Highlights 2012

November 2012

Contact : Gilles Gaudin
We developed at the PTA a new 3D magnetometer concept, fully integrated, more compact, more accurate and more efficient than current solutions. We fabricated a first generation prototype. This magnetometer is perfectly suitable for mobile applications of spatial localization requiring a large ... More »

Spintronics is an emerging field of research bridging magnetism and electronics. The spins of the electrical carriers are used to carry, store and process electrical information. This information technology paradigm relies on the control of spin currents, ie different flow of spin up and spin down. ... More »

The compound URu2Si2 is the object of intense investigations for twenty years because the nature of the phase transition observed at T0 = 17.5 K in this compound still remains a mystery despite an impressive experimental effort. Our polarized neutron diffraction measurements suggest that the ... More »

Contact : Emmanuel Picard
Today microelectronics techniques allow the combination of optics and microfluidics on the same chip to handle colloidal objects. The SiNaPS laboratory, in collaboration with the Near Field Optics Group of University of Burgundy and the Microelectronics Technologies Laboratory in Grenoble (LTM), ... More »

July 2012

The article Multielectron redox chemistry of lanthanide Schiff-base complexes written by researchers of SCIB/RICC lab makes the cover of Chemical Science June issue. This paper shows the benefit of using Schiff bases as ligands of lanthanide complexes for multielectronic ... More »

Contact : Michel Bardet
LiFePO4-based material is considered as one of the most promising for positive electrodes in commercial lithium-ion batteries. However, the reasons for the decrease in their electrical storage specifications during electrochemical cycles are not fully understood. Besides the structural and chemical ... More »

May 2012

Spintec Laboratory has recently developed a new method for preparing magnetic nanoparticles for biomedical applications. This method takes advantages from the know-how of the laboratory in the field of spintronics, and allows a control of the size, shape, and composition of the particles, which ... More »

April 2012

Spintec Laboratory, in collaboration with the Circuits Multi-Projects service, the Laboratory of Informatics, Robotics and Microelectronics of Montpellier and the Fundamental Electronics Institute, has developed a set of software tools to evaluate the gains that can be expected by introducing ...

Understanding and controlling the aging of the proton-conducting Nafion® membrane is one of the key points for the development of fuel cells. In collaboration with the LITEN and ENSAM Paris, we have shown that the mechanism of hygrothermal aging, previously observed ex situ with a nude ... More »
Contact : Michel Bardet
We have used high-resolution solid-State 13C NMR to better understand and optimize the conservation process of archaeological waterlogged woods by polyethylene glycol (PEG) impregnation via the  study of the molecular interactions between PEG and residual celluloses. We showed that the PEG ... More »
