Summary of Interests

My scientific interest is focused on light-matter interaction in the classical and quantum regime in Condensed Matter Physics. It relies on three milestones: a light emitter (electronic system, generally such as quantum dots, quantum well, nanocrystals,...), a photon mode (or many!) and a coupling between them. Reducing the size of these electro-optic systems allow to reach high scalability. Moreover, from a Physical point of view, it allows to reach original Quantum Physics allowing fruitful light-matter manipulation. In addition to this rich Physics (ex: Cavity Quantum ElectroDynamics or polariton Bose-Einstein condensation), these systems provide new tools with impressive figure of merit in nanotechnologies and in the related fields such as biological and chemical sensing (ex: optical detection of a single protein).
