Speeding innovation for industry
News | Cross-functional disciplines
New insights into the mechanisms that underpin the dissolution of the components used in lithium-ion batteries have resulted in the development of an improved recycling method.
List, a CEA Tech institute, developed a mathematical model to improve medical imaging protocols so that the lowest possible dose of ionizing radiation can be used without negatively affecting the reliability of the diagnosis.
Primosens is a miniaturized and portable gas chromatography system developed under a French government CBRN-E counterterrorism program. It can detect the presence of a given gas in a mixture right at the testing site. The advance also offers potential for use in fields other than counterterrorism.
Reducing the thickness of the silicon wafers used to manufacture photovoltaic cells is one of the solutions researchers are investigating to lower production costs—but only if it doesn’t weaken the wafers.
A solution to help mainstream hearing-impaired students has been implemented in research conducted under the Y.SPOT project to promote collaborative innovation to respond to the major challenges facing our society today and in the future.
Arcure, founded in 2009, develops 3D vision systems for industrial and construction vehicles with the support of List, a CEA Tech institute. The company recently completed its initial public offering. We spoke to List artificial intelligence, language, and vision expert Patrick Sayd, who develops the image-analysis-based pedestrian-detection technology Arcure uses in its products.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, was selected to supply micro-coolers for CERN’s LHCb experiment, one of four conducted on the synchrotron’s main ring. Leti had previously contributed to the NA62 experiment at CERN.
The French National Solar Energy Institute (INES) developed and tested an energy management system coupled with battery-based energy storage. The solution is currently being rolled out at the Sainte Rose wind farm in Guadeloupe.
Parametric design optimization can improve heat-exchanger performance. A tool suitable for use in industrial environments was developed to address the multi-scale and multi-physics aspects of heat-exchanger design.
The ERC-backed My Cube project is setting its sights on the first-ever in-memory computing technology. The goal is to be able to carry out simple computations directly in a circuit’s memory.
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.
