Our research is linked to nanophotonics, nanothermics and optoelectronic devices.
- Near-field optics with fluorescent nanoprobes. Our activities concern the study of dielectric and plasmonic nanostructures using a scanning fluorescent probe that detects the near-field. We also study the interactions between fluorescent particles and the local environment.
- Micro and nanothermics. We study thermal properties of compounds and devices using a fluorescent scanning probe microscope. The particle acts as a nanothermometer. By analyzing fluorescence variations we can determine the temperature with a sub-micron lateral resolution.
- Optoelectronics. We develop and characterize new optoelectronic devices with new organic/inorganic hybrid materials : solar cells and light emitting devices.
We are part of the Laboratoire de Physique et d'Etude des Matériaux (LPEM), a joint lab between the Ecole Supérieure de Physique et de Chimie Industrielle (ESPCI-ParisTech), the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), and the Université Pierre et Marie Curie (UPMC).
