The LABEX ∑-LIM ” From specific ceramic materials and components to integrated, secured and smart communicating systems ” is supported by two join research units of the University of Limoges and the CNRS, IRCER and XLIM, and associated to two competitiveness clusters, the ALPHA RLH cluster and the European Ceramics Cluster.
In its phase 2, launched on January 1, 2020, the LABEX Σ-LIM aims to answer to scientific, technological, environmental and societal challenges defined in the National Research Strategy (SNR) as well as in the Horizon Europe plan, by maintaining a basic research at high level and valorizing the knowledge acquired.
The core scientific domain of its ambition covers the following 4 flagship programs including 9 scientific challenges:
Going beyond 5G
Advanced design methods 3D integrated RF front-ends
Materials and devices for THz sub-systems
Security and interoperability of systems beyond 5G
Promoting health with advanced diagnostics and therapies
Biomaterials and electromagnetic waves for health applications
Biomaterials, bio-photonics and imaging for diagnosis
Bringing a new
light on photonics
Development of new bulk glass-ceramic
Developments in the field of optical fibers
