Molecular-scale Electronics (MOLESCO)
The MOLESCO network creates a unique training and research environment to develop a pool of young researchers capable of achieving breakthroughs aimed at realising the immense potential of molecular electronics. In part this will involve the major challenges of design and fabrication of molecular-scale devices.
Start: January 2014
We combine our expertise on CVD graphene growth and patterning with METAS expertise in high precision measurement to work towards the realization of a new quantum standard of resistance based on graphene.

Synaptic Molecular Networks for Bio-inspired Information Processing (SYMONE)
The SYMONE long-term vision is to build multi-scale bio-/neuro-inspired systems interfacing networks of locally-connected molecular-scale devices to macroscopic systems for unconventional information processing with scalable neuromorphic architectures. The SYMONE computational substrate is a memristive/synaptic network controlled by a multi-terminal structure of input/output ports and internal gates embedded in a classical digital CMOS environment. The SYMONE goal is the exploration of a multiscale platform connecting molecular-scale devices into networks for the development and testing of synaptic devices and scalable neuromorphic architectures, and for investigating materials and components with new functionalities. This may also open roads toward applications to intelligent sensors arrays, and to nano-devices integrated in a variety of hybrid systems, in particular biological systems.
