Last Friday, the 26th of June, our former PhD student Rémi Goerlich, now in Tel Aviv University, received a prix de thèse from Strasbourg University, for his promising results, with 20 other doctors who graduated in 2022 in different fields (Sciences and Technology, Life and Health Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences). More information on the University website !

On wednesday, 1st of June, during the ITI QMat scientific day held at IPCMS, Rémi Goerlich won the 1st prize for his poster “Harvesting information to control non-equilibrium states of active matter”.
Congratulations to him !
The conference SPIE Photonics Europe started yesterday in Strasbourg and on this occasion Thomas Ebbesen received this morning the 2022 Mozi award. This award was established by the Taiwan Information Storage Association (TISA) and SPIE in 2017. It is named in honor of the Chinese philosopher, scientist, and engineer, Mozi (468-391 BC), the first person in recorded history to mention the simple principles behind the concept of camera obscura. Congratulations !
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 !

Thomas Ebbesen has been granted the grand prix de la fondation Maison de la Chimie 2018, for his recent research on polaritonic chemistry, or how to modify matter properties (conductivity, chemical reactivity for example) by playing on strong light-matter interactions. This prize is attributed every two years and he is the third to obtain it in Strasbourg, after Guy Ourisson and Jean-Pierre Sauvage. He will receive it, together with Susumu Kitagawa also awarded this year, the 13th of February 2019 in Paris, at la Maison de la Chimie. Here is a short article about it on the website of Strasbourg University and a longer one on the website of Maison de la chimie. Congratulations !
