The Institut de Microélectronique Electromagnétisme Photonique and LAboratoire d'Hyperfréquences et de Caractérisation, IMEP-LaHC, is a « unité mixte de recherche » (CNRS / Grenoble INP / UGA / Université Savoie Mont Blanc) of 110 people strongly committed in research activities related to micro- and nano-electronics, microphotonics, micro- and nano-systems, microwaves and microwave-photonics.
The laboratory is settled over two sites : Grenoble-Minatec (38) and Le Bourget du Lac (73).
The Linksium DAMP project (Device for the Analysis of Materials Profiles) developed in IMEP-LaHC is now in a marketing phase.
The device consists of a multisensors RF probe for the measurement of stratified media physical properties with a specialized software and database.
The target markets are precision farming and snowpack monitoring.
