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.
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.
Automatic and personalized management of the wellbeing of the person in his living place
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0653
Comfort is now a major issue. While great progress has been made over the past 20 years to enhance energy performances of buildings, building adaptation to the needs of the person remains poorly studied. Indeed, the overall comfort is specific to each individual at a given time, and this finding is compounded with frailty.
MEMS/NEMS sensors in liquid for biologcial or chemical applications
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0710
Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems are nowadays key players in various industrial fields. There is currently a strong need for MEMS/NEMS solutions enabling rapid detection of trace amounts of biochemical compounds inside a liquid sample. MEMS/NEMS operation inside a liquid media imply a very particular set of constraints. Therefore the previously developed solutions for MEMS/NEMS sensors in air cannot be generalized to sensing in liquid media.
