NanoMaDe Group - Overview
Responsable: Costel Sorin Cojocaru
NanoMaDe – NanoMaterials and Devices activity has been initiated in 2003 and renewed in 2007. Its scientific area is centered on Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies (NST) with particular focus on nanomaterials.
Identified in 2009 by the European Commission as a key enabling technology (KET) providing the basis for further innovation and new products, with substantial longer-term economic and societal impact (product revenues estimated to reach $2-3 trillion by 2015), the NSTs associate many traditional scientific fields (physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, electrical engineering…) in an interdisciplinary, sometimes transdisciplinary approach. It becomes thus difficult to precisely identify a scientific boundary of a given NST topic. See for example: USA Congressional Research Service - The National Nanotechnology Initiative-2012
NanoMaDe covers research topics related to:
Synthesis and Fabrication
- Four CVD reactors dedicated to carbon nanotubes and semiconductor nanowires synthesis.
- Particularly one PE-CVD (four different geometries and three types of CVD chemistry) reactor is dedicated to oriented carbon nanotubes synthesis.
- Two of these CVD reactors are installed in the Thales R&T clean room facility.
- One full electrochemistry bench.
- One fully customizable inkjet bench for the CNTs deposition (Dimatix).
- One last generation SEM facility as well as TEM and AFM/EFM characterizations.
- RAMAN spectroscopy.
- One SAFEM facility that allows studying the electrical/field emission properties of individual nano-objects as well as a full in vacuum, variable temperature, microprobe electrical characterization bench. (Keithley 4200 Parametric Analyzer)
