Pierre & Marie Curie University (UPMC) is the largest French university for science and medicine with its: 4000 researchers and teaching staff, 3000 engineers and technicians, 180 laboratories, and its 30 000 students including 8000 in postgraduate studies.
The L2E (Electronics and Electromagnetism Laboratory) is a laboratory of the UPMC. It is apart of the unity of formation and researches, UFR 919, for Engineering. It is recognized as the research group no. 2385 by the Ministry of Research since January 1997. Since March 01, 2008, the laboratory is formed from the following three groups:
The goals of the L2E laboratory are to design, analyze and develop components, devices and sub-systems, across a wide range of frequency bands, in order to contribute to the general knowledge in analog electronics, microwaves and electromagnetics, and to publicize the obtained results.
- Nano-devices Microwave and Materials
- Integrated Sensors for Instrumentation and Imaging
- Electromagnetic Systems
Electromagnetic Systems group is composed of 2 professors, 4 assistant professors and 7 Ph.D, students. The principal research activities for the group are related to electromagnetic modelling applied to the study of telecommunications systems, antennas/RADAR and bio-electromagnetism. For the bio-electromagnetism applications, the principal goal is to improve the dosimetric studies for checking of the levels of power absorption by human living tissues exposed to electromagnetic fields, in the environment of wireless telecommunications and are performed in partnership with France Telecom R & D. Involvement in other projects related to the proposal.
Our Electromagnetic Systems group makes part of the project ENDOCOM, whose objective is the realization of a prosthetics communicating by RF, dedicated to the post-operation follow-up of aneurisms of the abdominal aorta. This project had already obtained a first financial subvention from UPMC in 2006 of the type BQR and is proposed by 9 academic and industrial partners including our group in 2007 as a project to ANR TecSan 2007. A thesis CIFRE, deals with BAN, is co-managed by our group and France Telecom R & D since October 2006.
