SYNCHROTRON X-RAYS AND NEUTRON RADIATION SERVICES
A key player in the high reliability market, the PAC-G provides companies with a broad spectrum of neutron energies (from 14MeV to thermal neutrons) for SEE testing, all with a homogeneous and adjustable flux. It also offers synchrotron X-rays micro and nanobeams for the assessment of SEE sensitivity of chips and fault injection.
The PAC-G offers access to neutron and synhcrotron X-rays imaging services at resolutions unique in the world. Available at the European neutron source (ILL) and at the European synchrotron facility (ESRF), these techniques help to unveil the hidden secrets of electronic devices either in the analysis of failure mechanisms or in the qualification of new products or processess. Phase-contrast imaging and in-situ/in-operando investigations are also possible.
PHYSICAL AND CHEMICAL CHARACTERISATION
Combining the high-end techniques available at the ILL and at the ESRF with the complementary state-of-the-art lab techniques available at the nanocharacterisation platform at CEA-Leti, the PAC-G is able to address inumerous characterisation challenges involving virtually any element on earth. A whole set of techniques is available for interface and thin film characterisation, crystal quality assessment, elemental analysis, stress and strain measurements and structural characterisation.
What is PAC-G?
The Platform for Advanced Characterisation Grenoble (PAC-G) offers advanced characterization 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 programme are the European neutron source ILL, the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility ESRF, the CEA-Leti, the Subatomic Physics and Cosmology Laboratory (CNRS-UGA) as research partners and STMicroelectronics, SOITEC and Schneider as industrial partners.MEET OUR TEAM
