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.

42-Month Quantiheat meeting on 11th -12th May 2017 in UK

The 42-Month Consortium meeting took place in Lancaster (UK) hosted by the University of Lancaster (Quantiheat partner) and gathered 34 participants. This meeting was the opportunity to present the last results and to organize the work for the last months of the project. Only 7 months left!

The first day of the meeting (11th May) was devoted to the presentation of the last characterization results of all passive, test, active and industrial samples studied in the project and to the interlaboratory comparisons/ Design of Experiments performed in SThM user laboratories.

During the second day (12th May), the work progress in modeling and reproducibility demonstration of the developed novel thermal techniques and probes were presented. The Consortium also discussed the schedule of the “New technology applications” work package that takes place in the last months of the project. Finally, a dissemination/exploitation point and a focus on the final financial and scientific reporting were made.

The final Review-Consortium meeting will be held in Lyon, France on 7th-8th November, hosted by the partner CNRS. The project will end in November.
