Simon Deleonibus (CEA Leti) honoured as 2006 IEEE Fellow

Posted on January 06, 2006

Professor Simon Deleonibus, Director of CEA Leti’s Electronic Nanodevices Laboratory, received this winter both international and national distinctions in recognition of his world-class career. November 2005 was memorable for Professor Deleonibus: he was first awarded the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Fellow grade on behalf of his contributions to nanoscaled complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) devices technology. At the end of the same month, Simon Deleonibus also received the “2005 French Technologies Academy Grand Prix,” a major award attributed each year to an engineer for "Major innovation, development and proof of usability by the industry."

Simon Deleonibus' carreer started at Thomson Semiconductors with a Ph.d. Degree in Applied Physics in 1981. Three years later, he co-invented a contact plug technology, which improved the speed and reduced the costs of microprocessors. This technology is used today as a standard process by the microelectronics industry and is used in all integrated circuits produced worldwide. In 1986, he joined the CEA Leti.

With his team at the Head of the Electronic Nanodevies Laboratory, he realized the World record of smallest transistor (1999). Doctor Deleonibus also gained an expert level recognition on technology modules like field isolation, especially on Flash memories. He is today strongly implicated in NanoCMOS research, and in international level conference program committees, teaching, training, etc.

About the CEA Leti:
The CEA plays a major role in research, development and innovation in three main fields: energy, information and healthcare technologies, and defence. Set up on 9 centres located all over France, the CEA benefits from a strong regional insertion and solid partnerships with other research organisations, local authorities and universities.

A laboratory of the CEA in Grenoble, the Laboratory of electronics and information technologies (Leti) is at the leading edge of European research on microelectronics and microtechnologies. It employs more than 900 people. With its 110 patents filed per year and its twenty-eight start-ups created or in the course of creation, it is one of the major partners of the industrial world. Instigator of the MINATEC micro and nanotechnologies innovation centre project, the CEA Grenoble is also one of its main partners with the Grenoble National Polytechnic Institute (INPG) and the local authorities.
