The Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST) and Circuit Foil signed a three-year partnership agreement. This initiative, supported by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR) within the framework of a CORE-PPP, aims to develop a new generation of copper.

This technology could thus be used for the manufacture of lightning-resistant composite aircraft. Damage can be caused by lightning: millimeter-sized holes, destruction of sensors, etc. The electromagnetic fields generated by the storm can interfere with the electronic system of the device.

Damien Lenoble, head of the nanomaterials and nanotechnology unit at LIST, stressed that “this collaboration is another proof of the Institute’s important role as an RTO (Research and Technology Organisation) in transferring technology to businesses and thus strengthening the Luxembourg economy. This project bears witness to the industrial impact of the research carried out over the last five years in the area of nanomaterials. Increased support from the FNR and the Ministry of the Economy should enable an acceleration of the technological transformations supported by LIST.”

Fabienne Bozet, CEO of Circuit Foil, declares that “this research project will eventually add yet another string to Circuit Foil’s bow. It is integrated into Circuit Foil’s strategy of product portfolio growth towards higher value-added products, particularly in sectors other than the electronics and automobile industry where the major part of our products are sold.”
