The C2N Central Technology Facility belongs,
together with five other facilities located in
CEA-LETI associated to
FMNT, to the national BTR network,
the Basic Technology Research
network initiated in 2004.
This network supports all major public technological research centres.
Within the framework of this network, C2N supports more than hundred external
projects every year, the technological investigation being developed in C2N
while the project leader belongs to another lab. C2N process specialists
evaluate the feasibility of the project, and define the technology to be
exploited or to be developed in order to deliver the required structures or
to perform high-end analysis. C2N has a 15% share of its technological
activity devoted to research projects managed by groups or researchers from
The C2N expertise covers requirements such as delivery of MBE or MOVPE grown
materials, mainly III-V semiconductors heterostructures, micro and nano
technologies, and also analysis.
