Research Overview

In a nutshell: Multi-scale structures/property (electronic, ionic, protonic transfers) correlations within self-assembled and hierarchized synthetic and bioinspired functional (liquid crystalline) materials

Through the rational (bioinspired) design, controlled synthesis, and advanced processing of functional (synthetic and biosourced (e.g. DNA, Peptide, Protein)) soft materials (oligomers & homo/block co-polymers, dendrons/dendrimers) aiming at encoding complex and efficient functions through hierarchical self-assembly processes across many length scales (nano⇒meso⇒micro⇒macro-scales), the main aim of my research activities for the past two decades has been dedicated to eradicating all potential sources of (chemical, structural, and energetic) disorder to boost the efficiencies of electronic, ionic and protonic transfers at work within active layers of (opto)electronic actives devices (IT/Organic (Bio)Electronics: FETs & solar cells) and (liquid crystalline) electrolytes of batteries (Energy storage). These (bio)material science approaches are combined with the technical developments of multimodal (at the SPrAM lab & ESRF large scale facility) platforms for performing in depth (in situ and operando) studies with the goal of accessing the intrinsic (defect-free) and ultimate electronic, ionic and protonic transfer performances of functional soft materials towards next generation applications within the fields of IT (Nanoelectronics) and Energy storage (Nanonionics) .
