Benoît CHARLOT CNRS researcher (CR1), 38 years.

Main skill : MEMS and analog IC design. Microfabrication technologies. Finite Element Analysis.

Benoît Charlot was born in Vichy, France, in 1972. He received M.S and PhD degrees in microelectronics from the Institut National Polytechnique de Grenoble (INPG), France in 1996 and 2001, respectively. He is currently a researcher in CNRS (the French National Centre of the Scientific Research) at the IES laboratory in Montpellier, France.

From 1998 to 2001 he was Ph.D student in TIMA laboratory working on the development of design for test and Built-In Self-Test techniques for MEMS devices.

From 2001 to 2005 he was a post doc and CNRS researcher in TIMA laboratory in Grenoble, France. His research areas were thermal analysis of ICs, infrared sensors, integrated fingerprint sensors and micro power generators for autonomous Microsystems.

From 2005 to 2007 he has been working in LIMMS, a joint French / Japanese research lab in Tokyo. He joined Pr. Toshiyoshi’s research group on optical and RF MEMS. During these two years he developed field emission devices for RF MEMS microresonators and bistable nanomechanical memories. Using the facilities of the University of Tokyo he gains strong knowledge on microfabrication techniques. In September 2007 he returned to France in IES Montpellier where he works at developing a new research activity on BioMEMS.

Benoît CHARLOT has been the co-advisor of two PhD students that obtained their PhD degrees in 2002 and 2005 respectively. 

Concerning research projects, Benoît CHARLOT has a long experience of European research projects. From 2001 to 2003 he has been in charge of a work package in the FP5 project PROFIT (Prediction of Temperature Gradients Influencing the Quality of Electronic Products, 2000-2003). The project consortium was including : PHILIPS research, ST Microelectronics, Infineon, PHILIPS semiconductors, CQM, TIMA, BUTE, MICRED, Flowmerics and NOKIA.

In 2003 Benoît CHARLOT has been the initiator of the European research project VIBES (VIBration Energy Scavenging, FP6 IST STREP). The management of the project has been made by PHILIPS research, gaining from their internal dedicated unit EUROPARTNERS. The project consortium was including PHILIPS research NATLAB, TIMA, PHILIPS digital system labs, Univ. Southampton, Tyndall Institute, MEMSCAP, 01db METRAVIB, FEMTO ST.

Benoit CHALOT also participates in several national and regional research projects funded by CNRS, INPG and region Rhône Alpes (OSMOSE, ACI Energie, …).

Benoît CHARLOT is reviewer for IEEE journal of MEMS, IEEE Sensors and Journal of Micromechanics and microengineering. He is a member of the programme committee of DTIP and THERMINIC symposiums.
