OXOLUTIA S.L. (www.oxolutia.com) is a technology-based spin-off company belonging to the Scientific Park of the Autonomous University of Barcelona. It was founded in 2010 and arose from the Department of Superconductor Materials and Large Scale Nanostructures of the Materials Science Institute of Barcelona from the Spanish National Research Council (ICMAB-CSIC). OXOLUTIA’s core technology is the chemical solution deposition (CSD) for the preparation of nanostructured films of functional oxides. The activities of the company have been mainly devoted to the technological effort of scaling-up nanostructured second-generation superconductor tapes and inorganic solar cells on different substrates. A reel-to-reel pilot plant for inkjet printing of oxide architectures is operative and able to produce materials in the scale of meters. Furthermore, OXOLUTIA has already commercial activity in manufacturing of advanced ceramic targets for PVD and bulk powders, as well as customized electrical furnaces for thin films as well as private research contracts.
Currently, the staff is composed of 7 members (1 CEO, 2 Researchers, 1 Engineer, 1 Graduate, 1 Technician and 1 Administrative).
We have experience in participating in FP7, national and regional funded projects that are helping to bring about technological maturity and proximity to the market of inkjet-printed functional oxides.
Tasks related to FASTGRID will be :
- Inkjet printing and growth of high quality buffer and REBCO superconductor epitaxial layers on double-sided sapphire single crystals.
- Implementation of the CFD strategy on REBCO bare layers by inkjet printing.
- Development of new silver inks specially designed for fault current limitation.
