Platform for Advanced Characterisation - Grenoble PAC-G

The single entry point for commercial services of characterisation
dedicated to micro- and nano-electronics innovation

SYNCHROTRON AND NEUTRON RADIATION

A key player in the high reliability market, the PAC-G provides European companies with a broad spectrum of neutron energies (fast neutrons with thermal neutrons) with a homogeneous and adjustable flux.

IMAGING

Unique 2D and 3D imaging techniques available at the ILL and ESRF help to unlock the secrets of electronic components, even in a closed enclosure.

PHYSICAL CHARACTERIZATION
THANKS TO DIFFRACTION TECNIQUES

The PAC-G gives access to a whole set of services used for the characterization of crystals, thin layers and multilayer deposited on crystalline substrates.

What is PAC-G?

Platform for Advanced Characterisation Grenoble (PAC-G) offers advanced characterisation services dedicated to micro/nanoelectronics innovation, set up within the framework of the Technological Research Institute Nanoelec, thanks the funding for future investments (reference ANR-10-AIRT-05).
The members of Nanoelec’s Characterisation program are the European neutron source ILL, The European Synchrotron ESRF, the CEA-Leti, the Subatomic Physics and Cosmology Laboratory (CNRS-UGA) as research partners and STMicroelectronics, SOITEC and Schneider as industrial partners.

Synchrotron X-rays Topography

The characterisation of crystals or layers deposited on a crystalline substrate can provide insight into their performance for electronic or other applications and help improve their quality.

The facility available at PAC-G offers a service portfolio of Bragg diffraction X-ray imaging techniques, providing quantitative and qualitative information on defects in single crystals.
