Semiconducting nanoparticles – their fabrication, properties and spectroscopy

The lectures are devoted to the description of some selected topics regarding nanoparticles used in optical applications.

The course is divided into two parts; the first one is mainly focused on physical synthesis techniques and the potentialities to control the stability and shape of the resulting nanoparticles. The second part is concerned with the spectroscopy of the previous nanoparticles. The different protocols used to characterize them optically are presented emphasizing their interests and limits. Eventually, the physical phenomena, peculiar to the nanometer size, on the optical spectroscopy are detailed.

Dr Alexandra Apostoluk, aged 39, has been working on the emission of polymer and inorganic materials since her Engineering and MSc at Wroclaw University of Technology (Poland) and through her PhD in 2000-2003 at Université d’Angers. In 2003, she joined the Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique (CEA) in Saclay, France, for a 2-year post-doc on polymer semiconductors. In 2005 she worked as a lecturer and researcher at the University of Technology of Troyes. In 2006 she became an associate professor at INSA Lyon, working on III-V and II-VI nanostructures. She has a rich experience in both national and international academic and industrial research projects or networks and educational projects (French National Projects ANR, European FP6, Egide project Osmosis and Polonium, French GDR, Tempus). She is a co-author more than 21 scientific papers and was 5 times an invited speaker in international conferences. She worked as an invited researcher at Thamassat University (Bangkok, Thailand), KEIO University (Yokohama, Japan) and at Tokyo University (since 1st February 2015 till 1st May 2015). Thanks to her training and thematic and geographic mobility (Poland, France, Thailand, Japan), she acquired a polyvalent expertise in the nanomaterial fabrication and deposition techniques, structural properties of polymer and crystalline materials, electrical and optical properties of metallic oxides and in the field of optical spectroscopy and time resolved spectroscopy.
