Flexible piezoelectric transducers based on self-organised GaN nanowires
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0415
The aim of the PhD thesis is to design and fabricate piezoelectric transducers based on GaN nanowires obtained by directed growth and integrated into a flexible technology. The candidate will carry out studies on both the fundamental level – on the material – and the R&D level – on the effect of the mechanical deformation of the wires which will enable high performing device optimisation.
Investigation of innovative transistor architectures for sub-7nm CMOS
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0488
The context of the thesis concerns the main topics of micro-nanoelectronics and the understanding of the physics involved in nano-transistors beyond 7nm node. This means to study devices with gate length below 10nm with three main challenges:
- Electrostatic control of CMOS transistors which determines the static and dynamic power consumption
- Performance related to the tradeoff between ON state current and parasitic capacitances
- Variability control for logic
Open-surface microfluidics for portable diagnostic systems and cell biology
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0383
Open-surface microfluidics, i.e. microflows in open grooves etched in a substrate, has been gaining momentum recently. The physics of such capillary flows is presently a topic of study. Two application domains are targeted: portable diagnostic systems and cell biology.
