MIT chooses Leti to supply suspended microresonators

The news dates back to early 2014 and has been kept under wraps for almost a year. A Massachusetts Institute of Technology biology lab is turning to Leti to develop some highly complex suspended microresonators. After receiving the initial components, which delivered satisfactory performance, the lab decided to switch foundries, and has now placed an order for 1,500 of the resonators with Leti for June. The resonators boast a beam that vibrates at several hundred kHz and microfluidic channels through which...

MINATEC soon to get the keys to two brand-new buildings

The MINATEC campus will soon get 11,500 sq. m of additional space with the completion of two new buildings: the Competency Center Building (BCC), which will house 550 staffers, and the 700-capacity Phelma Auditorium and Conference Center. The Competency Center Building (BCC) will offer 10,000 sq. m of floor space on eight levels and will house some 550 staffers. CNRS teams will occupy the first floor, while CEA-Leti will move in to the rest of the building. The CEA-Leti executive suite will be...

Leti sensors used in future bio-artificial liver

The EU FP7 d-LIVER project aims to develop a bio-artificial liver (BAL) support system for patients suffering from liver failure or awaiting a transplant. The project, launched in 2011, brings together a dozen partners, including CEA-Leti, which is supplying sensors for the real-time monitoring of ammonium ions. Leti’s sensors are currently accurate to within 8% to 10%, and the goal is to bring that margin of error down to 3% or 4%. At their present stage of development, the components offer the same...
