L​eti, CEA's Laboratory for Electronics and Information Technologies, specializes in nanotechnologies and their applications, from wireless devices and systems to biology, healthcare, and photonics. With a strong focus on technology transfer, Leti has a portfolio of 1,880 families of patents and counts the world's greatest innovators among its industrial partners.​​​​
​​Key Enabling Technol​ogies (KETs) are at the core of CEA's technological res​earch. With these applications, CEA researchers contribute to taking up major society challenges such as reducing greenhouse gas emission in the transportation industry, designing recycling technologies and substitution materials for energy, and decreasing dependence to fossil fuels.

CEA is also home to one of the top supercomputers in the world, Tera-100, which complements CEA's simulation capacities. Together, they provide researchers with outstanding equipment for digital simulation and high perform​​​​ance computing for the design of complex systems, and research in physics, neutronics, structural mechanics, therm​ohydraulic modeling, and life sciences.​​

​​​​​At the heart of tomorrow's energy challenges, CEA researchers strive at advancing knowledge on the long-term behavior of materials in their environment, e.g. corrosion and reactivity of surfaces. CEA laboratories also contribute to CEA's position as a leader in actinide physics and chemistry with the Atalante facility for radiochemistry and the Institute for Separation Chemistry (ICSM), among others.
