French projects



Major National contractual projects involving SPINTEC


MARIN – An ANR project

MARIN stands for Magnon Reservoir computINg. It is a 42 months researcher project funded by the French ANR. MARIN aims at showing that spin waves can be used in the field of “wave-computing” where oscillatory signals are proposed to perform analog non-Boolean operations such as reservoir computing (see Figure). The MARIN project will investigate experimentally […]

UFO – An ANR project

UFO stands for UltraFast Opto-magneto-spintronics for Futur Nanotechnologies. UltraFast Opto-magneto-spintronics is an emerging field of research that combines the ideas and concepts of magneto-optics and opto-magnetism with spin transport phenomena, supplemented with the possibilities offered by photonics for ultrafast low-dissipative manipulation and transport of information. Both light and spin currents can control magnetic order, though […]

CRYMCO – An ANR project

The goal of project CRYMCO is to optimize MRAM cell concepts for operation in cryogenic temperature environments. The project will explore applications for storage in conventional and quantum information processing. In the first case, MRAM with low energy dissipation for cryogenic environments could result in power savings by operating at low temperature, when the cost/power […]

ELMAX – An ANR project

ELMAX stands for ELectrical Control of Magnetization in fully epitaXial van der Waals heterostructures. It is a 36 months young researcher project funded by the French ANR. The recent discovery of 2D magnets has enabled the investigation of spin devices fully made of van der Waals materials. Thanks to their two-dimensional nature, 2D magnets generally […]

SpinSpike – An ANR project

SpinSpike stands for Spintronic Spiking Neurons. It is a 42-month-long ANR project (2021/2024). Spintronics has recently shown its promise for neuromorphic computing, but is lacking an essential ingredient of biological neural networks: spiking neurons. In this context, the objective of SpinSpike project is to explore novel approaches of spiking neurons using magnetic tunnel junctions. Building […]

CONTRABASS – An ANR project

CONTRABASS stands for Ferroelectric control of Rashba states, a 42 months ANR project starting in December 2020. Spintronics devices involve ferromagnetic elements with high switching energies. Contrastingly, the polarization of ferroelectrics can be easily switched by an electric field, at energies typically 1000 times lower. Combined with high spin-orbit coupling elements, ferroelectrics have also a […]

MILF – An ANR project

MILF stands for Magnetic Imaging at Low dimensions & high Frequencies. It is a 36-month-long early-carrier ANR project. Magnetic events such as domain reversal, domain wall propagation and vortex oscillations are fast processes, broad source of spintronic applications. However, it remains extremely challenging to scrutinize the inner structure of such magnetic objects during their motion, […]

NV-APROC – An ANR project

NV-APROC stands for Non Volatile MRAM-based Asynchronous PROCessor, a 42-month ANR project starting on October 2019, coordinated by Spintec. Micro and nano electronics integrated circuit domain has been strongly driven by the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT). The constraints become very strong, especially in terms of power consumption and autonomy. Therefore there is […]

MISTRAL – An ANR project

MISTRAL stands for MRAM/CMOS Hybridization to Secure Cryptographic Algorithms, an 42-month ANR project starting on October 2019, coordinated by EMSE (Ecole des Mines de St Etienne in Gardanne). MISTRAL is addressing the security of the cryptography embedded in connected objects at its highest standards while keeping concern by the energy footprint. Consequently, MISTRAL aims at […]
