Wafer-level testing of photonic circuits speeds up development

  • MINATEC
  • News
  • Research
Optically-coupled photonic chips cannot currently be tested at wafer level. Instead, they must be cut, packaged, and then tested individually. CEA-Leti successfully demonstrated an automated testing solution that removes this hurdle. A custom probe from Teem Photonics ensures very broad bandwidth and unparalleled measurement dynamics of more than 60 dB. It is capable of characterizing […] >>

Bioimaging: quantum dots with fluorophore-like performance

  • MINATEC
  • News
  • Research
Regular quantum dots are more stable under optical excitation than organic fluorophores; however, the dots cannot be used in biological environments because they can contain toxic metals like cadmium and lead. Several teams of researchers at Irig are putting their heads together to overcome this hurdle. They synthesized core-shell quantum dots that contain three non-toxic […] >>

Lensless imaging could make phage therapy faster

  • MINATEC
  • News
  • Research
Researchers from CEA-Leti, Irig, and LTM recently worked with a team in Lausanne* to develop a lensless device capable of reducing the time it takes to identify active phages on antibiotic-resistant bacteria at least threefold. The large-area image sensor (24×36 mm2) reads the optical signature of areas occupied by bacterial debris. The technique could be […] >>
