  • [January 2019] EU H2020 SmartVista Project 2019-2020 Started with Kick-off Meeting in Cork, Ireland!

    In SmartVista project, we aim to develop a smart multi-modal sensing platform for health vital signs monitoring through the development of 1D/2D nanomaterials based sensors, on-chip thermal energy harvester, novel printable battery system and wireless platform enabled by 3D heterogeneous integration of these subsystems. The SmartVista sensors will reduce the risk of sudden deaths, due to different types of cardiovascular disease, by enhanced detection and diagnosis performance. Partners are Tyndall/University of College Cork, CNRS (LIRMM, IES and Phymedex labs) Fraunhofer EMFT, NovoSense and Analog Devices.

  • [Apr 2018] On behalf of Microelectronics Department at LIRMM, Dr. A. Todri-Sanial hosted the Seminar on Quantum Computing on April 18, 2018.

    Quantum computers promise to run calculations far beyond the reach of any conventional supercomputers. They might revolutionize the discovery of new materials by enabling powerful simulations at the atom level. Or they could shake-up cryptography and security by making safe codes. There is even ambition to boost artificial intelligence by crunching more data efficiently. This seminar brought together experts from physics and engineering to discuss on the recent progress on key enabling technologies from quantum device to system.
