On July 13th, 2018, Mario Bomers successfully defended his thesis entitled: Surface functionalisation of III-V semiconductors based plasmonics for surface enhanced infrared spectroscopy. On October 1st, 2018, Stefano Soresi successfully defended his thesis entitled: InP-based tandem solar cells integrated onto Si substrates by heteroepitaxial MOVPE. Both candidates were early stage researchers supported by the H2020 program of the European Union through the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Initial Training Network PROMIS (grant agreement No 641899, http://www.physics.lancs.ac.uk/promis/).
The three of the leaves are changing colors : red, yellow and brown! Our researches at nanomir keep travelling around the world to participate in differnt conferences: 44th Europena Conference on Optical Communication. Nanophotonics and Micro/Nano Optics International Conference 2018 - Rome-Italy 14th International Conference on Mid-IR Optoelectronics: Materials and Devices MIOMD-XIV - Flagstaff, Arizona - US
Three projects coordinated by scientists from the nanoMIR group have been granted by the French National Research Agency (ANR) within the 2018 call. These project deal with high operating temperature superlattice photodetector for the full mid infrared, silicon micro-resonators for gas sensing and vertical-cavity THz lasers. They will start early 2019.
The scientists of nanoMIR have participated to numerous conferences this summer, presenting a number of invited communications, oral communications or posters. Among those conferences one can cite: UK Semiconductors, 4 – 5 July 2018, Sheffield (UK). The International nano-optoelectronics workshop (iNOW 2018), 21 – 27 July 2018, Berkeley, CA (USA). The 34th International Conference on the Physics of Semiconductors (ICPS 2018), 29 July – 3 August 2018, Montpellier (France). 8th International Quantum Cascade Laser School and Workshop (IQCLSW 2018), 2-7
The 16th JNMO (national workshop on nano, micro and optoelectronics) have been held 13th – 15th May in Agay, France. The JNMO gather every two years the French scientific community dealing with the growth, fabrication, physics and integration of devices for microelectronics and optoelectronics applications (https://www.crhea.cnrs.fr/JNMO2018/). Olivier Delorme, a PhD student of the group, received the Best Poster Award for his poster entitled "Ga(In)SbBi Alloys For Mid-IR Applications: Growth And Characterization". The award committee was particularly impressed by his maturity
In our on-going effort to integrate mid-IR optoelectronic devices with Si platforms, we have recently demonstrated room-temperature operation of a quantum-cascade laser (QCL) grown on a Si substrate.
Le groupe nanoMIR est un leader mondial de la technologie des semiconducteurs III-Sb, c’est-à-dire la famille des composés III-V à base de GaSb, InAs, AlSb, InSb, leurs alliages et leurs hétérostructures.
Détection de molécules de vanilline par spectroscopie vibrationnelle exaltée à base de semi-conducteurs
Cette étude, publiée dans le journal Nanophotonics, montre la détection de molécules de vanilline en très faible quantité
