Commissariat à l'Energie Atomique (CEA-LETI)

CEA, the French Alternatives Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, will involve LETI, the Laboratory for Electronics & Information Technology. This Institute mainly aims at helping companies to increase their competitiveness through technological innovation and transfer of its technical know-how to industry.

CEA-LETI gathers 1500 employees and benefits from state-of-the-art equipment. Overall, research contracts with industry are worth 75% of its annual income. It has a very important patents portfolio, and filed last year more than 250 patents and 700 publications. In the field of Telecommunications, CEA-LETI has a strong expertise on all wireless systems, from advanced RF and digital components to IP protocols.

Role & Activities in the project

CEA LETI will mainly contribute to the efficient EMF measurement and assessment of the exposure index (wearable dosimeter RF architecture) in WP3, the Smart low EMF radios (hardware component, radio transmission techniques) in WP4 (WP leader), the Smart low EMF network architectures in WP5 and at last the demonstration activities in WP6

CEA-LETI is involved in many EU FP6 and FP7 projects, as coordinator in SENSEI, ORACLE, and 4MORE, but also FIREWORKS, ROCKET, CHOSEN and EARTH. They deal with the network of the future, from sensor networks to advanced mobile networks using cooperative communications and/or cognitive radios. Through participation in these projects, extensive experience has been achieved and contributions have been done in the areas of the LEXNET project, i.e., radio resource management, and EM Field characterisation, RF front-end and antenna design, prototypes and cross-layer optimisation

Key people involved on the project

Serge BORIES received his Engineer Diploma in Electronics in 2002 in the field of Microwaves from the Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile (ENAC) (Toulouse, France). He received his PhD degree from the laboratory of Electronics and Computer Engineering of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure de Techniques Avancées (ENSTA-Paritech) (Paris, France) on UWB antenna design for multimedia communications. Currently he joins the CEA-LETI (Grenoble, France). From 2003, he has been involved for several European projects (ULTRAWAVES, PULSERS, EARTH…). His areas of research are mainly antenna design and characterisation and propagation channel measurements

Laurent Herault was born in Tours, France, in 1964. He received the BS degree in electrical engineering and the MS degree in control engineering from the Institute National Polytechnique de Grenoble, (INPG) in 1987 and the Ph.D. degree in computer science from INPG in 1991. He won the Best Junior Researcher Award from the University of Grenoble, France, in 1990. He is ‘International Expert’ at CEA. From 2004, he is Head of the Wireless Communications and Security labs. He has been involved in many FP5-7 projects and is currently coordinating the FP7 SENSEI Integrated Project. He represents CEA in several EUREKA programs of the CATRENE and CELTIC clusters.

Dimitri KTENAS received the Dipl.-Ing. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Electronique et de Radioélectricité (ENSERG), Grenoble, in 2001. From that time, he has been working as a research engineer in the Wireless Laboratory in CEA-Leti where he firstly worked on algorithmic and architecture studies for the PHY layer of MC-CDMA and OFDMA systems. His main current research interests are cross-layer optimisation for OFDMA-based cellular networks, cooperative relaying and MIMO systems. He has been involved in several European projects (4MORE, CODIV, UNITE, ARTIST4G) and was the coordinator of the French OPUS project.  Since 2010, he is leading a R&D team within the Wireless laboratory, in charge of baseband processing and MAC layer studies for wireless systems.

Christophe DELAVEAUD

Lionel Rudant graduated in 2003 from school as Polytech'Nantes System Engineer Electronics and Computer Engineering with a specialisation in the field of microwaves. In 2004, he obtained his Diploma of Technology for Institut National Polytechnique of Grenoble INPG for this work miniaturisation of MIMO multi-antenna. In 2004-05, he was in charge of antenna projects for the automotive research center of Radiall-Larsen in Voiron. Since 2006 he is responsible for innovation projects in the field of antennas and propagation at CEA-LETI in Grenoble. His research topics are miniature antenna systems, tests and measurements, integration of innovative antenna concepts in industrial products, etc. He is involved in projects of national and european (Rocket, Winner+, Chosen) research.
