Keywords: molecular electronics, molecular nanostructures, electronic transport, quantum devices, nanoscience.
I am interested in the physics of nanostructures and nanodevices made of organic molecules and/or hybrid systems involving organic molecules, inorganic metal and/or semiconductor nanostructures. I study the quantum transport properties of various molecular nanostructures based on self-assembled monolayers, small ensemble of molecules, supramolecular assembly of molecules and nano-objects.
I received the PhD degree and Habilitation diploma in solid-state physics, from the University of Lille, France, in 1984 and 1992, respectively. I am research director at CNRS (centre national de la recherche scientifique) and I work at the Institute for Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnology (IEMN), a CNRS laboratory at the University of Lille.
My research interests (1982-1992) covered physics and characterization of point defects in semiconductors and devices, physics and reliability of thin insulating films, hot-carrier effects in MOSFETs. Since 1992, I am engaged in the field of electronic properties of molecular nanostructures and molecular electronics.
In 2000, I created and headed (until 2019) the « Nanostructures, nanoComponents & Molecules » (NCM) research group at IEMN. From 2015 to 2019, I was head of the department “Physics of materials and nanostructures” at IEMN.
I am the author or co-author of more than 230 scientific (peer-reviewed) papers and 75 invited talks in international conference in these fields. I was scientific advisor for industrial companies (Bull R&D center) on advanced CMOS technology reliability (1988-1990) and for the CEA (Commissariat à l’énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives) for the “Chimtronique” (Chemistry for nanoelectronics) research program (2006-2013).
