CEA will participate in the project providing its competences by providing a complete organic CMOS technology, in the experimental characterization of the electrical behaviour of semi-conductor devices (TFTs, interconnects, sensors), and the production of compact electrical simulation models for the devices that will be integrated in the i-FLEXIS system (leader of WP4). CEA will also participate in the design of the amplification and readout electronics that will convert the information provided by the photonic sensor in a usable electrical signal, according to the requirements of the electronic technology that will be used. Finally, CEA will produce the scaled-up 10x10 sensor array i-FLEXIS prototype, integrating the best identified sensor unit configuration and the optimized readout electronics. The layouts will be generated, the subsequent masksets will be fabricated, and the prototypes will be produced.
The CEA is an internationally recognized technological research organization in the domains of energy, information and health technologies and defense. Its LITEN Institute (850 people, 550 patents) is a major Beneficiary of fab to lab R&D with 350 collaborative research contracts in course this year mainly focused on the following industrial applications :
- Technologies for motor vehicle transport, e.g. electric vehicle (fuel cells, Li batteries, production of hydrogen, purification, development of biofuels...)
- Solar energy for building (development of rank solar Si, increase in the output of the photovoltaic solar cells, electric systems, thermal systems, building integration...)
- Mobile electronics and high Technology industry (micro energy sources, printed organic electronic devices...).
CEA/Liten facilities include:
* Lab scale clean room (300m², substrate format 110x110mm²) fully equipped with vacuum and printing equipment dedicated to printed electronics development TRL1- TRL4.
* PICTIC Pilot Printing Platform for organic electronics = 400m² clean room, set of printing equipment compatible with sheet format : 320mmx380mm. PICTIC is the French Printing platform for Organic Electronic to bridge the gap from lab to fab. PICTIC is open to industrials Beneficiaries for scale-up development and prototyping TRL4-TRL6.

obtained a PhD degree in Physics. He has been working in the field of Organic Electronics since 2007, and held before various positions at major Silicon Microelectronics Companies (Alcatel, Applied Materials, ATMEL). He is currently leading the Printed Electrical Component Laboratory devices. His team is in charge of developing the Sheet-to-Sheet printed organic CMOS technology. He held 4 patents and published more than 20 papers.


received the M.S. degree in Microelectronics and Telecommunications from the "Ecole Polytechnique Universitaire de Marseille", France, in 2004 and the Ph.D. degree in microelectronics from the University of Provence, France, in 2008. Her Ph.D. work was carried out in CEA-LETI and ATMEL Rousset, France, on the integration, characterization and modelling of silicon nanocrystal memories. Since 2008, she has joined CEA-LITEN, France to work on the electrical characterization and modelling of organic transistors on flexible substrate. She is the co-author of more than 20 papers in international journals and conference proceedings.

obtained an MS degree in Electrical Engineering in 2001 and a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering in 2004, both from the Grenoble National Institute of Technology (INPG). He has been working in the field of silicon microelectronics, holding various positions at design houses and EDA supplier companies, before moving to printed and organic electronics since 2010. He is currently working in the Printed Electrical Component Laboratory, focusing on device physics, electrical characterization, compact modeling and design kit production. He is also interested in the field of volatile and non-volatile memories, and more specifically SRAMs. He is coauthor of more than 30 papers in international publications and conference proceedings.
