Welcome on the QUANTIHEAT European research project website

QUANTItative scanning probe microscopy techniques for HEAT transfer management in nanomaterials and nanodevices


The QUANTIHEAT project tackles issues related to thermal metrology at the nanoscale and aims at delivering validated standards, methods and modeling tools for nanothermal designs and measurements. This 4-year project brings together 20 partners from 7 different European countries and 2 associated countries. It has received funding from the European Union Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement n°604668.

6-Month meeting on 10-11 June 2014 in UK    

The 6-Month QUANTIHEAT Consortium meeting took place on 10 and 11 June 2014 in Teddington in UK. The 20 partners of the project were represented (39 people from 9 countries) and were welcomed by the partner, NPL (National Physical Laboratory).

The first day dealt with the management/coordination topics (WP13-14), the dissemination activities (WP12) and the work progress of WP1 and WP2: in particular, presentation of the specifications of industrially applied nanomaterials and processes by industrials (Thales, Picosun, Conpart, MRT, NPL) and of the thermophysical measurements methods available in the Consortium. The work performed in WP1/2 is important as it will be used as guidance all along the project duration.
The second day dealt with the presentation of the work progress and schedule of the other scientific Work Packages. During the 2 days, a focus was made on deliverables to be submitted soon to the European Commission.
