Phelma Formation 2022

"High Tech" platforms to get trained

The broad scope of topics covered by Phelma’s School requires important technological means. The presence of a broad scientific community in Grenoble provides the school with extremely varied topic possibilities in addition to its own technological means.

4 Phelma-specific technological platforms

These platforms, which allow the various teaching activities in the form of practical work and in design offices, concern the fields of EEA (electronics, electrical engineering and automation management), Materials, Physics, Biotechnologies, Chemistry and Electrochemistry.

Unique potential in France of intercollegiate technological platforms and "Great Instruments"

The CIME Nanotech

Set up on more than 2,800 m2, the Centre Interuniversitaire de MicroElectronique et Nanotechnologies (Interuniversity Centre of Micro-electronics and Nanotechnologies) is a network including 8 platforms:

  • Clean room: 350 m2 dedicated to micro and nanotechnologies
  • Electric characterisation 
  • Nanoworld: for images at nanoscale
  • Design and testing of integrated circuits
  • Communicating objects: Systems On Chip
  • Microwave frequencies and guided optics
  • Biotechnologies
  • Micro-systems and sensors

Many teachers at the Phelma School take part in the development and upgrading of experiments proposed by the CIME Nanotech.

The nuclear physics platform

This interuniversity practical work platform covers a broad field of nuclear physics (radioactivity, neutron physics and cosmic radiation), as well as its applications in the field of environment (search for pollutants at the scale of trace) and the medical field (tomography).

The Consortium of common technological means (Consortium des Moyens Technologiques Communs - CMTC)

This set of matter investigation means shared by several laboratories of the Grenoble site, is widely used by the students for electron microscopy and the structural study of materials (microprobe, X-ray diffraction and Raman spectroscopy).


The large European instruments of the Grenoble site

The students are granted a privileged access to these instruments in the scope of practical work or projects. This is a unique asset for the training in the most modern tools for matter investigation at nanoscale.
