Nano-Engineering and integration of metal-Oxide-based nanostructures and their interfaces
Heads: Alain ESTEVE and Carole ROSSI PhD student representative: Florent SEVELY
The scientific and technological developments of the past two decades have seen the emergence of micro and nano-technologies. New capacities to organize the matter with atomic scale precision have made it possible to create new nanostructured materials (nanosheets, nanowires, nanoparticle-based nanostructures) with improved performances. NEO focusses on metal/oxide reactive materials for energy-related systems (heat generation, mechanical actuator, H2 production).
NEO conducts researches in two main research topics:
- Design and Integration of Nanothermites for pyroMEMS.
- Design and hierarchical assemblies of nanostructures for H2 production.
NEO is hosting a ERC Advanced Grant "PyroSafe" (2019-2024) on the Integration of new nano-engineered safe energetic layers with sensors and electronics to manufacture safety-critical microsystems
Additionally, NEO is currently coordinating:
- a chaire d’attractivité de l’Université Fédérale de Toulouse MUSE (MUlti-Scale Engineering: a platform for designing and manufacturing advanced oxide-based nanostructures and materials) both of them in collaboration with Yves Chabal and his research team from the University of Texas at Dallas.
- a joint laboratory with LACROIX RUGIERI, IMPYACT.
Our faculty, students, and staff are passionate about nanoenergetics and work together to continuously increase knowledge in reactive materials and foster innovation. Do you want to be a part of this adventure? Come join our team!
