A H2020 Marie Curie Skłodowska - European Training Network (ETN) coordinated by EPFL
The OMT project is a collaborative research and training network comprising 14 partners from 12 renowned universities and 2 leading industries located in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Switzerland.
We offer PhD students (early-stage researchers) the opportunity to improve their research and transferable skills, join leading research groups and enhance their career prospects. Extending traditional PhD training to prepare researchers to join the competitive ranks of academia and industry.

What is OMT ?
Nano- and micromechanical oscillators are in our modern information age indispensable technologies that enable navigation, timing, motional sensing and wireless communication and are found in any modern cell phone, plane or car.
The ETN research focuses on optomechanical technologies (OMT) – new technologies based on cavity optomechanical interactions that allow to read out and control mechanical oscillators at the quantum level using optical fields.
This ETN seeks to advance the state of the art and make novel contributions to the field by focusing on entirely new applications of optomechanical technologies by specifically exploring new frontiers:
Chip-scale microwave to optical conversion schemes
Dissipative optomechanical systems for low noise amplification and novel non-reciprocal microwave components
Optomechanical devices with novel 2D materials
Making optomechanical systems practical, bridging the gap from research to market
