Energy, COmponents, SYstems, Microelectronics

ECOSYM is a multidisciplinary team, covering fields from material chemistry to energy conversion systems. Developing innovative answers to the future needs of portable devices and power electronics is the team's research key point. Its' activities are mainly focused on the use of porous semi-conductors and wide bandgap materials such as SiC, GaN and ZnO in microelectronics and vibratory energy recovery systems. Furthermore, the team uses it's expertise in order to develop energy conversion and the management of macroscopic systems.

This research, needing high end facilities, is operated in the CERTeM – Technological R&D Center for Microelectronics, a technology center including a 450 m² cleanroom.

ECOSYM team focuses on four research operations:

Synthesis and applications of porous semi-conductors

Porous silicon microscopic view Synthesis, fonctionalization and characterization of porous semi-conductors, materials with a wide range of physical properties, and application in microelectronics.
