Speeding innovation for industry
Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs)
Detector design is advancing by leaps and bounds, and the range of potential applications for imaging detectors is growing exponentially. CEA Tech institute Leti can develop detectors of various wavelengths to suit the intended use.
Leti researchers are working on visible and near-infrared imaging, developing pixels whose design, technology, and other features can be modified to suit an increasingly broad range of applications, from cameras to driverless cars. And, for the military and space industries, Leti researchers are working on photodiodes made from a variety of semiconductor materials, including II–VI materials, an area in which Leti brings extensive know-how in conjunction with industry leader Sofradir. For business and consumer applications, Leti has developed microbolometers, leveraging 25 years of experience in bolometric imager R&D. This technology has been transferred to Ulis for commercialization.
Finally, Leti also conducts advanced R&D in terahertz imaging, developing matrix detectors for security, industrial quality control, and farming.
ALL TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS
CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, is gradually shifting over to more sustainable practices.
NuVISION, commercialized by NUVIA, is the world’s first four-in-one gamma camera. It was recently approved by the 2024 Paris Olympics security committee.
The world’s smallest gamma camera was developed to enable Orano to map hot cells at its nuclear fuel reprocessing plant in La Hague, France.
A curved sensor that limits the number of lenses required in optical equipment was recently developed. The new sensor reduces the volume of camera modules by half, creating opportunities for the manufacturers of cameras, smartphones, and other optical systems.
LNHB, a laboratory of List, a CEA Tech institute, helped develop a transportable primary calibration instrument for radiopharmaceuticals.
How to collaborate with CEA Tech teams ?
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.
