Expected results and impacts

The main outcome of the QUANTIHEAT project is the establishment and implementation of a new metrology technology based on scanning thermal probing to characterise the thermal properties of nanomaterials,  polymers, composites, catalysts and devices at nanoscale.

The new methodology includes modelling and simulation tools, measurement tooling, reference and calibration samples and guidelines for the best practices to perform measurements, leading to creation of standards in the field of research of nanoscale thermal properties. The new methodology enables and advances the development of new generation nanomaterials for nano-imprint lithography (NIL) and interconnect materials but also in semiconductors, data storage, energy, etc...

The impacts of the project can be summarized in the following figure (in red) showing the key beneficiaries in the industry sector (in purple):
