Before the discovery of Australia, people in the Old World assumed that all swans were white, an unassailable belief confirmed by empirical evidence. The sighting of the first black swan unsettled people's expectations, derived from millennia of well identified patterns believed to last forever. This single observation illustrates the ever expanding frontiers of human learning and knowledge. 

At Leti, we praise incremental progress, but we continuously challenge ourselves to look for the black swan in our research. Our strategy relies on maximum creative investigation and recognizing non-conventional opportunities and innovative ideas. In this report, we would like to share some scientific highlights obtained on long-term exploratory research themes with high technological or societal impact. Our results will be presented along five strategic axes, aimed at capturing the complexity of the real world: 

  • Advanced materials: A driver of opportunities
  • How novel imaging techniques will revolutionize life, environmental and material sciences
  • Towards kinder and smarter medical approaches: New generations of stimulation, drug delivery technologies and monitoring systems
  • Energy efficiency at the device, chip, and board and system level: Ensuring the most efficient use of energy resources
  • Managing increasingly complex systems effectively and securely.

These results have been possible thanks to the continuous efforts and constant ardor of our scientific experts and students. We would also like to acknowledge our academic partners for the many years of faithful and fruitful collaboration.
