Artificial proteins trained as nano-goldsmiths

Using directed evolution, two teams from CEMES and IB2C (Gif sur Yvette) have created and optimized artificial proteins that bind specifically to (111) atomic planes of gold. During gold nanocrystal growth, these proteins control the shape and crystal faceting and eventually their surface properties.

Ô-GST: Materials Science for Phase Change Memories

The ambition of the project is to provide European microelectronics companies with a foundation of knowledge in materials science to optimize the composition and processing of GeSbTe-based alloys used in the manufacture of phase change memories.

Mechanism of plasticity: when dislocations participate to the movement of grain boundaries.

Atomic scale simulations have shown that a dislocation absorbed in a grain boundary could operate as a source of disconnections and thus facilitate the migration of a grain boundary.
