Welcome to

the SAWtrain Project

SAWtrain is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network offering joint research training at the PhD level on the physics and applications of surface acoustic waves (SAWs) in semiconductor structures and related materials.

SAWs are mechanical vibrations travelling along the surface of a material, which resemble micro earthquakes on the surface of a chip. SAWtrain aims at the investigation of SAWs in semiconductor structures as well as their exploitation for novel device functionalities.

For detailed information on the network, SAW-based science, and the application procedure, please explore our website.
