Electronics group

The ELECTRONIQUE team participates in international instrumental development projects, ground or space, for research in astrophysics. Our main contributions concern the fields of radio astronomy and exploration of the solar system:
- high-resolution spectrometer of the HIFI instrument onboard the Herschel satellite of the European Space Agency,
- digitization and correlation systems of the ALMA interferometric network,
- ChemCam instrument aboard the NASA Mars exploration rover Curiosity,
- SuperCam instrument for the NASA mission March 2020,
- Wisdom surface penetrating radar for the Exomars mission of the European Space Agency.

These large projects, managed by major national or supranational bodies (CNES, ESA, NASA, ESO, etc.), are often carried out in the framework of national collaborations (IRAP, LATMOS, radio astronomy station of Nançay, etc.) or international collaborations (ASTRON, LANL, NRAO, Osservatorio Astrofisico di Arcetri, etc.). For the production and production of electronic boards, the team relies on a network of industrialists, mostly regional.

The team's expertise spans a wide range of electronics, from hardware to software, to firmware: design of microwave circuits in planar technology up to 20 GHz, development of mixed analog-digital ASIC and electronic boards High-density integration, FPGA and microcontroller programming, embedded system design, mathematical modeling for digital signal processing, graphical interface development and computer codes for control / control or digital processing.

The team welcomes students throughout the year from various courses (BTS, IUT, LMD, engineering school, doctoral student) to contribute to the design, testing and validation activities. The team also contributes to teaching tasks in IUT and engineering school.
