Currently, labs require at least eight hours to determine the most efficient antibiotic treatment for a given infection. SUPPLY, a new research project at CEA-Leti, hopes to revolutionize this process thanks to a novel method of analysis based on “optical tweezers”. The project aims to create a prototype that could enable labs to confirm a treatment in only two hours.
Ludwig Rotsen wanted to draw inspiration from life to create advanced nanotechnologies, and he has done an excellent job addressing his goal, confirming CEA-Leti's focus on always reinventing innovation based on available resources and on demand.
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 "2021 Highlights" report
GRENOBLE, FRANCE – Jan. 25, 2023 – Reflecting CEA-Leti's steady pursuit of developing silicon photonics and integrated optics for augmented reality (AR) glasses, the institute will update its progress on a variety of key technological building blocks such as retinal projection and holography via 15 papers and poster presentations at Photonics West 2023 in San Francisco, Jan. 28-Feb. 2.
As 5G technology is deployed around the world, researchers at CEA-Leti are already designing solutions to meet the needs of 6G wireless technology. By combining existing manufacturing processes and an innovative architecture, CEA-Leti teams have successfully demonstrated a solution for D-Band (140 GHz) wireless communications.
The CEA and Renault Group have jointly developed a new electronic power converter architecture directly integrated into the vehicle's charger. The result of nearly three years of research and the subject of 11 joint patents, this power converter , developed from innovative materials and more compact, will reduce energy losses by 30%, improve the vehicle's recharging time and guarantee the battery's durability. Better still, it will be bidirectional by storing energy from the electricity network.
2022 was a prolific year at CEA-Leti. The institution supported the creation of five startups, two in healthcare and the rest in quantum computing, LIDAR and water quality. Let’s take quick look at their technology and potential markets
Testing for contaminants like gluten in food products no longer needs to be done at a lab.
Thanks to a miniaturized, superdirective antenna associated with dedicated algorithms, CEA-Leti is able to read commercial RFID tags with record positioning accuracy in the reading range. This innovation opens the way for automated accurate inventory as well as the counting of goods or people and the surveillance of livestock.
CEA-Leti presented three papers at IEDM 2022 detailing its recent advances and future challenges in quantum computing using Si-based qubit devices with FDSOI technologies. A plenary talk presented the path towards scalable quantum computers with silicon technology. An invited paper presented CEA-Leti’s modelling approach in developing low-temperature FDSOI cryoelectronics and the third contributed paper shared the institute’s success in developing a strategy to perform electrical characterization at a large range of temperatures down to ultra-low temperatures
A CEA-Leti tutorial presented at IEDM 2022 highlighted promising advantages that resistive random-access memory (RRAM) technologies hold for implementing novel neuromorphic/in-memory computing systems for massively parallel, low-power and low-latency computation.
Siquance, a CEA/CNRS-inspired startup, was launched in Grenoble on the 29th of November, 2022. Co-founded and directed by Maud Vinet, Siquance aims to develop and commercialize a quantum computer built on advanced microelectronics technology and the expertise of European chip manufacturers. At its heart, this innovative startup hopes to become an avant-garde leader for France and Europe in the field of quantum computing.
The world's most influential tech event is back for another edition. For a new consecutive year, the CEA will be present at EUREKA PARK with a device including a technological innovation and 4 startups that allow to encompass three major transitions of the moment that are health, energy and digital. The CEA will also participate in CES UNVEILED LAS VEGAS on January 3, 2023 with the presence of the NIR demonstration and the startup Inocel. Meet the CEA at booth #60200 in Eureka Park!
The barn owl, a type of common owl, deftly uses its sight and hearing together to home in on prey. The bird’s performance inspired CEA-Leti researchers to develop a particularly efficient acoustic object location system that consumes up to 100,000 times less energy than conventional systems.
CEA-Leti recently completed an equipment collaboration with SET (Smart Equipment Technology) for its direct hybrid bonding die-to-wafer process that combines precise alignment (under 1 micron) and high throughput. In collaboration with Intel, CEA-Leti is also exploring another die-to-wafer process that could multiply current production speeds by four.
CEA-Leti research leads to improved MEMS micro-mirrors for vehicles. This innovative technology aims to detect car tires (15cm high) from a distance of 100 meters. These research results emerged from the European Vizta project and are protected by three new patents.
Whether it’s medical deserts, overcrowded hospital wards, or a lack of solutions for patients too sick to move, medical radiology is no stranger to today’s healthcare challenges.
CEA and Schneider Electric, the global leader in the digital transformation of energy management and automation, have agreed to extend their joint laboratory collaboration for three more years. The shared objective is to continue to test and fortify the security of world-leading process-and-energy technologies for greater resilience across industries.
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.
