Research activities

My current research area concerns the domain of molecular electronics, more particularly nanoparticle synthesis and their deposit on various supports such as Self-Assembled Monolayers SAMs. I am developing this topic since my arrival in Orsay following my research activity at ITODYS. Firstly, in Vladimir Esaulov’s group, I was essentially interested in SAM characterization by various spectroscopic techniques (mainly infrared and cyclic voltammetry but also XPS, UPS, NEXAFS…). Since January 2013, my studies on SAMs changed direction and now focus on characterization by High Resolution Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy HREELS. In Anne Lafosse’s group, we are also developing another subject which concerns SAM modification by impact of low-energy electrons (typically < 50 eV).

My previous research activity concerned metal-oxo clusters called polyoxometalates or heteropolyanions. Another part of my research activity dealt with organometallic complex immobilization on surfaces and on new species synthesis.
