Elaboration and transfer of tensile strained thin films
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0065
Applying tensile strain in a single semiconductor crystal (eg germanium) is a very promising way to tune it into a direct band gap semiconductor. This basic feature can be applied to major outstanding goals of semiconductor and mainly optoelectronic applications.
A2RAM cell: simulation, modeling and performance evaluation
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0112
The main idea of this PhD work is to simulate, model and optimize A2RAM memory cell. The first part will focus on A2RAM TCAD simulation in order to evaluate the impact of different technological parameters on the figure of merit of the cell. Special attention will be brought to retention time and so, to different leakage mechanisms. The second part of the PhD will be devoted to the A2RAM cell optimization with the introduction of new concept and/or innovant process brick.
Microvascular Network on chip
Offer N°: SL-DRT-16-0044
For many years the European commission seeks to minimize the number of medical and biological tests on animals. In this context, it is necessary to develop advanced alternative models, for instance in vitro models that better mimic biological tissues. These models would be highly relevant in applications such as the screening of therapeutic molecules (for cost reduction purpose) or for nanotoxicology studies.
