2D-Experimental Pilot Line

Establishing an ecosystem for integrated 2D materials in the semiconductor industry 

EU Funded

The 2D Experimental Pilot Line (2D-EPL), a €20 million project launched in October 2020 to integrate 2D materials into silicon wafers, is the culmination of many of the Graphene Flagship’s efforts to bring graphene and related materials (GRMs) out of the lab and into commercial applications. With this project we address the industrialisation challenges of achieving reliable fabrication processes for high-volume production and establish a European ecosystem for prototype production of graphene and related materials (GRM) based electronics, photonics and sensors.

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.

2D-EPL's fourth MPW run is now open. Purple CMOS wafers.

MPW run 4 now OPEN!

The 2D-EPL project has launched its fourth multi-project wafer (MPW) run where universities, research institutes and companies can include their designs as dies on joint wafers. This run is mainly intended for graphene sensors, and will be offered by VTT. 

The offered baseline process is a CMOS integrated GFET including via, back gate, bottom contact, graphene and encapsulation modules. The design of the device can be adjusted within the specifications.

Intended applications:

  • GFETs for Bio/Gas/Chemical sensors, Hall Sensors, Photodetectors
  • CMOS readout integrated sensors
  • Large sensors arrays with multiplexing and integrated readout
