Abstract:
CEA-Leti and III-V lab, a joint lab of Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs France, Thales Research and Technology and CEA Leti, today reports successful results after the first year of their collaborative research programme. The enlarged partnership in the III-V lab is developing researches for applications in telecoms, industrial control, environmental testing, defence, security. The new public-private partnership combines the advantages of III-V semiconductor and silicon technologies to open up new research perspectives and applications.

CEA-Leti and III-V lab reports significant results after one year of collaborative research programme: The partnership has leveraged the expertise of the different players in optoelectronics, microelectronics and heterogeneous integration

Grenoble, France | Posted on May 9th, 2012

In an effort to bring the performance benefits of III-V components on to silicon CMOS platforms, the partnership leverages the different expertise and know-how of Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs France, Thales Research and Technology and CEA-Leti in optoelectronics, microelectronics and heterogeneous integration, to innovate in four primary areas of research and markets. After a year, the III-V Lab has already enabled the rapid development of a common platform for optoelectronic and microelectronic technology. CEA-Leti and III-V lab are able to unveil the first results:

Photonic integrated circuits (PIC) that gather the active and passive functions of III-V and silicon for high-speed telecommunications and data transfer. For the first time, a tunable laser source has been integrated on silicon, which represents a key milestone towards fully integrated transceivers. CEA-Leti and III-V lab have now made a significant breakthrough in its development by integrating on the same chip complex devices such as a fully integrated transmitter working above 10Gb/s or a tunable single wavelength laser.

Near-infrared imaging for security and defence applications. The III-V lab and LETI are developing new types of detectors with increased resolution and operating in eye-safe region of the infrared spectra. They have demonstrated a fully operating imaging system, and developed the first elements of the molecular bonding of the retina on the reading circuit, a step required in order to lower significantly the cost of the system.

A new generation of cost-effective, multi-spectral, compact, ultra-sensitive, highly-selective gas sensors for use in security, industrial process control, and environmental monitoring. Thanks to the collaboration between LETI and III-V lab, it has been possible to demonstrate the basic passive components required for the realisation of the PIC based gas sensor.

The high-power GaN-based microelectronics research program has demonstrated the first results on high mobility transistors with low leakage and normally OFF architecture, and the realisation of the first high power driving systems.

"The collaboration between LETI and III-V lab creates a unique environment in terms on complementarities of competences and technologies" explained Salvatore Cinà, Deputy Head of the Optoelectronics Department at CEA-Leti. "It allows for the integration of the optoelectronics and high mobility properties of the III-V materials on the advanced 200 and 300 mm microelectronics platforms of Silicon, allowing for the large scale development of advanced integrated circuits"
