MUFRED —– Microwave Ultra-Fast Reconfigurable Electronic Devices


Next-generation communication / security / surveillance / sensing systems for civilian, defense, space or airborne applications, require real-time ultra-fast self-reconfigurable devices to efficiently optimize their performances (data rate, quality of service, resolution, or even discretion). In this context, the MUFRED project aims at demonstrating the ideal capabilities of the Metal Insulator phase Transition (MIT) materials such as vanadium dioxide (VO2) for the fabrication of new electronic ultra-fast reconfigurable microwave components taking benefit of the optical activation (or electrical activation as a back-up solution) of the transition. To this end, we will develop well-controlled thin films and evaluate the performances of such optically-controlled electronic devices through attainable and measurable objectives.
