Low energy ELEctron driven chemistry for the advantage of emerging NAno-fabrication methods (ELENA)

Elena

H2020 Project ID: 722149 funded as a MSCA-ITN-ETN - European Training Network

ELENA; Low energy ELEctron driven chemistry for the advantage of emerging NAno- fabrication methods, is a Horizon 2020; Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network. It brings together diverse resources from commercial partners, research institutes and universities to study the fundamental processes underpinning two innovative, next generation
nanoscopic fabrication techniques; Focused Electron, Beam Induced Deposition (FEBID) and Extreme Ultra Violet Lithography (EUVL). The network seeks to train, through research, a new generation of Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) with a fundamental understanding of the physics and chemistry underpinning FEBID and EUVL and in commercial and entrepreneurial skills necessary to bring such research from the laboratory to the commercial arena. The overall aim is to translate the knowledge gained in this collaborative project to technological advantage with the ultimate goal of making these methods commercially competitive within the nanotechnology industry.

The Open University will host one of the 15 ESRs to explore electron induced dissociation of molecular systems that may be used as precursors for building nanostructures. The project will exploit the technique of Velocity Map Imaging (VMI), developed at the Open University, to explore two electron induced pathways, Dissociative Electron Attachment (DEA) and Dipolar Dissociation (DD) of such precursor molecule.

The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 722149”.
