80 years of the CNRS: the CRHEA present at the village of science (10/2019)

Image of the escape game Return to future CRHEA participates in the science village organized by the DR20 on 12 and 13 October 2019 on the Campus Azur on the occasion of the 80th anniversary of the CNRS. The theme of the CRHEA stand is « From the atom to the light ». Workshops :
  • The lemon pile : playful workshop which allows to approach the notions of electric current and light
  • Newton's disk : coloring workshop that addresses the concept of composition of white light
  • The LED game : the participant is an atom, he moves on a hopscotch made of bright slabs
  • A showroom made up of several experiments on the theme of light: decomposition of light, Newton disk and model of a white RGB LED
  • CRHEA has also created an escape game in collaboration with the regional delegation whose theme is « Return to future »

Death of Marc De Micheli (07/2019)

Picture of Marc De Micheli CRHEA is in mourning following the death of Marc De Micheli on July 10, 2019, following a devastating stroke.
Marc De Micheli was Director of Research at the CNRS, he was a member of the INPHYNI Laboratory in Nice, but was also considered unofficially as a member of our laboratory with whom he had established strong links as part of an inter-laboratory action on the subject of non-linear optics. On the one hand, it relied on the technological equipment of CRHEA and its clean room to develop its historical subject, the nonlinear optical components based on lithium niobate. On the other hand, he developed non-linear optics in nitride materials, working on the design, growth and characterization of specific structures based on AlGaN. He had strong collaborations with a large number of people in the laboratory, including those in charge of epitaxy.
This action at the interface of two laboratories was in the image of all the commitment of Marc De Micheli to put people working together, to give life to the institutions and to develop the interfaces between the groups. Fleeing no responsibility, Marc De Micheli has always had the courage to commit to others, to a group, to an idea, and has always accepted missions, even difficult, for the collective interest, whether at the level of laboratories, of the University or competitiveness clusters like Optitec.
CRHEA is in mourning for a great researcher, an indefatigable craftsman of the construction of institutions and human relations. We are mourning a man of benevolence and kindness.
All CRHEA staff members are associated with the immense pain felt by the entire Riviera community and extend their deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.
