Obituary Hanns-Ulrich Habermeier
We are sad to hear of the death of Hanns-Ulrich Habermeier who died on July 20th, 2019 in Stuttgart / Germany. He was an internationally well renowned applied physicist, who spent his all career to Materials Sciences. Since several years he had to fight about his illness, remaining very active nearly to the end. At the last May E-MRS / IUMRS / ICAM conference in Nice, he was still active participating to all debates. Unfortunately he lost his last battle.
Between the 11th and the 16th of July (2003), the 1st Training Program in Microelectronic Technologies entitled “Microelectronics and Electronic Materials in High School” was held in the Department of Material Science, under the PRODEP III directive. The training was supported by CENIMAT and CEMOP whose research centers/laboratories are related to the Department of Materials Science.
Ongoing work in producing fully transparent active matrice for display application will soon be disclosed.
CEMOP developed the first fully transparent thin film transistor based
on the exclusive use of oxides! This work has been under the responsability of Prof. E. Fortunato, with the cooperation of G. Lavareda. More detailed information will be available in the site soon.
After an external evaluation by the Fundação para a Ciência e Tecnologia (a governmental agency for science and technology), CEMOP (within CENIMAT) was again recognized as the leading cutting edge in Europe in the field of thin film microelectronics and optoectronics. The external evaluators clearly recognized CEMOP, giving the group the highest remarks and ranking it as excellent.
Frost & Sullivan, an international auditing and consulting company from England, has highlighted in their magazine, for the second time, the excellence of the research done by investigators at CEMOP and those belonging to the Department of Science and Materials' Engineering.
