The Quantum Leti initiative

Quantum technologies harness specific resources described by quantum mechanics (like state superposition, entanglement, squeezed states…) for addressing practical applications such as:

Before 2017 various labs of  Leti were already starting to address these subjects in their research roadmaps.

From the beginning of 2017 the Quantum Leti initiative federates these research efforts while establishing cross-discipline links. This initiative aims to improve Leti ability to identify, nurture and develop new ideas associated with the advent of quantum technologies.

Currently some tenths of Leti research engineers are involved in this effort. We welcome talented students willing to join our teams for PhDs and postdocs on these ambitious and promising subjects at crossroads of cutting-edge physics and future applications.

- The Quantum Silicon Grenoble:

Grenoble is a unique ecosystem for quantum technologies development.On one hand, it gathers researchers with multidisciplinary skills:

  • Experimental physicists from the Institute for Nanoscience and Cryogenics (CEA-INAC) and from the Néel Institute (CNRS-NEEL)
  • Theoretical condensed-matter physicists 
  • Microelectronics researchers from the Laboratory of Electronics and Information Technology (CEA-Leti) with a broad expertise in silicon technology and integration, including device modeling and circuit design
  • Mathematicians and computer science researchers from UGA, INRIA and INPG

It benefits from longstanding relationships with the local industrial ecosystem especially in cryogenics and semi-conductor industry. And Grenoble is a vivid education ecosystem with more than 50000 students.

-  The Quantum Engineering program:

To bring together Grenoble's research teams and contribute to their dynamic, Univ. Grenoble Alpes launched in 2017 the multidisciplinary program Quantum Engineering. In addition, an ambitious doctoral training program, GreQue, is funding 25 PhDs in public research and industry, in support of a Marie Sklodowska-Curie European contract.
