AWARD - Best Poster Presentation @E\PCOS 2022

The impetus for CEA-Leti innovations always begins with academic and industrial needs. Anthony Albanese’s research on amorphous chalcogenide materials for highly nonlinear on-chip components confirm CEA-Leti’s expertise at the forefront of More than Moore solutions.

Published on 7 November 2023
After earning a scholarship to study in Grenoble, Anthony went on to pursue a PhD at CEA-Leti, in collaboration with the Institut Carnot de Bourgogne. His aim was to explore energy efficiency issues through the inclusion of innovative materials in photonic systems while ensuring CMOS compatibility, which is essential to industrial transfer.

The chalcogenide materials he studied have promising optical properties and feature exceptional nonlinearity while retaining great transparency and good thermal stability. Special thanks go to Jean-Baptiste Dory, the former PhD student who launched the topic at CEA-Leti in 2016 under the supervision of Pierre Noé, at the Department of Advanced Material Deposition, and with Pierre’s close collaborators from the University of Bourgogne in Dijon (Benoit Cluzel), FNRS at the University of Liège (Jean-Yves Raty) and at the ESRF of Grenoble with the Italian CRG beamline LISA (Francesco d’Acapito). This research make it possible to improve performance in the following areas: quantum computing, infrared sensors, telecommunications, and so much more. 

CEA-Leti has the best to offer. As a doctoral student, you are given total autonomy with a wide range of cutting edge technological tools and can collaborate with world-renowned researchers. It's quite unique.
Anthony had the opportunity to keep discussions going on new issues surrounding amorphous chalcogenide materials for highly nonlinear on-chip components and phase-change materials for on-chip active components and neuromorphic computing applications in the course of two oral presentations at the MRS 2022 Fall Meeting, in Boston, where he was selected for the Third Place in the judging of student presentations in Symposium EQ04: Emerging Chalcogenide Electronic Materials – Theory to Applications. He was also able to share his knowledge and passion for materials engineering and solid-state physics through classes he gave to Master’s students at INP Phelma, an experience he found extremely gratifying.
