Leti has recently entered into a partnership agreement with ESRF to increase its usage of the D2AM beamline. The two research centers have agreed to share time on the beamline over the next five years in order to facilitate and speed its usage (under two months). Young scientists supervised by both centers will carry out joint research projects on the beamline, and the centers have already applied for funding from the French National Research Agency to study silicides for fully-depleted silicon-on-insulator (FD-SOI) applications.
The D2AM beamline can be used for spectroscopy, diffraction, and diffusion, and perfectly rounds out Leti’s characterization capabilities. It can be used with very high-brilliance synchrotron sources with variable wavelengths. Leti scientists intend to use it to observe nanometric layers and buried objects, for example.
