IJC Silicon Lab Platform - Lounis Abdenour
A state of the art instrumental facility for silicon detector devices and integrated microelectronics circuits has been developed in IJC Lab to respond to advanced experimental requirements of high energy experiments. This project has been driven originally by special ATLAS upgrade project requirements and a variety of Research and development applications focused on solid state detectors.
The master piece of this infrastructure is a modern semi-automated probe station that is an essential machine for sensor and ASIC characterization. Numerous operations could carried in the clean room (ISO7) ranging from initial visual inspection of various microdevices using a high resolution microscope to silicon pixel module assembly, using ultra precise metrology tools to deliver at the end, the final device that will be operational in our demanding applications.
The platform is essential and unique place to raise the expertise of our collaborators and offers a tremendous chance to gain knowledge of young students and postdoc fellows.
PROTON THERAPY CENTER - Samuel Meyroneinc
Please note that for this visit each visitor must bring and wear a mask which is still in use in hospitals
The Proton Therapy Center at Institut Curie is located on the university campus at Orsay in the Essonne region. It administers an ultra-precise form of radiotherapy used to treat certain adult and childhood cancers. Protontherapy is an external radiotherapy which treats patients using proton beams. It enables the dose of radiation to the tumor to be increased while reducing the dose delivered to the neighboring healthy tissues. This radiotherapy can only be performed in properly equipped specialist centers.
Virtual Data - Guillaume Philippon
Virtual Data is a shared platform for the computer systems of the Valley's laboratories grouped together in the P2I0 (Physics of the Two Infinities and Origins) Laboratory of Excellence.
This platform was designed to replace the computer rooms of the eight P2IO laboratories on campus with a common platform, divided between a room in the Valley (building 206) and a room on the plateau (within the Polytechnic hall), in order to optimise infrastructure and operating costs (building, air conditioning system, electricity, etc.) while limiting the environmental impact of the installation and improving the availability of services provided.
