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.
New high temperature (>250°C) integrated sensor interface architectures in SOI technologies
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0362
The goal of this thesis is to study the full integration of a high temperature (T> 250°C) sensor interface in an SOI technology in order to contribute to the realization of autonomous and communicant sensor nodes for harsh environment application like in-service aerospace jet engine monitoring or well drilling.
Event-based energy management infrastructure : application to a sense&react mixed-signal architecture
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0375
Future applications in the context of internet of things (IoT) will require an efficient energy management considering the very low energy budget of that kind of circuits. In this frame, this PhD work objective is to propose a complete energy management integrated infrastructure, dissociated from the functional part of the IoT node.
