Nanometric electrical wires will soon be here

  • News
  • Research
Molecular-size electrical wires will soon be a reality. Researchers from the Institut Charles-Sadron (CNRS, Strasbourg) successfully coated polymer semiconductor P3BT, or poly(3-butylthiophene), fibers with insulating nanotubes by two-dimensional self-assembly of liquid esters using a heterogeneous germination process. Researchers at INAC used atomic-force microscopy and transition-voltage spectroscopy to characterize the electrical wire obtained. They demonstrated that […] >>

New bacterial identification tool

  • Innovation & Society
  • News
  • Research
Researchers at INAC, Leti, and LTM recently developed a novel single-cell bacterial identification method that uses a SOI nanophotonic optical structure that concentrates light to produce a very intense electromagnetic field that can attract and trap a single bacterial cell. Fluctuations in the intensity of the light transmitted by the optical structure due to interactions […] >>

  • News
Leti convinced France’s telecommunications regulator ARCEP to issue a license for the institute to run a six-month trial (H1 2017) at 3.5 GHz with a bandwidth of 40 MHz. The frequency could be the first to be released for 5G network rollout, and Leti wants to use it for multiservice transmission tests on the MINATEC […] >>
