Nems-Based Neutral Mass Spectrometry For High-Mass Species
What is Neutral MS?
The joint CEA-Leti and CEA’s Fundamental Research Division team is currentlyworking on decreasing time of analysis from several hours down to a few minutes by increasing the density of the nanoresonator array (from 20 to>1000 NEMS within an array). Team is also working on improving the sensor design to enable the analysis of a greater variety of particles, including those featuring irregular shapes (large aspect ratio).
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.
