The 2D Experimental Pilot Line (2D-EPL) project, an initiative from the Graphene Flagship, aims to establish a European ecosystem for prototype production of graphene and related materials (GRM) based electronics, photonics and sensors.
As large scale GRM integration with semiconductor technology is still at its infancy, the project is built on two pillars:
- In Pillar 1, the 2D-EPL will offer prototyping services (in the form of Multi Purpose Wafer runs as well as tailor designed integrations) for 150- and 200-mm wafers, based on the current state-of-the-art graphene device manufacturing and integration techniques. This will ensure external users and customers are served by the 2D-EPL early in the project and guarantees the inclusion of their input in the development of the final processes by providing the specifications on required device layouts, materials and device performances.
- In Pillar 2, the consortium will develop a fully automated process flow on 200- and 300-mm wafers, including the growth and transfer of high crystal quality graphene and TMDCs. The knowledge gained in Pillar 2 will be transferred to Pillar 1 to continuously improve the baseline process provided by the 2D-EPL.
The project will cover the whole value chain including tool manufacturers, chemical and material providers and pilot lines, to secure progress in GRM integration and to be able to offer prototyping services to academics, SMEs and companies which can benefit from the progresses of GRM integration with silicon achieved within the 2D-EPL consortium.
This entry point is the unique access point to engage with the 2D-EPL. It will secure that all your questions to the 2D-EPL will be answered and that a follow up on your requests to engage with the 2D-EPL will be secured.
