L’ORÉAL-UNESCO WOMEN IN SCIENCE FRENCH NATIONAL FELLOWSHIP FOR DEVELOPMENT OF MICROFLUIDIC DEVICE FOR EARLY-STAGE CANCER
DIAGNOSTICS


Eloïse Pariset received the prestigious 2017 L’Oréal- UNESCO Women in Science French National Fellowship for her PhD project “Development of a microfluidic device using Deterministic Lateral Displacement (DLD) for biological sample preparation, towards the extraction of extracellular vesicles”. 

This innovative project uses microfluidic technologies 
to perform portable, standardized, and cost- and timeeffective sample preparation from a limited sample volume.

In particular, a technique called Deterministic Lateral 
Displacement (DLD) is used to perform improved filtration of blood samples and cell culture media. The DLD devices have been optimized to increase their sorting efficiency, which has been demonstrated with biological samples. Coupled with a characterization tool, they are very promising as a firststep of EV extraction for early-stage cancer diagnostics.

BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD AT THE 10th IEE INTERNATIONAL MEMORY WORKSHOP FOR WORK ON OTS SELECTOR DEVICES 



Anthonin Verdy was granted the Best Student Paper Award at the 10th IEEE International Memory Workshop, held in May, 2018 in Kyoto, Japan, for his paper entitled “High temperature stability and performance analysis of N-doped Ge-Se-Sb based OTS selector devices”. 

Targeting Crossbar Memory arrays, this work shows the 
optimization of a Back-End-of-Line (BEOL) selector device - based on Ovonic Threshold Switching materials (OTS) - making it compatible with temperatures typical of the BEOL integration. After annealing at high temperature, the leakage current of the selector of the Leti team is among the lowest reported so far in the literature, even after cycling.

34um pitch, 8.9mW, 190mK NEDT, TECless Uncooled IR Bolometer imagen sensor with column-wise processing”, which was co authored by S.Martin, W.Rabaud, É.Beigné, and A.Dupret of CEA.



HiTEN 2017 BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD FOR WORK ON TIME DOMAIN SENSOR INTERFACE




The International Conference on HighTemperature Electonics Network (HiTEN 2017) presented Emna Chabchoub with the Best Student Paper Award for her paper entitled “High Temperature, Time Domain Sensor Interface based on Phase Shifter”, which was co-authored by scientists from CEA-Leti, University of Sfax, and LIRMM.

The paper proposes a new sensor readout architecture 
integrated on a SOI technology dedicated to high temperature applications. The circuit is based on injection locked oscillators which convert the sensor output into a time shift rather than a voltage getting rid of the usual high drift of silicon components parameters at such high temperatures resulting in a robust solution.


BEST PAPER AWARD AT ICC 2017 FOR USING WAVEFORM TO RESOLVE 5G CHALLENGES




David Demmer received the Best Paper award from the IEEE International Conference on Communications (ICC), held in Paris in May 2017. The work features a solution to 5G challenges: a flexible waveform which provides a strong spectrum confinement and a backward compatibility to currently deployed LTE systems. 

The paper entitled “Block-filtered OFDM: a new promising 
waveform for multi-service scenarios”, is co authored by R.Gerzaguet, J.-B.Doré, and D.Kténas of CEA-Leti.

Co-authored by E.Mercier and P.Vincent of CEA-Leti, the 
paper describes how the fabricated circuit proves that FDSOI technologies are not only suitable for low power but also for high power RF circuit if the proper design technique is adopted. Furthermore, the paper demonstrates that cost effective integration, in a system on-chip perspective, is possible.

BEST PAPER AWARD FOR NEW CONCEPTS OF DEVICE INTEGRATION BASED ON HYDROGEN SILSESQUIOXANE



Loïc Gaben was recipient of the EUROSOI-ULIS Best Paper Award, held in Athens, Greece in May, 2017. The paper entitled “Hydrogen Silsesquioxane Tri Dimensional Advanced Pattering Concepts for High Density of Integration in sub-7 nm Nodes” was co authored by scientists from CEALeti, STMicroelectronics, and IMEP-LAHC.

The paper proposes new concepts of device integration 
based on the original properties of hydrogen silsesquioxane (HSQ) showing that its use could be also extended for building the whole transistor level including device lateral insulation, multi-work function layouts, self-aligned contacts and possibly the first layer of metal interconnects. The 3D lithography concepts explored in the paper allow for a drastic reduction of the total number of process steps required which could tip the balance in favor of the multibeam lithography over EUV.
