  • Comments on fluorescence cross-correlation spectroscopy in a nanoaperture

    05 janvier 2007 ( #Recent research work )

    A point that is always missed by readers of peer-reviewed articles is the discussion with referees, which I believe often contains interesting comments and should somehow be available to the scientific community. To (locally) correct for this, I give...

    As member of the OMNT “materials and components for optics” committee, I regularly give a selection and a brief description of articles, that I found particularly relevant to the field. Here is my latest selection : "Creating hot nanoparticle pairs for...

  • Quantum optics movie

    31 janvier 2007 ( #Nanophotonics pick )

    An amazing video found on Google : Young’s double slit experiment explained in a classical and in a quantum world. It's worth having a look ! Note : it's seems the link doesn't...

  • PhD in France…

    14 juillet 2007 ( #Recent research work )

    I often get applications from students wishing to start a PhD in France . Therefore, I think it’s necessary to clarify the eligibility conditions for a PhD funding grant from the French ministry of research (the standard grant in France, but there exist...

  • US-French collaboration

    06 février 2007 ( #Recent research work )

    For two weeks, we’ll be welcoming at Marseille Prof. Steve Blair and Colby Wilson from Utah University ( Salt Lake City, ). We also welcome Mr Farhad Madhavi for three months. This is part of an ongoing international collaboration funded by NSF international...

  • Any future for the CNRS ?

    26 juin 2007 ( #Nanophotonics pick )

    So it didn’t take long to the newly elected French government to threaten (again) the CNRS. Now, the transfer of CNRS researchers to universities appears intended, giving a large power to universities deans, and totally weaking the CNRS institution. This...

    As member of the OMNT “materials and components for optics” committee, I regularly give a selection and a brief description of articles, that I found particularly relevant to the field. Here is my latest selection : "Generation of optical Schrödinger...

  • Review Nanoholes

    10 avril 2007 ( #Nanophotonics pick )

    Drilling holes of nanometric dimensions in a metal film is a way conceptually simple to realize new nanophotonic components. In spite of its visible simplicity, a hole drilled in an opaque screen still inspires new perspectives of applications. In a review...

  • [Edit] Wenger on defeat, discipline, Barcelona

    25 février 2016

    Arsene Wenger speaks about Barcelona: "They are better than us, everybody knows that, but I think we could’ve won the game tonight if we kept the discipline until the end." Obviously thinking about ICFO, wasn't he? Let's follow coach Wenger's advice....

  • Fresnel diffraction experiment 1/7: official trailer

    24 janvier 2020

    Is there light in the center of a shadow from a black disk? What is the shadow of a hole milled in an opaque screen? Can adding light to light create darkness? The Institut Fresnel releases a series of short videos answering various questions about light...

  • End of year thinking: stay true to yourself

    21 décembre 2016

    Good period to take some distance from our daily routine and think about ourselves. But who are we by the way? True individuals or mirrors of somebody else? Think of it, and til next time, live like a nanopirate! Warning: the video below is giving the...

  • Rejection rate at CLEO Europe EQEC

    09 mars 2015

    As we had a large number of submitted abstracts but a limited number of slots at the conference, the selection process was very fierce. About 50% of abstracts could be selected for talks, 25% for poster and unfortunately we had to reject about 25% of...
