A new fingerprint analysis technology based on piezoelectric nanowires was developed in research conducted under the EU PiezoMAT project. The advance will pave the way for the development of sensors with resolutions in excess of 500 dpi.
CEA Tech Days in Japan took place on October 11 and 12 at the Keio Plaza Hotel in Shinjuku. CEA Tech Japan Representative Yann Gallais talked to us about this major event.
For the first time ever, scientists at Liten used XPS to observe changes in the chemical composition of lithium-ion batteries during operation. The purpose of the research was to gain a deeper understanding of battery degradation mechanisms.
Aircraft manufacturer Dassault Aviation used Frama-C, a software suite developed by CEA Tech institute List, to develop a method to detect software security vulnerabilities in real time. The method was implemented on critical security components used in an experimental ground support application for the company’s Falcon jets.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, recently outfitted the particle detectors for CERN’s renowned NA62 experiment with silicon cooling circuits. This remarkable achievement will pave the way for future cooperation with CERN on other higher-profile experiments.
Greenfield Technology turned to Leti, a CEA Tech institute, to develop an electronic delay component with picosecond resolution. The development will help the company address new markets from a position of competitive advantage.
A new software application capable of simulating how battery pack components’ electrical characteristics will evolve over several years has been developed by Liten, a CEA Tech institute. The software will be useful in accurately predicting battery pack performance over time.
Non-destructive testing (NDT) is crucial to controlling product quality and integrity. To be effective, NDT methods must effectively address the complex issue of interpreting results. List, a CEA Tech institute, has developed meta-modelling software that can automatically classify defects. The software will serve as the foundation for a future real-time diagnostics system.
Bolivia is home to a large proportion of the world’s lithium reserves. Bolivian state mining corporation YLB (Yacimientos de Litio Bolivianos) has acquired the equipment and know-how required to establish a local lithium industry.
In research conducted under the EU PLAT4M project, Leti, a CEA Tech institute, helped develop a new silicon photonics platform addressing optical communications for high-performance computing. The developments will reduce component costs while improving speed and energy consumption.
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.
