With more than 30 years of experience, Leti is well-equipped to offer innovative technological solutions for imaging (sensors, cameras, systems) in a vast range of areas, from leisure to the space industry.
When the history-making Cassini spacecraft descended into Saturn's atmosphere for a fiery finale in September, two decades and two mission extensions after its launch, scientists at Leti could proudly say "mission accomplished".
Leti and the Astrophysics Laboratory at CEA Saclay had designed, tested and fabricated infrared detectors for Cassini's Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS). Spectrometers split light into different colors, like a glass prism, and CIRS was special because it was sensitive to invisible heat rays, or infrared light emitted by the planet, its rings and its moons.
Iprasense has just released its third product, one that leverages a lensless imaging technology protected by around a dozen patents. The company’s latest offering is particularly well-suited for high-throughput cellular screening in drug discovery.
Leti, a CEA Tech institute, has developed non-cooled spectrometric detector that can clearly distinguish breast tumor tissue from healthy tissue in mice at a glance.
For the first year, Leti will be present at IEEE Radio Frequency Integrated Circuit Symposium (RFIC) and IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Societyʼs 2017 International Microwave Symposium (IMS) in June, Honolulu. The institute will introduced its latest work for 5G with Foxy at Booth #1937 (IMS) and a strategic paper paving the way towards mobile millimeter-wave high data rate telecommunication systems. Leti will also co-organize a workshop with international partners.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
