BACCARA discovers the secret of capacity decay in Nano-silicon-based Lithium-ion Batteries
Scientists have performed a thorough analysis of promising silicon-based electrode technology with regard to Li-ion battery decay in the course of charge/discharge cycles. Oversaw by the CEA, this project was carried out through a balanced partnership between three academic and as many industry partners. 

Lithium-ion batteries are increasingly common in our everyday lives. Their high-energy density, made possible by the lightweight element lithium, has rendered them essential to portable electronics (...)

SAGE develops digital tools for big data analysis and storage
The StorAGe for Exascale Data Centric Computing (SAGE) system, researched and built as part of the SAGE project, aims to implement a Big Data/Extreme Computing and High Performance Data Analytics capable infrastructure suitable for Extreme scales - including Exascale and beyond.

With the proliferation of massive data sources (from scientific instruments, sensors, or social media), the ability to analyse and integrate this data into computational simulations in order to derive scientific and innovative insights is becoming essential (...)

Biocapan provides an invisibility cape for functioning transplants
The H2020 Biocapan project, coordinated by the CEA, is developing an innovative cell therapy to supplement a poorly functioning pancreas in patients with type 1 diabetes. The two major goals of this therapy - which involves the use of a revolutionary biocapsule - are to prevent transplanted cells from being rejected and to enable them to perform their function. 

This will enhance patients’ lives, in particular by eliminating the need for immunosuppressive treatments, which often have severe side-effects. (...)

Vessedia verifies IoT safety and security
Our Internet era is witnessing a deep transformation concerning social and human behavior towards new technologies. The benefits are numerous, for the individuals, organizations and industries, but threats and dangers are too. The Internet of things (IoT) meaning connecting objects with each-others via the web comes with complex software-driven systems connected to the Internet too. 

That is where the benefits but also the threats come from, opening the way to infinite possibilities for hackers and other malicious actors. That is the reason why the European project Vessedia is developing (...)

Spice : Heralding in Universal Memory

Using optical rather than electrical technology to write to MRAM magnetic storage media would unlock a thousandfold speed increase and slash power consumption by a factor of 100. Spice aims to tackle this challenge and promote the use of non-volatile memory near processor cores. A computing revolution in perspective...

In 2011, scientists from Radboud University in Nijmegen (Netherlands) published a paper in Nature, announcing their successful use of ultra-short laser pulses to invert a material’s magnetization status (...)
