CEA-Leti, Menapic to apply PS acoustics to materials analysis
CEA-Leti and Menapic have announced a joint-development program to apply colored picosecond acoustics to materials analysis.
French startup Menapic’s colored picosecond acoustics (APiC) technology characterizes the mechanical properties of thin films. It reproduces the principle of sonar in nanoscale structures: A spectroscopic pulsed laser source generates acoustic waves in thin-film stacks. Analyzing the propagation of the acoustic pulse in the stack with the technology provides the characterization of each layer.
