2020-2023 partner H2020 EU-FET Open (FET – Future emerging technology in the EU program RIA – Research and Innovation action) project on frequency comb (SiComb). The project demonstrates a ground-breaking ultra-broadband frequency comb which is chip-based and one of the solutions to increase the network capacity using less energy. Besides, increasing the capacity of network technology, the new silicon carbide-based optical chip will also have important impacts on many other scientific and engineering areas such as quantum optics, quantum computing, sensing, and imaging. This is also why innovation knowledge and transfer activity becomes an added value. A frequency comb is an instrument that creates very short light ultrafast pulses using a laser and can measure wavelengths down to 15 decimal places. The high accuracy means that it can be used in, for example, atomic clocks and GPS devices, while the broad usefulness comes when using this technique to transmit data (a faster and more energy efficient internet). The FET-Open projects are cutting-edge high-risk / high-impact interdisciplinary research with essential characteristics like Radical vision, Breakthrough technological target, Ambitious interdisciplinary research.

2020-2021 SME support APM Technologies AB related to Stress-free Wire Arch Additive Manufacturing (SWAAM) process.
2020-2021 SME support ACS Bond AB related to operations of manufacturing and development of advanced compound semiconductor materials for semiconductor technologies and optoelectronics.
2019-2020 SME support Simea Optic AB related to high temperature pressure sensor that could have a profound impact on automotive energy systems as it is identified as a key component to boost efficiency and improve control accuracy of engines at higher temperatures. A 5% fuel saving in automobile sector provides a profound energy saving and has direct effect on lower CO2 emission. The potential is expanded since the sensor is also attractive for marine industry and biofuel based engines. The robustness and temperature properties of SiC material in membrane make the sensor applicable in petrochemical, oil, gas, and similar harsh environments.
