Ioan Mihai MIRON, chargé de recherches CNRS à l'Inac : lauréat du Prix Espoir Institut Mines Télécom
Ioan Mihai Miron est récompensé pour sa contribution majeure à la découverte du retournement de l'aimantation induite par les couples de spin-orbite. Cette possibilité ouvre un potentiel significatif sur la réduction de consommation énergétique et la fiabilité des MRAM (Magnetic Random Access Memory), le seul type de mémoire non volatile compatible avec l'évolution en vitesse des derniers processeurs. Cette nouvelle mémoire devrait à terme se substituer aux mémoires de type SRAM (Static Random Access Memory), au plus près des processeurs.

GPU-accelerated BigDFT

GPU-accelerated BigDFT
Developed by the L_Sim group in the MEM laboratory, BigDFT is a density functional theory (DFT) massively parallel electronic structure code using a wavelet basis set with the capability to use a linear scaling method. Using Graphics Processing Units (GPU) can boost considerably BigDFT. The article 'Accurate, Large-Scale and Affordable Hybrid-PBE0 Calculations with GPU-Accelerated Supercomputers' (see https://arxiv.org/pdf/1712.07973.pdf) shows some capabilities of GPU-accelerated BigDFT. In order to simplify the BigDFT installation, we provide a Docker container for BigDFT in collaboration with the NVIDIA company.

12-month postdoc position opening at SYMMES on "Nanostructure of ionomers developed for hydrogen fuel cells investigated by scattering techniques"
A 12 months post-doctoral position is offered in the framework of the international ANR project NSPEM, between CEA, LEPMI and University of Simon Fraser Vancouver (Canada), dedicated to the development and characterization of fuel cells based on block copolymer electrolytes. This project aims at providing in-depth structural characterization of the electrolyte used both as proton-conducting membrane and ionomer in the catalytic layers by means of lab thermal/mechanical characterizations coupled to structural investigation by means of X-rays and neutron scattering experiments.

2-year postdoctoral position: Modeling silicon-on-insulator quantum bits

2-year postdoctoral position: Modeling silicon-on-insulator quantum bits
Quantum information technologies on silicon have raised an increasing interest over the last five years. CEA is pushing forward its own original platform based on the “silicon-on-insulator” (SOI) technology. The information is stored in the spin of carrier(s) trapped in quantum dots, which are etched in a thin silicon film and are controlled by metal gates. SOI has many assets: the patterning of the thin film can produce smaller, hence more scalable qubits; also, the use of the silicon substrate beneath as a back gate provides extra control over the quantum bits (qubits). Many aspects of the physics of silicon spin qubits are still poorly understood.

Alcohol: New Research published! (Open Access)
An approach for simulating phase diagrams of binary mixtures is presented, where a bulk liquid and its corresponding vapour phase are simulated by means of molecular dynamics using explicit polarisation. Time-averaged density profiles for the pure compounds and mixtures at different mole fractions provide information about the spatial distribution in the bulk liquid and the amount of evaporated species in the adjacent vapour phase. The activities in the liquid phase are calculated from the mean vapour phase densities at a given composition, providing a good qualitative agreement compared to experimental data and the precision of the method follows a previously developed Poisson model of evaporation.

New Research published
In the framework of our ERC REE-CYCLE Project, a microfluidic system combined with substrate integrated hollow waveguide (iHWG) vapor phase infrared spectroscopy has been developed for evaluating the chemical activity of volatile compounds dissolved in complex fluids. Chemical activity is an important yet rarely exploited parameter in process analysis and control. Access to chemical activity parameters enables systematic studies on phase diagrams of complex fluids, the detection of aggregation processes, etc. The instrumental approach developed herein uniquely enables controlled evaporation/permeation from a sample solution into a hollow waveguide structure and the analysis of the partial pressures of volatile constituents.

"The basics of 2D materials" - A 25 h series of courses in Grenoble
A 25 h series of courses devoted to the basics of 2D materials and research on these materials in Grenoble will be held from the 4th to the 8th of June, 2018.  The courses will be given by local actors. They are primarily intended for undergraduate students and young researchers, and are also open to other local staff with interest in this actively developing field. Four main topics will be covered: basic properties, materials science, analytical techniques and physical properties. Registration is free but compulsory, and must be completed before the 25th of May, 2018. Meals will be at the participants' expense, except for a lunch buffet offered the last day.

2-year postdoctoral position: Nano-silicon/graphene composites for high energy density lithium-ion batteries

2-year postdoctoral position: Nano-silicon/graphene composites for high energy density lithium-ion batteries
This postdoctoral fellowship is part of a Graphene Flagship H2020 european project on the energy storage applications of graphene. In lithium-ion batteries, graphene associated to nanostructured silicon in a proper composite helps increase the energy capacity. Indeed graphene wraps silicon, reducing its reactivity with electrolyte and the formation of the SEI passivation layer. It also maintains a high electrical conductivity within the electrode. The study will compare two technologies: graphene-silicon nanoparticles and graphene-silicon nanowires. The former composite, already explored in the above mentioned project, will be optimized in the present study.
