Democritus University of Thrace (DUTh)

Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Electronics Laboratory

DUTH Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH) was established in July 1973 by Legislative Decree No. 87 of 27 July 1973, and started operating during the academic year 1974-1975. It was named "Democritus" in honor of the ancient Greek philosopher Democritus, who hailed from the town of Abdera in Thrace. The administration of DUTH is headquartered in Komotini, which is the capital city of the Administrative Region of Eastern Macedonia and Thrace. The University is currently operating eight Faculties and nineteen Schools in four cities of Thrace - eight in Komotini, five in Xanthi, four in Alexandroupolis and two in Orestiada. Overall, more than 15,000 students are studying at DUTH at undergraduate and post-graduate level. The University plays an important role in strengthening the national and cultural identity of the region of Thrace, and contributes to the high level of education in Greece. Relying on the quality of teaching and research level, DUTH has secured a place among the best Greek Universities. As a Higher Education Institution, DUTH is a Public Entity with complete autonomy that is supervised and funded by the State through the Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs. DUTH has participated/ is currently participating in several EU-funded programmes, such as FP7 actions: (27; of which 4 are MSCA), H2020 actions: (10; one of which is a MSCA and another two are in the Grant Preparation Phase), JUST Action Grants: (2), Life actions: (1), Erasmus+ actions: (2), Jean Monnet Chair (1) etc. Furthermore, the University is participating in several bilateral and multilateral cooperational programmes such as Transnational Cooperation Programmes “MED”,"Black Sea","Balkan –Mediterranean" and cross-border European Territorial Cooperation Programme “Greece-Bulgaria” etc., as well as national ones".

Electronic Nanomaterials and Devices Group

NTUA Research activities of the group focus at the intersection of nanotechnology with electronics through the incorporation of nanostructures into electronic devices. Materials are grown using high vacuum technology while their patterning is performed either by optical or e-beam lithography. Processing equipment are located in a clean room laboratory operating since 2006 while device testing takes place in the electrical characterization laboratory. The group has participated in numerous national and European research projects (ICT, NMP, Marie-Curie) and has recently been awarded an Excellence (Aristeia II) project.

We investigate the physics and technology of resistive memories (ReRAM) based on metal oxides formed either from continuous thin films or nanoparticle assemblies. The material and device fabrication is performed in a high vacuum system in the Clean Room Laboratory of the Dept. of Physics of NTUA. We perform electrical characterization of the device as well as material characterization.

Unconventional Computing Laboratory

UWE The Unconventional Computing Laboratory was founded by Prof Andy Adamatzky in 2001 as a response to an urgent need to develop computers for next century. We employ complex dynamics in physical, chemical and biological media to design novel computational techniques, architectures and working prototypes of non-linear media based computers. The research is based on an interdisciplinary cooperation in modelling and experimental verification of novel principles of information processing and analysis in uniform distributed large-scale chemical and physical systems. We apply these novel principles to the design of working prototypes of massively parallel computing devices with intrinsic functions that exploit the complex dynamics of non-linear systems.

Chair of Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering

TUD The Chair of Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering imparts knowledge, methods and tools in the foundational and the major course of studies of Electrical Engineering, Mechatronics, Information Systems Technology and Regenerative Energy Systems.

The research of the chair focuses on methods for modeling and simulation of complex systems. The main focus of the working group is on cellular non-linear networks (CNN), reaction diffusion networks, memristors and Volterra systems for the solution of interdisciplinary problems, in particular biomedical signal and image processing.

The Chair of Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering deals with the investigation and application of complex systems, biomedical signal processing, the research of novel nanostructures (memristors) and the development of highly parallel digital processors.

The working group’s research focuses on methods for modelling and simulation of complex systems, primarily electronic circuits. Based on the basic theoretical assessment of the properties of such systems, the dynamic behaviour in particular is used in the investigations for the development of methods for information processing.

High Performance Integrated Circuits and Systems Design Group (HIPICS)

UPC The High Performance Integrated Circuits and Systems Design Group (HIPICS) is part of the Department of Electronic Engineering and is located in buildings C4 and C5 of the Campus Nord of the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC), BarcelonaTech in Barcelona.
Its activity is focused in advanced topics of integrated electronic devices, circuits and systems related with technology limitations, second order effects and new technologies. The main research topics are:

  • process variations and noise aware digital design
  • analog and RF design techniques for deep-submicron and nanometer scale technologies
  • signal integrity and substrate noise effects on mixed-signal ICs
  • thermal testing of digital, analog and RF integrated circuits
  • design of RF, UWB and mmW integrated circuits
  • energy harvesting for ultra low power systems

HIPICS group has obtained the mention "Grup de Recerca Consolidat" by the Generalitat de Catalunya since 2005.
The group faculty teaches in the Telecommunications Faculty and also in the Doctorate Program of the Electronic Engineering Department.
