Scientific partners

FEMTO-ST (Franche-Comté Electronique Mécanique Thermique et Optique – Sciences et Technologies) is a joint research unit which is affiliated with the French National Centre of Scientific Research (CNRS), the University of Franche-Comté (UFC), the National School of Mechanical Engineering and Microtechnology (ENSMM), and the Belfort-Montbéliard University of Technology (UTBM).
FEMTO-ST was founded in January 2004 from the merger of 5 different laboratories active in different fields of engineering science: mechanics, optics and telecommunications, electronics, time-frequency, energetics and fluidics.
500 researchers work at FEMTO-ST.
A specific team is dedicated to Microacoustics (Composants et Systèmes MicroAcoustiques CoSyMA), with 25 researchers in the field of SAW, BAW devices (Surface and Bulk Acoustic Waves), sensors and sensing systems.
In September 2015, SENSeOR and FEMTO-ST inaugurated a common research laboratory, called «Physical Acoustics, Sensors and Embedded Systems» or «PhASES». This project mainly involves physics and microacoustic technologies, renowned expertise field of the Institute and fundamental transduction principle of the sensors developed and commercialized by SENSeOR. This collaboration aims at the joint elaboration of incremental innovations and breakthrough in the fields of high performance, passive, wireless and low-cost sensor development, as well as their valorization towards identified markets.
