In unseren Videoserien geben wir Ihnen einen Einblick in unsere Kompetenzen, begleiten unsere Wissenschaftler und stellen Ihnen unsere Superwomen in Science vor. Erfahren Sie, was unsere Mitarbeiter motiviert und warum sie gerne bei SAL arbeiten, an welchen innovativen Projekten wir arbeiten und wie wir gemeinsam die Zukunft entlang der gesamten EBS-Wertschöpfungskette entfalten wollen.
Laser patterning at SAL
Our laser scribing platform is equipped with 75 watt CO2 laser. We use it to fabricate laser induced graphene on various carbon-based substrates. Our researcher Lukas explains the process in the video.
Inkjet Printing at SAL
Inkjet printing is an additive digital manufacturing technology and can be used for the fabrication of smart sensors. Inkjet printing is a non-contact method, which means it can be used for sensitive substrates as the substate is not touched by the printhead. Our researcher Johanna explains the process in the video.
Aerosol Jet Printing at SAL
The Aerosol Jet Printer enables researchers at SAL to print electronic components such as resistors, capacitors, antennas or sensors on different 2D or 3D substrates with high precision and speed. Our researcher Emily explains the process in the video.
Printed & flexible electronics and sensor applications
Printed electronics and their integration into smart systems can solve key issues of industries today. By enabling electronics everywhere and on everything in a resource-efficient way, the tools required for a sustainable digital transformation are provided.
In the field of Sensor Applications, our researchers work on sustainable sensorics, flexible electronics, harsh environment sensing and much more.
This was ASSIC
For the past 8 years, Silicon Austria Labs worked together with several industrial and scientific partners in the scope of ASSIC Austrian Smart Systems Integration Research Center. The focus of the research activities of ASSIC lies on intelligent system integration based on micro- and nanotechnologies. With its research activities, ASSIC offers well-founded system knowledge about components, technologies, materials, assembly and connection technologies.
Tiny Power Box: Onboard charger for electric cars
In the project "Tiny Power Box", the focus is on optimizing the power density of built-in chargers in electric cars, so-called onboard chargers. The aim is to reduce weight, save components and space while at the same time increase power density by a factor of 4, achieve highest efficiency for fast charging, and increase environmental compatibility.
Silicon Austria Labs - Your research partner for electronic based systems
Silicon Austria Labs is your research partner for electronic based systems.
With strategic and contract research as well as in cooperation with industrial and scientific partners, SAL conducts research on relevant key topics with future-oriented development potential. 50% of the project volume is financed by SAL, while the cash contribution from the industrial partners only amounts to 25% of the total project volume. The remaining 25% is contributed by industry through in-kind services. In addition to numerous highly equipped laboratories (including a Metrology Lab, Environmental Lab and an Optics Lab), an ISO class 5 clean room for processing chips and wafers as well as using the latest packaging technologies is available for research in Villach.
Superwomen in Science: This is what our researchers work on in the cleanroom
At SAL Villach, we have several laboratories, including a 300m² cleanroom with beyond-state-of-the-art equipment. Sarah, Annalisa, Jasmin and Madeleine work on innovative microsystem technologies, such as piezo MEMS. In the video, they talk about their research and what it takes to start and have a successful career in research.
As part of our research on Sensor Systems in Villach, SAL is operating the COMET K1 center ASSIC Austrian Smart Systems Integration Research Center. The focus of the research activities of ASSIC is on intelligent system integration based on micro- and nanotechnologies. With its research activities, ASSIC offers well-founded system knowledge about components, technologies, materials, assembly and connection technologies. Learn more: https://www.assic.eu/
Silicon Austria Labs & University of Klagenfurt work on ubiquitous sensing
In the joint USE Lab, Silicon Austria Labs and the University of Klagenfurt are working on ubiquitous sensing and bring the "smartness" in the sensor.
