Speeding innovation for industry
Human health and the environment
Mitigating the impact of environmental factors like air and water pollution on public health is one of today’s major challenges. CEA Tech is addressing this challenge in three ways. First, CEA Tech is developing different types of sensors to analyze pollutant concentrations and detect and monitor specific gases and particulate matter so that alerts and corrective measures can be set up if a given threshold is exceeded.CEA Tech is also helping to develop carbon-free energy sources (PV solar, solar thermal, and embedded batteries to promote the widespread adoption of electric vehicles, for example) with the overall goal of reducing the pollutants released into the atmosphere. Last, CEA Tech has built up specialist knowledge in nanosafety and protection to limit the potential impacts of nanomaterials handling and implementation on public health throughout the product lifecycle.
List, a CEA Tech institute, developed a mathematical model to improve medical imaging protocols so that the lowest possible dose of ionizing radiation can be used without negatively affecting the reliability of the diagnosis.
The MIRPHAB pilot line is a one-stop-shop for mid-infrared detection technologies. It is available to companies that would like to integrate state-of-the-art chemical sensors into their products.
EU Horizon 2020 project REDFINCH is tackling the next generation of miniaturized portable optical sensors to detect gases and proteins in liquid. The sensors under development will initially target the petrochemical and dairy industries.
Reliable and reproducible nanomaterials characterization protocols have been developed at Liten and are now available to businesses for their nanomaterials testing campaigns.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is coordinating the development of ISO standards for microfluidics. The goal is to speed up research and development in a field where design rules are often proprietary and empirical.
