Tomorrow’s spintronics could use 1,000 times less energy

  • News
  • Research
Researchers from Irig-CNRS and Thales published a breakthrough advance in spintronics in Nature. Rather than manipulating spin with a nanomagnet, they selected a ferroelectric material to do the job. Their novel approach uses 1,000 times less energy to write information. Like for ferromagnetic materials, the information stored is non-volatile (it is stored without the need […] >>

Covid-19 vaccine: Leti and its Lipidots® drug delivery system out in front

  • Innovation & Society
  • News
  • Research
Leti and IAB* started work on a Covid-19 vaccine. Their strategy is to attach SARS-CoV-2 messenger RNA to Lipidots®, the oil microdroplets designed at Leti. Lipidots® are the same size as the virus and have a strong affinity for the dendritic cells that trigger an immune response. And, because Lipidots® are very stable, they should […] >>

What if IoT antennas could be made even smaller without compromising efficiency simply by tuning their frequency? A PhD candidate at Leti did just that! She also developed an analytical model that is as reliable as today’s simulators. Leti fabricated an antenna whose size is no more than 1/15th of the wavelength, compared to the […] >>

A new and sustainable photoelectrode for hydrogen production

  • News
  • Research
Researchers from Irig, Institut Néel, and EPFL in Lausanne developed a sustainable electrode for the production of hydrogen by photoelectrolysis, a CO2-free process. This photosynthesis-inspired innovation uses non-toxic and abundantly-available materials, and features a p-type semiconductor interface that absorbs light with a molecular catalyst. The semiconductor material, a copper iron oxide, is covered with a […] >>
