Program to extend applications for Company’s cathodoluminescence technology.

Attolight and CEA-Leti have announced that they have entered into a joint-development program to apply Attolight’s cathodoluminescence microscopy to semiconductor materials.

Attolight’s innovative combination of electron and light microscopy reveals ultra-trace impurities and crystallographic defects not visible using other imaging techniques.

The company’s core expertise is a measurement technique called cathodoluminescence, a non-destructive characterization method yielding a level of data that provides a deeper understanding of material structures and properties.

The program with Leti is designed to extend the technology for use in the chip industry and research applications.

“This joint-development program with CEA-Leti is a major milestone for Attolight. It is a clear indicator of the value of Attolight’s innovative technology for state-of-the-art research in a variety of applications,” said Attolight CEO Samuel Sonderegger.

Sonderegger continued, “We are very proud to collaborate with such a prestigious partner and this development clearly endorses the quality of Attolight’s products.”

“Our integrated cathodoluminescence approach opens new areas of investigation for research and development teams. For the first time in the marketplace, Attolight’s non-destructive methodology generates quantitative high-resolution cathodoluminescence data for advanced material research,” said Olivier Gougeon, Attolight’s vice president of sales and marketing.

Gougeon continued, “This joint development program will accelerate the build up of Attolight’s product portfolio and will support the company’s global strategy to provide innovative characterization tools, services and technical expertise to the semiconductor industry and research laboratories.”

“The introduction of the cathodoluminescence microscopy in our portfolio of advanced characterization techniques is in line with our roadmaps, and made possible thanks to the French RTB program,” said Narciso Gambacorti, Leti’s nanocharacterization program manager.

Gambacorti continued, “This new equipment will complete the unique offer in terms of material analysis already available in the world-class nanocharacterization platform (PFNC) present at the MINATEC campus. Attolight’s experience in the field of material analysis and cathodoluminescence, in particular, will significantly accelerate the introduction of this technique at Leti.”
