Hardware acceleration for homomorphic encryption
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0179
The emergence of cloud computing and cyber-physical systems has led to consider security in data treatment as a major concern. In order to insure the confidentiality of managed data, encryption is today widely used.
In 2009, C. Gentry  proposed the first fully homomorphic encryption system, enabling to compute preliminary encrypted data without decrypting them. This progress has opened a significant number of new industrial and research perspectives.
Monitoring of high temperature effects on CMOS circuits
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0083
Deep sub-micron technologies become unavoidable even for critical applications in fields like automotive or nuclear industry. This evolution may have an important impact on the reliability of electronic systems involved in such applications in the absence of pro-active mitigation approaches.
Correlations in TeraHertz quantum nanoelectronics
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-0074
Understanding the many-body correlations of interacting systems remains the major challenge of contemporary theoretical physics with applications ranging from the calculation of the proton mass (quark-gluon plasma) to the understanding of the origin of high critical temperature superconductivity. Extremely sophisticated quantum field theory techniques have been developed to tackle this problem. They involve tedious algebra, overwhelming bookkeeping and often uncontrolled approximations.
Light-matter coupling of a single quantum dot with a high-quality-microcavity
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-0092
Cavity quantum electrodynamics (QED) systems are test beds for quantum information science and, until recently, nearly all cavity QED experiments used a single atom in a high-quality-factor (high-Q) cavity. The advances of epitaxial growth of semiconductor quantum dots (QDs), namely atom-like two-level solid-state systems, opened the way to QED studies in semiconductor cavities such as micro-pillar structures or photonic crystals.
