SBT has developed a library to simulate cryogenic refrigerators, from hot compression up to the cryodistribution. This library allows to better understand the behavior of this machines, but also to optimize thanks to model-based-design approaches Each component of the library is described by ... More »

Inac has finished the development of its new generation of low temperatures measurement station (CABTR). They will be installed on Iter project.  To observe fast transients and quick cryogenic phenomena, researchers for Inac has developed a new instrument called CABTR (Centrale ... More »
An unprecedented detailed description of local cationic sites embedded within a Li-rich (Mn/Ni) layered oxide has been achieved by combining Solid-State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (MAS-NMR) spectroscopy of the lithium and a statistical model allowing to extract structural information out of the ...

Leti, an institute of CEA Tech, along with Inac, a fundamental research division of CEA, and the University of Grenoble Alpes have achieved the first demonstration of a quantum-dot-based spin qubit using an industry-standard fabrication process. Published in the November 24 issue of Nature ... More »
Researchers from INAC/PHELIQS (CEA Grenoble) and Kavli Institute of Nanoscience (TU Delft, Netherlands) have predicted the occurrence of topological transitions in multi-terminal Josephson junctions. The topology manifests itself in the trans-conductance between two voltage-biased terminals being ... More »

microelectronics industry has shrinked the size of transistors present in our computers and other electronic equipment, arriving to critical sizes on the order of ten nanometers. On the other hand academic researchers have developed a new paradigm for computing based on quantum physics for which ... More »

Electronic structure calculations based on the Density Functional Theory are widely applied to materials and molecules. Nevertheless, there are limited to systems with few hundred of atoms because the operation scaling is cubic versus the number of atoms. Thanks to the locality properties of ... More »

The writing in conventional magnetic memories based on magnetic tunnel junctions (STT-MRAM) is intrinsically stochastic : a large amplitude thermal fluctuation is required to trigger the siwthing of the storage layer magnetization. SPINTEC has shown that this stochasticity can be almost ... More »

Magnonic is an emerging research field, which aims at exploiting pure spin transport in magnetic materials. The elementary excitations are the propagating spin-waves, also called magnon, which are bosonic quasiparticles. The advantages over conventional electronic devices are a significant ... More »

At the interface between the strontium titanate and the lanthanide aluminate forms a 2 dimensional electron system. By using a dynamical spin injection technique, we were able to demonstrate a record conversion yield between spin and charge current in this system, moreover that is tunable in ... More »

These nanoscale magnetic textures have been observed at room temperature in materials compatible with the microelectronics industry by  O. Boulle and his colleagues from Spintec in Grenoble. These results break an important barrier for the use of skyrmions as nanoscale information carrier in ... More »

A CoFe based ferromagnetic alloy has been used in lateral spin valves to replace NiFe alloys, which are overwhelmingly exploited as ferromagnets electrodes in lateral spintronic devices. By using this second material, emitted signals are found to be one order of magnitude larger. In addition to ... More »

Spintronic concepts and materials are well known for their applications in data storage, magnetic memory and hybrid logic devices. Besides, they can also bring novel approaches for the realization of microwave components such as rf signal sources or rf detectors. These applications are based on the ... More »
Drug targeting is an attractive and powerful therapeutic strategy that is proposed to enhance drug efficacy and to decrease the many side-effects associated with systemic drug therapy. Indeed, it achieves specific drug accumulation in the diseased organ or cells. This strategy is exploited at INAC ... More »
