Integration of Nanogauges for Strain Optical Monitoring based on Nanoparticle Interaction or deformation ApproachIntegration of Nanogauges for Strain Optical Monitoring based on Nanoparticle Interaction or deformation Approach – INSOMNIA

Submission summary

INSOMNIA aims at promoting at the Institut Charles Delaunay (UTT-CNRS), through the JCJC financial grant, a new research field at the frontier between nano-optics and mechanics. The scientific goal is twofold: i) controling optical properties of nanoparticle assemblies depending on their displacements or shape variations and ii) understanding mechanical deformations of nanostructures and the potential impact on their functional properties. The technological goal by the end of the project is here also twofold: the integration of smart nanosensors into matter based on color changes when strains are applied and anticipation of mechanical failure by detecting rare events via optical signal fluctuations monitoring. RThe potential impact of INSOMNIA mainly concerns the microelectronics industry for which it becomes crucial to develop tools for characterizing mechanical behaviour of materials at the sub-micrometric scale. A steering comittee composed with potential industrial partners and academic researchers will guide the young researcher to favor industrial transfer of the scientific results issued from INSOMNIA.
