Photoactivation of iron nanoparticles vectorized by tumor associated macrophages to improve tumor treatment
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-1143
A novel approach for the treatment of tumors consists in using the interaction between X-rays and a drug which has been beforehand internalized into the tumor. This cancer therapy is based on the photo-activation of high atomic number elements, leading to a local dose enhancement delivered to the tumor cells by radiations. This dose enhancement is arising from secondary and Auger electrons created after photoelectric interactions.
Advanced plasmonics for the study of biological events
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-1104
The Spram, the LN2 (Sherbrooke) develop new and complementary optical approaches to measure biological interactions. New ideas are emerging from these recent progresses in advanced plasmonics and we propose to study the behavior of bacteria interacting with solid surfaces.
Development of low-k dielectrics for sequential 3D integration
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-1128
Low-k dielectrics are used for insulation of interconnect levels in integrated circuits. For new applications (sequential 3D integration), it becomes necessary to have low-k materials capable of withstanding high thermal budgets (up to 550 ° C). "Conventional" materials (SiOCH or SiCNH deposited by PECVD) does not a priori meet these specifications.
Quantum and non-linear optics in nitride microcavities
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-1071
During this thesis, the student will study by optical spectroscopy (photoluminescence) AlN optical microcavities (microdisks and photonic crystals) containing ultraviolet emitters (GaN quantum wells and dots). The general goal of the thesis work is to evidence quantum optics effects such as the microlaser regime or the strong coupling in nitride microcavities emitting in the ultraviolet.
