Nucleic Acids based-Architectures as Bio-Inspired Scaffolds for NanoTechnologies (Acronym: NatureTech)
Offer N°: SL-DSM-14-0311
Nature has demonstrated an extraordinary capacity to assemble complex nanostructures with multifunctional and high reliability skills. Among all these assemblies, Nucleic Acids are biopolymers which encode the complexity of all life forms on Earth by containing the genetic blueprint, are arguably the most powerful media known for the data storage and processing.
Sol-gel film integration into OLED passivation architectures
Offer N°: SL-DRT-14-0330
Optoelectronic devices such as organic light emitting diodes (OLED) are extremely sensitive to moisture and oxygen and thus must be encapsulated by thin-film barriers. It is therefore essential today to develop new thin film encapsulation layers whose processability is compatible with fragile organic devices underneath.
Nanoscale Analysis of the behaviour of the Si electrode of a Li-ion accumulator
Offer N°: SL-DSM-14-0331
Lithium is a pertinent material to store electrical energy for mobile applications. New generation of Li-ion batteries implies the use of novel electrode materials to increase performances as the security and the capacity. With a capacity 10 times higher than for the usual carbon, Silicum is a new pertinent material for battery electrodes.
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.
