Demolition on the Vercors Wing of Building 10.05 started in mid-October; rehabilitation work will begin as soon as the demolition is complete. The Vercors Wing was originally set up to house thermohydraulics lab facilities. A total of 3,000 sq. m is being rehabilitated to house around 100 INAC researchers starting in the fall of 2018. Some 200 researchers from INAC have already moved to the building’s Chartreuse Wing.
The €8.5 million project (which includes €2 million for new equipment) is being financed by the French and regional governments and the CEA. The labs in Building 10.05—to be called MINATEC Labs—will house all INAC researchers investigating and modelling the phenomena (electron spin, photons-on-chip, and quantum electrons) that will underpin tomorrow’s electronics.
