For the past several years, the Franco-Peruvian organization Puya de Raimondi (headed by a CEA scientist) and the NanoAndes network have been fostering research ties between France and Latin America. This transatlantic collaboration recently marked a new milestone with the publication in Mexico of Física de semiconductores y componentes electrónicos—the Spanish translation of a book by Montpellier University professor Henry Mathieu and Leti engineer Hervé Fanet.
University students and researchers from Peru, Argentina, Mexico, Ecuador, Venezuela, and Spain translated the 13-chapter book for free. Robert Baptist, a Leti research director who did voluntary service in Peru, served as the book’s editor in association with Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México.
