Using Diamond in Advanced Packaging: Current Developments and Status

on 14-03-2024

... On March 14, 2024, at 8:00 am, will take place a webinar entitled “Using Diamond in Advanced Packaging: Current Developments and Status”.

Joana Catarina Mendes is one of the two invited speakers, with a presentation about “Using Diamond Films to Enhance Thermal Performance in Electronics Packaging”. The webinar will present a detailed background on the status of diamond film development.

Artificial diamond films are deposited from a mixture of methane and hydrogen - and the deposition of the material is not an expensive process. However, the integration of diamond films and electronic devices requires the development and optimization of new processing lines, which is a costly procedure. LEDs, for instance, have become low-cost components. Are manufacturers willing to trade the current low cost for higher efficiency/performance and longer lifetime? Specific upcoming possibilities are for HEMT packaging, 5G/6G RF modules in cell phones, and heterogeneous integration such as for high-power SiP modules.

The webinar is free yet subject to registration:

Quantum Tech Day: Quantum Computing

on 13-03-2024

... Instituto de Telecomunicações, at University at Aveiro, will host two talks on Quantum Computing, on March 13, from 14:30 to 17:00.

1 - Photonic Quantum Computing by Ernesto Galvão (INL)
2 - Quantum Computing: an Engineering approach with MATLAB by Armando Nolasco Pinto (IT - UA)

Ernesto Galvão holds degrees in physics from the University of Oxford (PhD 2002), Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (Master´s 1998), and Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro (Bachelor´s 1996). He was a postdoctoral fellow at Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (Canada) between 2002 and 2005 and is currently on leave from Instituto de Física of Fluminense Federal University (Brazil), where he has been faculty since 2006.

Armando N. Pinto is a Senior researcher at Instituto de Telecomunicações, and an Associate Professor in the Electronic, Telecommunications and Informatics Department of Aveiro University. His main research interests are in optical communication systems, mainly on nonlinear, polarization-dependent, and quantum effects in optical fibers. He received his B.S. (1994) in Electronic and Telecommunications Engineering and Ph.D. (1999) in Electrical Engineering, from the University of Aveiro.
