MMAMA Description:
The aim of this project  is to accelerate the development of high efficiency cells and to have measures to predict performances in early stages of prototype production. Where process monitoring of materials with nanostructures is necessary, a dielectric resonator is used to translate insights from scanning microwave microscope measurements to fabrication environments. Such dielectric resonators could be directly integrated in production lines for monitoring thin film deposition processes. An open innovation environment will make the uptake of the results easier for European industry.
A database containing exemplary measurement datasets of scanning microwave microscopes will be available in calibrated and raw versions. Simulation results of tip-semiconductor interactions will be made available on the EMMC Modeling Market Place.
The main objectives of MMAMA project are:
Development of Scanning Microwave Microscopy (SMM) technology towards high performance including spatial electrical resolution, bandwidth (frequency range), and different forms of microwave probes.
Extending measurements capabilities of SMM including sample size, temperature and environmental. stability, and development for new calibration routines.
Establishing electromagnetic 3D models and software modules for advanced materials including modelling platform.
Validation of the high frequency characterisation technology through the fabrication and the characterisation of reference materials and structures.
Demonstration of multi-scale microwave imaging technologies at pilot scale for in-line and off-line production.
Development of standard operating procedures and implementation of open access environment.
QWED main project tasks are bound to its software (WP3, 6) and hardware (WP4, 5) branches:
In WP3 an SMM-workbench based on FreeCAD libraries will be programmed for setting up parameterized tip-sample models and running EM simulations in a sweep mode. A dedicated module will be developed for post-processing simulated EM fields into the relevant parameters (calibrated S11, energy integrals) of SMM, dielectric resonator, and coaxial probe measurements.
In WP6 the SMM-workbench of WP3 will be incorporated into the open innovation platform. Export and import of Gwyddion data formats will be implemented. Open file-based interfaces to external CAD and simulation tools will be provided.
In WP4 reference measurements of samples provided by industry will be performed with dielectric custom-made resonators. A single-range resolution-enhanced scanner will be built.
In WP5 the test fixtures of WP4 will be further adapted to industrial environments in terms of portability and 2D imaging.
This project has received funding from the European Unionís Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 761036.
