First-ever analysis of neutral particles by mass spectrometry

Researchers from INAC, Leti, and IRTSV recently completed the first-ever successful analysis of neutral particles by mass spectrometry. The scientific achievement, which took place right here in Grenoble, was praised by an article in Nature Communications. The researchers chose to bypass traditional spectrometry methods, preferring to use nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS), whose resonance frequency varies depending on the mass being supported. In this particular case, the mass was made up of...

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...
