The EU Project PHENOMEN (All-Phononic circuits Enabled by Opto-Mechanics), a H2020 FET OPEN funded project coordinated by the ICN2-P2N was evaluated as excellent by the European Commission. The consortium proved convincingly the feasibility of a phononic circuit working at room temperature using silicon compatible technologies. Here some excerpts from the evaluation report.
“The reviewers unanimously agree the project has delivered “exceptional results with significant immediate or potential impact”.
We confirm that the outcome from the project, in terms of new understanding in physics of phonons and their possible outcomes definitively will influence the research community. The project has delivered several important results, both in terms of models and simulation tools development as in terms of new technology.”
