Physicist at CNRS-Thales Lab, France

New French-US joint laboratory

An international joint lab (Laboratoire International Associé, LIA) between the CNRS, the University Paris-Sud, the University of Lorraine and the University of California-San Diego, was inaugurated in September 2015. The leading partners in France are D. Ravelosona fron IEF (CNRS/P-Sud) and S. Mangin from U. Lorraine, and E. Fullerton from UCSD in the US.


The joint lab results from a number of fruitful, long-lasting collaborations between laboratoires at the associated institutions. Those include my collaboration with the group of I.K. Schuller at UCSD.

The joint research focuses on novel nanoelectronics, from new phenomena to low-power electronics. The joint lab will further entrenghen the existing France-US collaborations in the field and foster new ones, by supporting i) common research projects and ii) the exchange of scientists and students.

I play the role of corresponding projet leader at the Unité Mixte de Physique CNRS/Thales, which is an associated partner of the Joint Laboratory.

A series of events were organized on the occasion of the laboratory inauguration (September 14th-17th) , including a scientific workshop hosted by the New York University (NYU), a reception at the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York, and a kick-off meeting at the University of California-San Diego.
