Congratulations to our SINANO Institute colleague Prof. Dr. Clivia M Sotomayor Torres, leader of the Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia (ICN2) Phononic and Photonic Nanostructures Group, who was awarded an ERC Advanced Grant for the five-year project LEIT, involving also another SINANO member VTT, which aims at developing a disruptive technology based on phononic interconnects to reduce energy consumption of electronic circuits.
She has proposed an innovative approach to address the interconnect energy-consumption challenge. Her five-year project LEIT, from “Lossless information for emerging information technologies” will develop structures that allow taking advantage of phonon properties to transmit information using small amounts of energy.
