On the roof of Collège de France

Some souvenir de Paris…where all the team, or almost, had a pleasant and interesting colloquium in a wonderful place ! It was also a good opportunity to meet some of our former members. Four of them are hidden in the picture, would you recognize them ?

E-MRS Quinquennial anniversary award

The E-MRS Anniversary Award recognizes the career contribution of a scientist to fundamental understanding of the science of materials through experimental and/or theoretical research.” It is attributed every five years and after Sir Richard Friend, Prof. Dan Schechtman and Sir John Pendry,  the award has been attributed this year to …  Prof. Thomas Ebbesen !

He will receive it during the E-MRS conference plenary session on Wednesday 20th June in Strasbourg, where he will deliver a presentation on

Light-Matter Interactions in a Material Science Perspective.


Colloquium in College de France

Next week, on June 18 and 19, and in the framework of the Chaire Annuelle d’Innovation Technologique Liliane Bettencourt, a colloquium organized by Thomas Ebbesen will take place in College de France, Paris, entitled

New QED Landscapes for Molecules and Materials 

The speakers will be a mix of former or actual collaborators from our group and world recognized specialists in the field and the detailed program is visible here below.


Venga Yoseline !

Tomorrow, June 13, at 9.15am, our phD student Yoseline Rosales-Cabara will lead the summer edition of the Young Scientist Seminar of ISIS, with a talk entitled

Optical trapping and recognition of single enantiomers

Chiral trapping in PRL

A new publication resulting from a collaboration between our group and David Norris and Lisa Poulikakos, from OMEL group at ETH Zürich has just been accepted in Physical Review Letters. It demonstrates the trapping of single chiral nanoparticles and their in situ recognition via polarimetry measurements. You can find the as soon as publishable version in our publications page.


Some fresh blood in the team !

Since a few weeks we are welcoming two master 2 students in the team : Jérôme Gautier and Florentin Fabre (who is doing a joint training between ISIS and IPCMS) and a master 1 student, Samuel Morville. And more recently, two more master students from India joined the group : Kripa Joseph, coming from IISER Mohali, for a 3 months stay, and Anjali Jayachandran, from CBS Mumbai, for a 6 months stay.

Here is our junior team, from left to right : Samuel, Florentin, Jérôme, Anjali and Kripa
