We are pleased to announce the phD defense of Yoseline Cabara-Rosales on Thursday, 9th of July, at 10am. Her work, entitled
Agir sur une sonde Brownienne : des forces optiques aux protocoles thermodynamiques optimaux (Acting on a brownian probe : from optical forces to optimal thermodynamical protocols)
has been performed under the supervision of Dr. Genet. Due to the sanitary situation, the defense will take place in the Salle de Conférence of ISIS with a limited number of people, making use of a videoconferencing system.
Here is a nice picture of our (happy) postdoc and phD students team taken by Caroline Schneider during ISIS new year lunch, on January 20th. Last year it was under the snow but 2020 started somehow…warmer…
Daichi Okada, who already spent two months in our lab in the autumn of 2017, is back for another two months stay. He is currently working in Kyushu University, in the group of Pr Adachi where his research topics is laser applications of self-assembled organic micro-structures. If you wish to meet him, he is staying in room 105. Welcome back to him !
Our dear colleague and friend Yantao Pang, who was in the lab for one year, left yesterday because of the end of its stay, to go back in Jinan, China. It was a pleasure to have him with us and we wish him all the best for the future !

The official ceremony for the CNRS gold medal took place in Paris, at Le Palais de la Découverte, on Tuesday 26 of November, on the occasion of the celebration of CNRS 80th birthday. The president Emmanuel Macron himself presented Thomas Ebbesen with the medal and the minister of research, Frédérique Vidal, did a nice talk about his career. The video of the ceremony can be watched either on the social medias of the CNRS or on the Elysée website (Thomas’ speech around 1H32mn). There is also an article on the CNRS website with videos that were shooted at ISIS a few weeks ago, and here is a link to one more video shooted by the local TV France 3 Grand Est.
Congratulations again !

Since October 1st, three new people started a contract in the lab. Women first, we will start with Bianca Patrahau, who already came for a summer training last year. After doing two more trainings in Italy and in Switzerland, she is now starting a phD with us. Then Rémi Goerlich, who did his master 2 training in the lab, in collaboration with Dyno group at IPCMS, is also starting a phD now. To finish, we welcome a new postdoctoral researcher, Gian-Lorenzo Paravicini-Bagliani. He is coming from the Physics Department of ETH Zürich where he worked as a postdoc till July 2019, after defending his phD in the end of 2018 on the magneto-transport in engineered vacuum fields.

Since September 16, Richard Karl, originated from Austria but studying at ETH Zürich joined the lab. He will stay 2 months among us, for preparing his bachelor degree thesis, welcome to him !
Kripa Joseph, who was already in our lab last year for a 3 months training, is back among us, but this time for 3 years. She is indeed starting a phD in our group after having completed her Master degree in Chemistry from Indian Institute of Science Education and Research (IISER) Mohali in May 2019. Welcome back to her !
