Thesis, internship, and post-doc opportunities
Polar codes for 5G wireless systems
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0489
Error correcting codes are an essential component of any communication system, as they provide an effective solution for reliable communications over noisy transmission channels. Polar codes are a recently discovered family of error correcting codes, which are known to achieve the capacity of memoryless symmetric channels.
An imaging system for the characterization of the skin layers by diffuse reflectance
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0341
The skin is a complex organ organized in several layers (stratum corneum, epidermis, dermis) that provides a bidirectional exchange between the body and its environment. Access to these different layers is required to characterize and diagnose skin diseases such as cancer, psoriasis… Diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS) consists in illuminating the tissue surface while spectrally analysing the reflected light after photons interaction with the living tissues constituents.
MEMS Micro-systems encapsulation using 3D printing
Offer N°: SL-DRT-15-0771
Microelectronic extends its range of applications via the micro-systems comprising sensors, energy scavengers, high performance communication and low consumption modules. Thus, encapsulation and functional hermetic lid manufacturing are becoming more and more relevant. Indeed, metallic and polymer additive manufacturing (3D printing) allows more and more complex and heterogeneous design building and guaranty a good versatility and low costs.
Modeling of new spintronic devices: magnetic memories based on circular cross-section wire arrays
Offer N°: SL-DSM-15-0361
Spin based electronics (spintronics) exploits mutual interaction between magnetic media and electron spins in order to create new functional devices (for example, for mobile phone antenna or magnetic memories applications). The development of such devices requests a lot of modeling in order to analyze the experimental data and predict optimal working conditions.
