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 »

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 »

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 »

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 »

It has been shown in recent years that mechanical stress can be used to tune the electronic and optical properties of semiconductor quantum dots. For instance, this approach has been implemented to adjust finely the emission wavelength of quantum dot single photon sources. In view of real ... 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 »

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 »

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 »

We have studied the growth and optical properties of AlGaN nanowires, a potential candidate for future ultraviolet light sources. We have evidenced that such structures behave as a collection of quantum dots due to short-scale composition fluctuations. Nanowires made of nitride semiconductors ... 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 »
