ORGANISO

Symmetry is a far-reaching concept in view of the generation of novel classical and quantum phases. Playing with the crystal and time (a)symmetries, as can be done in crystalline substances in the presence of a sizable spin-orbit interaction, has focused a great deal of research in the past years ...

OVATION

Activation of small molecules, such as N2 by metal-based complexes often occurs via mechanisms involving changes in redox state, spin state, bond breaking and formation. Therefore radical reactions are particularly suited for providing insights into such aspects...

CFph

Liquid pH measurement is of considerable importance in many areas.
In addition to the medical field (pharma/biotech) for which pH changes in body fluids may be the cause (or consequence) of a malfunction, the main areas in which accurate pH measurement is crucial are the agri-food industry, the chemical industry and the environment.

uNIQUE

Over the past thirty years, the remarkable technological advances in microfabrication processes have

thrust mechanical vibrations into the quantum realm. The intrinsic coherence of mechanical motion and the capability to couple it to other physical degrees of freedom hold promises of scalable hybrid quantum platforms...

DOCT-VCSEL

DOCT-VCSEL aims at demonstrating and implementing a new generation of MEMS-VCSEL swept-sources emitting at 850 nm and their integration in a highly miniaturized OCT system for skin pathologies detection.

Cutaneous cancer is currently the most commonly diagnosed type of cancers and its early diagnosis increases the chances of successful treatment...

PULSACION

Chip-scale atomic clocks (CSACs) provide unprecedented frequency stability within volumes down to a few cubic centimeters and power consumptions as low as 100 mW. In this framework, the ANR project PULSACION aims at providing novel solutions in order to improve the long-term frequency stability of miniature atomic clocks based on coherent population trapping (CPT)...

PhotoRest

The PhoRest project aimed at the engineering of surface coupled phononic resonators for a increased control of phonon propagation and coupling. The overall objective was to push forward an original  conceptual approach to design complex systems that could contribute to the development of disruptive Information and Communication Technologies based on advanced acoustic signal processing functionalites.

MicroStirling

 This project concerns the development of a micro-engine for energy harvesting. It is a collaborative project between departments of the FEMTO-ST institute (MN2S & Energy) and is the result of a collaboration with academic partners (SYMME laboratory at University of Savoie and UMI-LN2, University of Sherbrooke, Canada) on the development of a miniaturized Stirling engine for energy recovery.
