Speeding innovation for industry
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, contributed to the development of the Gravity interferometer. The instrument, which is installed at the ESO’s* Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI) in Chile, makes it possible to observe the stars gravitating around the black hole in the center of the Milky Way.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
