ATLANT 3D and Partners Successfully Conclude EU Horizon 2020 Mesomorph Project

ATLANT 3D and Partners Successfully Conclude EU Horizon 2020 Mesomorph Project, Pioneering Next-Generation Micro-Component Production Technology

COPENHAGEN, DENMARK, May 17, 2024 – ATLANT 3D, in collaboration with twelve other European partners, is pleased to announce the successful completion of the Horizon 2020 Mesomorph project. This innovative initiative, entirely funded by the European Commission with a budget of approximately 10 million Euros, aimed to revolutionize the production of micro-components essential for future advanced technologies. 

The Mesomorph project, concluded on March 31, 2024, focused on the development of an all-in-one machine capable of integrating femto laser micro-ablation, two-photon polymerization, and atomic layer deposition technologies. This cutting-edge machine was engineered and built by dedicated researchers at the ARM Laboratory at SUPSI with significant contributions from ATLANT 3D and other technological partners: Scuola Universitaria Professionale della Svizzera Italiana (SUPSI), Iris SRL, UAB Femtika, NLight Europe SRL, Morphica Societa a Responsabilita Limitata, Friedrich-Alexander-Universitaet Erlangen-Nuernberg (FAU), Politecnico di Torino, ST Microelectronics SRL, Smolsys AG, Heliotis AG, MCH-Tronics SAGL and Yalosys AG. 

The primary goal of this project was to enable the production of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), micro-sensors, and micro-devices that are smaller, lighter, and more energy-efficient. Such advancements are crucial for the large-scale integration necessary for the creation of new products and processes across various sectors, including optoelectronics, medical, and environmental fields. 

The Mesomorph machine’s capabilities have been thoroughly validated, demonstrating its potential to produce micro-systems with unprecedented dimensions and functionalities as well as real application cases from industry in the field of optics, MEMS, and heterogeneous integrated devices. These advancements are supported by a specialized software platform developed specifically for the project, which aids in the design, engineering, and production phases of these innovative components. 

The Mesomorph machine will remain operational at the ARM laboratory of the Innovative Technologies Department for further research, demonstrations, and educational purposes available for collaborators as well as other academic and industrial entities.
