Breakthrough Classifies Types of Arrhythmia Recordings
With Precise Aleatoric and Epistemic Uncertainty
Founded in July 2020 by Hafa and IESPM, the startup Lubsens is commercializing a compact solution to monitor machine lubrication and anticipate industrial maintenance needs. This innovative solution was made possible by CEA-Leti’s development of a miniaturized sensor that can identify, count and categorize particles in industrial lubricants.
Based at CEA-Leti, Collaboration Focuses on Materials Engineering Solutions. To Accelerate Semiconductor Device Development for Applied’s ICAPS Customers
With the support of its historic partners (CEA Investissement, Supernova Invest, Braemar Energy Ventures, Bpifrance and the French government), Aledia has raised the funds required to launch the industrialization of its MicroLED technology for displays. First up, the company will implement production for the smartwatch, smartphone, tablet, large screen LED display, large TV display and laptop markets before ratcheting up its production to target augmented reality and automobile markets.
Lets congratulate Anthony Albanese for his best poster presentation for Chalcogenides for applications in photonics and neuromorphism: innovative materials, from their integration to photonic devices
Electrical junctions are essential to the proper functioning of integrated circuits. While they happen to only make up a small proportion of the total of a device’s weight, their manufacturing process requires a great deal of energy and materials. The process therefore must be optimized to reduce their impact while ensuring state-of-the-art performance. This is specifically the challenge on which Nada and Philippe have focused their research.
On September 28th, 2023, Soitec inaugurated a new production facility dedicated to SmartSiC™ substrates. The production of these substrates relies on Soitec's SmartCut™ technology, which reduces CO2 emissions by up to 70% during wafer production.
The 17th edition of Leti Innovation Days Tokyo was held at the residence of the French Ambassador to Japan on October 10, 2023, before a prestigious gathering of Japanese industry representatives.
Since the turn of the century, the health sector has counted on the steady delivery of innovative technologies to prevent diseases and improve medical diagnosis, as well as patient monitoring and treatment.
Perfectly-transparent piezoelectric materials could enable new high-performance haptic interfaces, groundbreaking products like smart and self-cleaning windows, and novel piezo transducers for photoacoustic imaging. Unfortunately, these materials are difficult to manufacture. CEA-Leti recently came up with innovations in both processes and materials that get around some of the issues plaguing PZT, one of today’s most commonly-used piezoelectric materials.
R&D Vision Includes Adapting Wireless Technology for Drones and Robots in Factories
Constantly yielding important breakthroughs, epitaxy research is an extremely dynamic field. Epitaxy involves developing techniques to produce high-quality monocrystalline films with specific properties. Accurately controlling film growth, doping, and heterostructure formation has turned the method into a crucial component for the semi-conductor industry, enhancing the performance, scalability, and integration of semi-conductors.
Having devoted their thesis to this topic, Justine and Marvin received awards for their innovations.
CEA-Leti invites decision makers on the lookout for innovative and promising chip-based R&D, as well as editors, analysts and entrepreneurs to peruse the institute's reader-friendly "2023 Highlights" report
At CEA-Leti, researchers benefit from a rich ecosystem that facilitates sharing views around major societal challenges. Innovation also requires knowing how to inspire future talent. In Europe, Thomas Ernst is convinced that one of the challenges of decades to come will "involve mobilizing future generations around the new issues from the great ‘technological adventure".
The Epicool project is investigating the use of optics to cool epileptogenic areas in the brains of epilepsy patients resistant to other treatments. A prototype implantable device is currently being developed and will be miniaturized before animal testing begins.
MEMS and NEMS—micro- and nanoelectromechanical systems—are tiny devices like sensors, actuators, and micromirror arrays, with moving parts that are sensitive to a physical quantity like speed, pressure, or direction. They convert this physical quantity into an electrical signal, which can, in some cases, operate an integrated micro-actuator.
They are the hundreds of unit structures, ranging from 5 to 50 µm that can be seen on the surface of most insect eyes. These microlenses, which comprise an anti-reflective (AR) architecture, help a large amount of a light source converge toward photoreceptor cells, thus facilitating light trapping in dark environments. But that is not all, as these anti-reflective nanostructures also enable a surface's self-cleaning feature. For arthropods, this is a question of survival, while Raphaël sees it as a source of inspiration for improving energy efficiency in devices such as photovoltaic panels or imagers, which could greatly improve the trapping of light.
The field of satellite technology is undergoing a revolution with the development of “New Space” and miniaturized antennas. As space becomes increasingly crowded and raises the need for optimized power directions, the ability to reduce the size and weight of satellite antennas while maintaining their performance is essential. Marwan Jadid delivered encouraging results during his presentation, showing how these advancements are expanding possibilities for applications and services that were once thought impossible.
Human and animal health and the environment are inextricably linked. CEA is developing enabling technologies to support an integrated approach that spans diagnostics, therapeutics, prevention, and monitoring.
Advanced 3D packaging is a complex technology that is expected to become increasingly important in packaging a wide range of electronic devices in various fields such as IoT, AI, or medical fields. Finding viable solutions to meet the growing global demand for new integration developments has therefore become relevant.
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.
