Managing the intermittent nature of renewable energy production is one of the challenges to grid integration. CEA-Liten, a CEA Tech institute, developed a decision-assistance tool to optimize energy storage and ensure better grid regulation for a variety of time horizons.
CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute, developed a module to prevent a new—and increasingly common—cyberattack known as a temporal attack. The module was presented at the IEEE Symposium on Security & Privacy 2020, and has been integrated into the BINSEC code analysis suite. During testing on real programs, it proved effective against these attacks.
CEA-Liten, a CEA Tech institute, recently used an advanced X-ray tomography technique to look deep inside lithium-sulfur batteries to understand the mechanisms that underpin degradation—new knowledge that could help improve battery performance and lengthen lifespans.
The 300 mm pilot line at CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, recently acquired advanced wafer defect inspection and review equipment to meet the needs of its industrial R&D partners.
CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, recently combined its MEMS and silicon photonics capabilities to develop a novel device capable of detecting particles within a size range that had been difficult to identify prior to this innovation. The research was conducted in partnership with CEA-IRIG.
Researchers from CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute, tested a novel hypothermia treatment for glioblastoma, a particularly serious type of brain tumor, at biomedical research center Clinatec.
In research conducted for a nuclear-industry equipment manufacturer, CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute, developed a new ionizing radiation measurement device. Built on the most advanced technology around, the device was designed to meet the requirements of use in nuclear power plants.
CEA-Liten, a CEA Tech institute, partnered with IBS on research for the ISICELL project to develop a technology for doping photovoltaic cells that is ready to scale up for manufacturing. The technology, which leverages an innovative method, simplifies PV cell manufacturing processes and improves performance.
CEA-List, a CEA Tech institute, is playing an active role in building the SHM (structural health monitoring) industry. The institute now offers development and testing support for SHM technologies at a new platform called SACHEMS.
Low-temperature (< 500 °C) transistor fabrication processes were implemented at CEA-Leti, a CEA Tech institute to demonstrate the integration of powerful CMOS systems in a world first. The successful implementation of these processes will pave the way toward sequential 3D integration that does not damage the chip or negatively impact performance.
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.
