In the presence of Delphine Gény-Stephann, State Secretary to the Minister of the Economy and Finance, LNE-Nanotech inaugurates, on 27 February 2018, a new institute dedicated to metrology for nanotechnologies.
LNE-Nanotech will benefit from LNE's expertise and state-of-the-art facilities, recognized at the European level, and will improve our knowledge of nanomaterials and nanodevices while putting them at the service of society and the industry.
Nanomaterials and nanodevices are booming and herald increasing potential applications, particularly in the key industrial sectors of materials, medicine, electronics and energy. Nanotechnologies are thus called upon to play an important role in the advent of tomorrow's connected society, as well as in the ecological and energy transition. Europe and France have made it one of the pillars of their innovation programs.
The technological breakthrough associated with nanosciences and nanotechnologies lies more in the tools to be developed to represent, analyze and measure matter on this reduced scale than in manufacturing itself. These developments are also essential for assessing the risks associated with these new technologies (environmental, health, etc.).
To meet these challenges, LNE has decided to organize its activities on nanomaterials and nanodevices around an institute dedicated to nanoscale metrology issues: LNE Nanotech.
The institute aims to become a reference operator, both nationally and internationally, on the subject of the characterization of nanomaterials and nanodevices. The objective of this institute is to study the characteristics of nanomaterials and the various properties relevant for nanodevices (thermal, electrical, etc.), in order to provide industrialists as well as research and analysis laboratories with the tools necessary for the reliability of nanometer-scale measurements.
