from new phenomena to low power electronics
A very successful collaboration since 2006 involving leading research labs in the US (University of California San Diego) and France (University of Paris-Saclay and University of Lorraine) has resulted in a range of high-impact outcomes. These include co-funded US-French projects, co-organized workshops, regular faculty visits between laboratories, student exchanges, several high-profile publications and preliminary discussions on establishing joint or dual degrees. As a final outcome, an international associated Laboratory (LIA CNRS) on nanoelectronics has been launched in 2015. The primary goal of this LIA is to support advances along two main lines:
- Basic research on new emergent physics in complex materials that enables new concepts in low power nanoelectronics devices and efficient computing architecture.
- Education of the next generation of scientists and engineers in nanoscience and nanotechnologies.
- MOU agreements between UCSD, UPSaclay (ex-UPSud), and UL have been renewed.
- A student exchange agreement between UCSD, UPSaclay (ex-UPSud) and UL are being completed
- Eric Fullerton is Honoris Doctor of Universite de Lorraine
- 6 invited professor positions
- 7 Projects-Grants between the US and French partners (2 ANR-NSF, 1 Partner University Fund, 1 Marie Curie, 1 CNRS, 2 Chateaubriand)
- 8 jointly organized workshops: last in 2019 in Paris to renew the International Research Laboratory
- 20 students spent a total of about 70 months at Partners University sites
- 10 professors spent about 12 month at partners University sites
- More than 30 common journal publications including a number of high-impact publications
- More than 30 Invited talks at conferences on work resulting from the collaboration
4 laboratories in France and US:
