CARAC 2023 event comes to gather togerther all the expertise of the institutes of technological research and institutes for the energy transition in characterization at the service of trust for the industry focusing on reliability of the systems, failure analysis and materials. Le colloquium Carac’2023 aims to present the potential of FIT institutes in terms of characterization, both from the point of view of platform performance and team excellence’. Several topics will be documented and discussed through many application examples, both from the angle of materials and integrated systems. Two questions will be discussed: the efficient exploitation of characterization data, and their implementation in a sustainable and responsible development approach. EMCC will participate in the event with a keynote speech on the characterisation roadmap of EMCC giving the directions to new focus areas in the field of characterisation to support industry in green and digital transition.
CHARACTERIZATION TO FEED THE TECHNOLOGICAL ENGINEERING APPROACH
Characterization encompasses a broad set of processes by which the structure and properties of materials, components, or systems are probed, imaged and quantified. It allows to understand the phenomena involved and to build predictive models in terms of reliability, evolution and aging. Thus, characterization is a fundamental process, fully integrated into the development of materials and products that result. In its absence, any scientific and technical apprehension of a technological engineering approach remains out of reach.
SHARP AND DIVERSE TECHNIQUES
Characterization helps to adapt the handling, transport, treatment and implementation processes of materials and components to achieve performance adapted to the applications sought. It relates as much to the organization of the object studied on a fine scale (crystal structure or amorphous structure, physico-chemical composition, defects) as to its macroscopic and functional properties (mechanical resistance, electrical response, surface condition, and so on).
It involves the implementation of techniques that range from’ imaging to spectroscopy in different fields of the electromagnetic spectrum as well as mechanical, physicochemical and electromagnetic stressing devices, in particular for the failure analysis. The preparation and conditioning samples, as well as the consolidation and interpretation of data, are a major part of any characterization work.
For R&D, characterization data guides researchers and engineers in optimizing the concepts they deploy and the associated conditions of achievement. For industry, it provides data to ensure proper functioning and failure analysis, control of the environmental footprint and duration of use of the final products. It contributes to the reliability of industrial processes, to the confidence and technological credibility that must necessarily be attributed to them.
