The performance of biomaterials in biological systems is of critical importance for the development of biomedical implants and tissue engineering. Using a coating (thin film) as the interface between the bulk material and the biologic environment is one of the solutions which can potentially lead to better bioresponse, improved mechanical characteristics(More)
This work reports real-time soft-error rate (SER) testing of semiconductor static memories in both altitude and underground environments to separate the component of the SER induced by the cosmic rays (i.e. primarily by atmospheric neutrons) from that caused by on-chip radioactive impurities (alpha-particle emitters). Two European dedicated sites were used(More)
This review covers our recent (2005–2010) experiments and modeling-simulation work dedicated to the evaluation of natural radiation-induced soft errors in advanced static memory (SRAM) technologies. The impact on the chip soft-error rate (SER) of both terrestrial neutrons induced by cosmic rays and alphaparticle emitters, generated from traces of(More)
This work reports the CUDA implementation of the collection-diffusion model to compute the soft-error rate (SER) of large area and/or complex circuits on graphics processing units (GPU). We detail the time parallelization introduced in the algorithm to accelerate by one order of magnitude the SER calculation. Code performances are evaluated on a NVIDIA(More)
A solution is proposed to surpass the inconvenience caused by the corrosion of stainless steel implants in human body fluids by protection with thin films of bioactive glasses or with composite polymer-bioactive glass nanostructures. Our option was to apply thin film deposition by matrix-assisted pulsed laser evaporation (MAPLE) which, to the difference to(More)
