    • European projects

      RADSAGA (2017 - 2022)

      MOPERE is a Partner of the RADSAGA Innovative Training Network under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions. RADSAGA, coordinated by CERN, bring together industry, universities, laboratories and test-facilities in order to innovate and train young scientists and engineers in all aspects related to electronics exposed to radiation.






      ADD ON (2018 - 2021)

      MOPERE is coordinating the H2020 Clean Sky2 ADD-ON (Advanced Damage Detection through Optical sensor Network) project. Main objective of ADD-ON is to investigate the feasibility of developing a unique optical sensor network to control the various classes of distributed and point optical sensors. This solution can monitor, in a variety of profiles of use, the SHM measurands of interest: delamination, corrosion, cracking, loading and can simultaneously sustain data transfer.

      Partners: Technobis Fibre Technologies; Airbus (as Topic Manager).




      RADNEXT (2021 – 2025)

      RADNEXT is an H2020 INFRAIA-02-2020 infrastructure project coordinated by CERN with the objective of creating a network of facilities and related irradiation methodology for responding to the emerging needs of electronics component and system irradiation; as well as combining different irradiation and simulation techniques for optimizing the radiation hardness assurance for systems, focusing on the related risk assessment. MOPERE is a Partner of RADNEXT and is leading the research-oriented WP5 about radiation detection, dosimetry and beam instrumentation.



      PHOTONHUB EUROPE (2021 – 2025)

      PhotonHub Europe – a new pan-European photonics digital innovation hub –, coordinated by VUB (Belgium) has been awarded €19 million investment from the EU’s Horizon 2020 programme. PhotonHub Europe will help European SMEs and mid-caps become highly competitive digital businesses through faster and smarter deployment of photonics-based technologies. UJM is a member of the project and MOPERE contributes to PhotonHub through its irradiation platform and the local coordination for UJM.






      SWISSMODICS (2021 – 2023)

      LabHC is partner of the H2020 Clean Sky 2 SWISSMODICS (Development of a Sensor with WIde Spectrum Sensitivity for MOnitoring of Damage and Defects In Composite Structures), managed by the CSEM (Switzerland). MOPERE contributes to Swissmodic through its irradiation platform, leading the WP2 and by ensuring the local coordination for UJM.

      Partners: CSEM, Almay




      RADMEP (2020 – 2026)

      MOPERE team is coordinating the 2-year (120 ECTS) European Master in Radiation and its Effects on MicroElectronics and Photonics Technologies (RADMEP). RADMEP provides a multidisciplinary and innovative programme covering the interactions between Radiation and MicroElectronics and Photonics, two Key Enabling Technologies for the future of Europe. RADMEP objective is to educate students in those advanced technologies, providing methodologies and introducing practical applications for their implementation in a variety of natural or man-made radiation-rich environments.

      Partners: University of Jyväskylä, KU Leuven, Université de Montpellier (35 associated partners)

    • Investments for the Future programme (PIA) Projects

      CERTYF (2017 - 2022)


      MOPERE is coordinating the CERTYF (Combined effects of radiation, temperature and hydrogen on optical fibres and silica-based materials) project. CERTYF is a fundamental research project with the aim of improving the understanding of the basic mechanisms governing the degradation of optical fibers in complex environments combining the following stresses: temperature (ambient temp. - 300°C), radiation (doses up to the order of MGy) and hydrogen.

      Partners: UJM, Univ. Côte d’Azur, IRSN (ANDRA as Topic Manager)





      CAMRAD (2016 – 2022)

      MOPERE is member of the CAMRAD (High-performance radiation-hardened imaging system for in-situ characterization of nuclear waste) project lead by ISAE SUPAERO. The industrial research project, CAMRAD, seeks to develop and test, under real conditions, a high-performance (color camera, high sensitivity and high resolution) imaging system that is resistant to ionizing radiation (over 1MGy) for characterizing nuclear waste and general use in the nuclear industry.

      Partners: ISAE SUPAERO, ORANO, CEA DAM, IRSN, OPTSYS (ANDRA as Topic Manager)





      SURFIN (2017 – 2022)


      MOPERE is member of the SURFIN (New materials for the monitoring by fiber optics of nuclear facilities) project lead by University of Lille. SURFIN aims to characterize new luminescent vitreous materials, based on doped silica (intentional implantation of some elements to modify the properties of optical fibers), and to implement them in fiber solutions for in situ dosimetry of different radiation environments (X, γ, …).

      Partners: Univ. Lille, Univ. Côte d’Azur, Univ. Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne, UJM (ANDRA as Topic Manager)

    • National Research Agency (ANR) projects

      FIDELIO (2021 – 2025)

      MOPERE is member of the FIDELIO PCRE ANR (Fiber-based In-vivo Realtime Dosimetry for Pulsed Radiotherapy) project lead by Univ. Côte d’Azur and Fédération Claude Lalanne. FIDELIO aims to develop innovative real-time dosimeters that will be: (i) miniaturized; (ii) designed to measure high dose rates (at least 50 Gy s-1) and short pulses (down to 10 μs); (iii) immune to electromagnetic fields. (iv) as insensitive as possible to the linear energy transfer.

      Partners: Univ. Lille, Univ. Côte d’Azur, iXBlue, UJM

    • Industrial projects (since 2015)

      MOPERE is involved in several industrial projects with the major players in the nuclear domains. In particular, several PhD theses from the MOPERE research group have been granted by industrial or agency partners: iXblue (Marilena Vivona, Ayoub Ladaci, Camille Sabatier), CNES/iXblue (Marine Aubry), CERN/CNES (Nourdine Kerboub), CERN (Gaetano Li Vecchi), ANDRA (Xavier Phéron, Chiara Cangialosi, Isabelle Planes), AREVA (Adriana Morana, Serena Rizzolo).
