Leti is developing a new generation of photonic components: micro LED (µLED) arrays. This breakthrough technology brings advances in multiple applications including smart lighting, augmented reality in integrated smart glasses and large/transparent, flexible 3D displays.
A new generation of photonic components: µLED arrays.
The city of San Francisco is keeping a close eye on air pollution with a little help from a startup from France and its real-time air-quality monitoring solution.
SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 3, 2020 – Leti, an institute of CEA-Tech, has developed a silicon nitride (Si3N4) 200mm platform for developing ultralow loss, high-power photonics in UV through mid-infrared wavelengths. Available in CEA-Leti’s SiN platform in a multi-project-wafer program, the breakthrough targets designers in integrated quantum optics, LiDAR, biosensing, and imaging whose projects require ultralow propagation losses and high-power handling capability.
SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 4, 2020 – Leti, an institute of CEA-Tech, has developed a photoacoustic spectroscopy technology for monitoring dangerous chemical emissions and traces of gas that could reduce the cost and the size these systems by a factor of 10 or more compared to existing tools.
GRENOBLE, France – Jan. 7, 2020 – Leti, an institute of CEA-Tech, will present five invited papers, 21 in total (20 oral papers and 1 poster), at Photonics West 2020 in San Francisco, Feb. 1-6. In addition, its teams will introduce the institute’s latest transfer-ready solutions for all-wavelength imaging, information display systems, light-emissive components, optical data communications, optical sensors, and other advances at the French Pavilion in booth 857A, Moscone Center, during the event.
GRENOBLE, France – Dec. 19 2019 – LiFi, or visible-light communication, has significant advantages over WiFi, such as data-transmission speed and the data security it offers because light does not penetrate walls. But wide adoption is constrained primarily because of interference between devices using LiFi networks and LiFi's resulting poor performance in large areas.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
