Waves

Our group WAVES (ONDES) from Nov. 2015 conduct research works aimed at the development of Smart and Sustainable systems, focusing on integration of innovative materials, and, the design, characterization and the reliability assessment of devices for various applications, mainly using acoustic, photonic and high frequency waves. The understanding of physical mechanisms occurring in materials, devices and their interaction with the environment is fundamental to our work. WAVES is working on plans to develop innovative detection devices and sensor networks, well adapted to digital environment. Targeted application areas are on current issues related to healthcare, environment, agriculture, Factory of the Future, energy…

Towards Multi-disciplinary Multi-technology Smart and Sustainable systems

The WAVES group (“ONDES”) conducts research works aimed at the development of Smart and Sustainable systems, focusing on integration of innovative materials, and, the design, characterization and the reliability assessment of devices for various applications, mainly using acoustic, photonic and high frequency waves. The understanding of physical mechanisms occurring in materials, devices and their interaction with the environment is fundamental to our work. The new group is working on plans to develop innovative detection devices and sensor networks, well adapted to digital environment. Targeted application areas are on current issues related to healthcare, environment, agriculture, Factory of the Future, energy… Three major topics have been defined :

  • Photonic, Electromagnetic, Acoustic Microdevices
  • Multi-disciplinary Smart Sensors
  • Wireless solutions for Micro-energy

3 dedicated research teams

The group WAVES (ONDES) is composed of three topic involved in highly multi-disciplinary projects (materials, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, etc.) each with academic and/or industrial partners:

  • Materials : Advanced materials for electronic, electromagnetic and photonic components and functions
  • Devices: Multifunctional multimode physical and (bio)chemical transducers
  • ZeroPower: Batteryless Wireless sensors

Among other projects, we are also strongly committed in Laboratories of Excellence of the University of Bordeaux, which has established these world-class clusters, as well as in several projects that replace them and are due to start in 2022 (Grands Programmes de Recherche, Réseaux de Recherche Impulsion), all of them bringing together teams from different joint research units (universities, national research bodies and industry).

Support technological centres: TAMIS (Alternative Technologies, clean room), OpERaS (Evaluation of the reliability of optoelectronic and photonic devices), Nanocom (DC-750GHz measurement facility)

Résumé en français

Le groupe ONDES depuis novembre 2015, mène des travaux allant de l’intégration de matériaux innovants à l’étude, la réalisation, la caractérisation et l’évaluation de la fiabilité de dispositifs et plateformes pour un spectre large d’applications, en privilégiant la détection acoustique, la photonique et les hyperfréquences. Les mécanismes physiques sont au cœur des problématiques des équipes dans la mise en œuvre des matériaux, le développement de dispositifs et leur caractérisation en interaction avec un environnement contrôlé. La nouvelle constitution du groupe lui permet aujourd’hui d’orienter un volet de sa politique scientifique vers l’étude de dispositifs de détection innovants compatibles avec la perspective d’un environnement numérique adapté aux besoins du futur, et visant le développement de réseaux de capteurs. Des applications dans les domaines de la santé, l’environnement, l’agriculture, l’industrie du futur ou l’énergie sont particulièrement ciblées, avec des retombées potentielles dans de nombreux secteurs d’activités. Trois thèmes directeurs sont définis:

  • Microdispositifs Photoniques, Electromagnétiques, Acoustiques
  • Capteurs multi physiques communicants
  • Systèmes de micro-énergie sans fil
