    Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg

    DIACAT is exploring a radically new technological approach to tackle of one of the greatest problems of our time: CO2 emissions. It uses diamond nanomaterials to reduce CO2 with the help of sunlight to valuable carbon compounds, which can either be used in the production of synthetic “zero-carbon” fuels or fine chemicals. DIACAT has delivered the proof-of-concept and will prepare the next steps for bringing this technology to the European market.

    Chalmers University of Technology

    In this project we want to lay the technological foundations for a topological insulator-based device that can realize the SI Ampere. An accurate charge pump that can operate at temperatures and magnetic fields achievable using affordable table-top systems would be of immediate use in the realization of the Ampere.
