Researchers have succeeded in coupling a semiconductor quantum dot to a vibrating wire. The quantum dot is then able to detect the mechanical vibrations of the wire with very high sensitivity. This result, obtained within a collaboration between INAC and the University of Basel, opens new ... More »
Several groups have already reported the fabrication of nanotubes, but such structures exhibit usually poor light emission performances. Indeed, the surface states and defects favor the non-radiative recombination processes that quench light emission. To overcome this problem, we have developed a ... More »

A new class of optoelectronic devices, such as single-photon sources, is based on semiconductor quantum dots (QDs) embedded in a photonic structure. Nowadays, the best QDs are still obtained via a self-assembly process: these emitters are thus randomly located in the structure. Pinpointing the ... More »
Leti and Inac received EARTO 2016 Innovation Awards for their new 3D LED. Offering a better price/performance ratio, this new technology will be commercialized by Aledia - a Leti spin-off. The EARTO Innovation Awards 2016 was presented in Brussels, Belgium, by Jyrki Katainen, European ... 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 »

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 »

Synchrotron nanobeams opens new opportunities to investigate nanostructures with high spatial (sub-100 nm) and temporal (sub-50 ps) resolutions. Thanks to the parallel exploitation of multiple analytical tools (fluorescence, diffraction and  photoluminescence), it is demonstrated how hard ... More »

Julien Claudon, researcher at the "Nanophysique et semi-conducteurs" lab (CEA-CNRS joint unit) has been awarded the 2014 CNRS bronze medal, distinguishing the first work of a scientist which made him a talent specialist in his field. By this award, the CNRS encourages the pursuit of ... More »
Scientists from the FOM foundation (Foundation for fundamental research on matter), the University of Twente and at the Institute for Nanoscience and Cryogenics in France have shown that light sources which usually emit light randomly can be coaxed to emit an ultrashort burst of light at a desired ...
