CMOS Image sensors embedding in-pixel sensing and energy harvesting capabilities
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0384
The aim of this PhD work is to explore new architectures of CMOS Image Sensors dedicated to very low power applications. These sensors will have to be an ultra-low power system with energy harvesting capabilities (photovoltaic mode).
Real-time calibration of a video stream on an embedded platform
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0386
This thesis investigates camera calibration methods in a real-time embedded context. The main goal is to propose an innovative processing architecture that enables execution of online autocalibration algorithms in single or multi-views. This architecture will be compliant with embedded system constraints (small footprint and low power consumption) and powerful enough to cope with the execution of applications with high reactivity requirements.
Ultrasonic Micro-transducers : High resolution c-MUTS
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0622
Capacitively actuated ultrasonic transducers (c-MUTS) are focusing the attention of R&D labs of major international companies. The applicative field for this type of MEMS is highly increasing especially in the biomedical and health domain, for cellular diagnosis and targeted medical treatment.
Development of Scanning Thermal Microscopy for nanoscale characterization and its application to the thermal optimization of phase change memories.
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0093
This project aims at developing a Scanning Thermal Microscope (SThM) for the characterization of materials and structures at the nanometric scale. This represents an important challenge at the international level since few teams are today able of performing absolute measurements of temperature and heat flows at this scale. The actual resolution of the SThM developed up to now allows to investigate objects that are of the order of hundred nanometers.
