Additive manufacturing invites itself to synchrotron
Morgan RUSINOWICZ has been awarded the 2023 UGA Thesis Prize for his PhD, defended in December 2022 as part of the IMEP2 doctoral school. His thesis work at the SIMaP laboratory focused on "Mechanical and electrical properties of dielectric thin films: nanoindentation-electrical experiments and numerical simulations", and was co-supervised by Muriel BRACCINI and Fabien VOLPI. Morgan was also awarded the EMPREINTE 2023 thesis prize by the Groupe Indentation Multi-Echelle (GIME).
ROSI Solar, a start-up originated from the SIMaP laboratory and which offers solutions for recycling and upgrading raw materials from the photovoltaic industry, has just set up its first solar panel recycling plant in Isère, on the Matheysin plateau (see press article).
Resulting from the valorisation of research work carried out in the SIMaP laboratory on amorphous metals, the start-up Vulkam produces metals with incomparable properties. Thanks to specifically designed processes, the manufacture of miniature parts with unrivalled mechanical and functional characteristics can be envisaged.
In the top 150 of the Shanghai 2022 global ranking, Université Grenoble-Alpes is listed in the top 100 of the world's best universities for 15 disciplines. Especially, in "Metallurgical Engineering" UGA is ranked 39, and the second French University. More details here.
