CEA-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.
GRENOBLE, France – March 18, 2021 – CEA-Leti scientists have developed a lensless, infrared spectral-imaging system for medical diagnostics. The first application is cancer detection in the tissue section and the second is the identification and discrimination of microorganisms, such as bacteria. Presented in two papers at the Photonics West 2021 Digital Forum, the label-free technology also could eliminate sample preparation in a reliable and user-friendly device that may foretoken automation of some diagnostics.
GRENOBLE, France – March 2, 2021 – CEA-Leti, a technology research institute of CEA Tech, will present 14 papers during Photonics West 2021, March 6-11, including an invited paper, "Advanced roughness characterization for 300mm Si photonics patterning & optimization".
Aledia, a French startup pioneering a disruptive technology for microLED displays, today announced it has manufactured the world's first microLED chips produced on 300mm (12") silicon wafers. The company, which developed its breakthrough technology on 200mm (8") silicon wafers over the past eight years, will produce the chips on both 200mm and 300mm wafers.
The miniature, hyper-sensitive photoacoustic sensors being developed by the Redfinch consortium, which includes CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, can detect even the tiniest gas leaks in real time, making them ideal for petrochemical plant monitoring.
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.
