After Jino George, this is the turn of Xiaolan Zhong, now assistant professor in Beihang University, Beijing, to visit the lab and to spend some time among us, welcome back !
“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.
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.
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.
Our former postdoc Jino George, now assistant professor at IISER Mohali, arrived in Strasbourg last Friday and will stay two weeks among us. Welcome back !
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
The nanostructures team had a nice time yesterday in Paris, on the occasion of the inaugural lesson of Thomas Ebbesen in Collège de France. Here are some souvenirs of this beautiful afternoon.
Our colleague Dr Anoop Thomas won the poster prize offered by Nature Nanotechnology in SCOM 2018 conference in Eindhoven. Congratulations to him, but also to his corecipient Dr Ankit Bisht from Chalmers University !
