Crystallization Kinetics of Nitrogen Doped Ge2Sb2Te5

Where it is shown that N bonding with Ge increases the viscosity of GeSbTe glasses and slows down nucleation and growth mechanisms during crystallization, two characteristics which allow to fabricate PCM devices of increased thermal stability.

Bioinspired time-temperature indicators

Beetles inspire the design of reflectors which in turn inspire the fabrication of time-temperature indicators that record the thermal history.

Nano-silicon antennas to capture infrared

Arrays of doped Si nanodisks for IR plasmonics

Single organic molecules for photonic quantum technologies

The control of light emission by single molecules diluted in solid organic matrices allows for the fabrication of quantum photonic devices such as sensors, transducers, and elements for optical quantum computing.
