nanoelectronics and energy applications - II” in the E-MRS Spring Meeting, which was held on May 2015 in Lille, France. The symposium was aimed at bringing together and bridging scientists working on different areas of synthesis, structural/physical characterization and integration of functional metal oxides for application in information and energy technologies.

The Universitat Politècnica de Valencia coordinates a European project that will improve data communications performance

The Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), through the Nanophotonics Technology Center, leads SITOGA, an ambitious European research project that aims to develop new technology which will, among other advantages, contribute to improve Internet data rates. The key is the use of two new materials -barium titanate and vanadium oxide- to develop electro-optic devices, such as switches and modulators, key building blocks in communication systems.
