Specific equipment, resources and techniques

Laboratory researchers rely on shared equipment in experimental platforms


They allow :

  • To test accelerated aging of electronic components and assemblies.
  • To assemble and monitor components
  • To design and build mechanical assemblies
  • To analyze the constructions, the failures and to study the reliability of the components.


They allow :

  • To characterize, heat and control materials with microwaves
  • To conduct studies in biology at the interface of physics (bio-electromagnetism) and electronics (bioelectronics).
  • To study the human factor and the use of technologies.
  • To carry out tests for the development of vehicles of the future
  • To evaluate the reliability of optoelectronic and photonic devices subjected to harsh environments
  • To predict the life of energy storage systems To produce electronic devices based on organic semiconductors
  • To produce and study an alternative technology to Microsystems Silicon
  • To test and analyze failures of integrated circuits and laser beam systems
  • To electrically characterize components and integrated circuits in silicon or III-V technologies
