Lukasiewicz – Institute of Microelectronics and Photonics has a history of more than 50 years. As of April, it is 2019 part of the Łukasiewicz Research Network. The Institute conducts scientific research and performs developmental work in the fields of micro- and nano-electronics, materials engineering, optoelectronics and nanophotonics, microwave electronics, power electronics, transparent and flexible electronics. The Institute implements and disseminates the results of these works in the economy, being open to cooperation with entrepreneurs.
The scope of the Institute’s operations includes in particular:
- development of the design and production technology of micro- and opto-electronic solid-state devices, including: microwave and photonic discrete elements, detectors and sensors, integrated circuits microsystems and electronic subassemblies, and microelectronic hybrid systems power devices, diffraction elements;
- development of methods for the design of micro- and optoelectronic solid-state devices, and development of new methods for characterization materials, structures and solid-state devices;
- development of technologies for the production of new materials, such as, silicon carbide, epitaxial graphene, flake graphene, ceramic-metal composites, advanced ceramics, as well as testing their properties for industrial use;
- standardization, certification, and approval activities.
The research at the Institute is organized around technology lines for: optoelectronic subassemblies, silicon subassemblies, wide band gap semiconductor subassemblies, and the LTCC technology. These states of the arts lines enable the scientific community to participate in research, and entrepreneurs to develop new solutions.
