Global trade-offs in heterogeneous many-cores utilising local sense-and-react loops
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0376
The aim of this thesis is a global optimization of many-cores heterogeneous circuits. It will be based on a multi-level execution model taking into account reliability and energy constraints, allowing to develop a set of interfaces and services used by a global controller to implement its strategies on local resources
Crossbar memory architecture and design in emerging 3D resistive technologies
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0287
The thesis topic addresses the design of ultra-high density crossbar memory for Ultra-Low-Power embedded systems (Internet-of-Things, Machine-to-Machine). The goals are to drastically improve the performances (consumption & speed) and the integration density, compared to the existing FLASH-based embedded non-volatile memories, in order to fulfil the ULP embedded system specifications.
Man infertility related to oxidative stress
Offer N°: SL-DSM-14-0285
Over the last two decades, there is an alarming increase in the problem of man infertility in developing countries. For at least a part (about 50%) of the infertile men a possible explanation is related to oxidative stress and thus to the presence of elevated levels of oxidative damages onto the DNA of the spermatozoa.
Metamodelling and optimization for nanophotonic devices
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0288
The design of micro and nanophotonic devices involve many variables in terms of both geometry and physical properties of materials. It is an arduous process, which may require a considerable number of trials. Thus, the designer resorts increasingly to numerical optimisation, which, in principle, allows to faster attaining the specifications requirements. However, the modelling needed to optimise the microcomponents involves solving Maxwell's equations accurately in three-dimensional space.
