Professor at Grenoble University Joseph Fourier
Specialist of Physic of semiconductors and nanostructures, especially their optical properties, his interests include nano-fabrication, optimization of growth conditions to improve the optical properties, exploration of possibilities of using nano-emitters for quantum optics.
He has coordinated the ANR (French National Research Agency) project BONAFO (Dots in Nanowires for Optic; http://pages.ief.u-psud.fr/bonafo/), 2009-2011, whose targets are to acquire the growth control of heterostructures in nanowires (with InAsP, CdZnSe and AlGaN), to get a deep understanding of their optical fundamental properties and to evaluate their advantages for opto-electronic applications. He is currently the main coordinator of the ANR project MagWires (Magnetic semiconductor quantum dots in nanoWires) 2011-2015.
