European metrology project GIQS kick-off (06/2019)
The European project GIQS (Graphene impedance quantum standard) aims at developing impedance standard easier to operate thanks to the use of graphene on SiC. The consortium, gathering 7 national metrology institutes from European network EURAMET and 2 national metrology institutes form Asia has been reinforced by CRHEA and C2N, who will bring their recognized expertise in graphene growth and processing. The project has just started for 3 years.Read more...

A condensate of polaritons propagating near the speed of light (11/2018)
Physicists from CRHEA, in collaboration with the Pascal Institute and the Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies Center, succeeded in condensing polaritons (half-light/ half-matter particles) in the same quantum state characterized by a very high propagation speed, close to that of the light in the crystal which forms the active zone of the device.Read more...
