Between 1991 and 1998, he studied the optical and electronic properties of heterostructures SiGe/Si and contributed to their integrations in devices for microelectronics (TBH, MOSFET) and for optoelectronics (photodetector, photovoltaic). He was the head of the group ‘Matériaux et Composants Micro-Optoélectronique’ of the ‘Laboratoire de Physique de la Matière’ at INSA Lyon where he studied the electronic and optical properties of Ge/Si nanostructures or InAs/InP quantum dots or Si nanocrystals in dielectrics. Since 2001, as coordinator of a platform of nanoscopy he put in place, he developed electric measurements by atomic force
microscopy (AFM) with conductive tips to sound the local electronic properties of nanostructures ACY-738 of semiconductors with strong application potentiality. Since 2003, he MK-8931 in vitro is involved in the study of the third-generation high-efficiency photovoltaic cells where he has coordinated an ANR-PV project in 2006. He is a member of the team ‘Spectroscopie et nanomatériaux’ of the INL. Its whole research activity gave rise to more than 200 publications in scientific Selleck 4SC-202 journals and in symposium proceedings. MQ finished his career in 2013 at LaMCoS, in the Group of Models Lubrication and Lubricants
(ML2). His activities include the study of fluid lubrication mechanisms using physical methods (optical, Raman and fluorescence) and the consideration of liquid free surface and wetting phenomena. DP obtained his Ph.D. degree in 2007 at Ecole Centrale de Lyon (France) in the field of Tribology and Materials Science. After a postdoctoral position at the Institute for Material Science (Seville, Spain), he joined INSA of Lyon as an assistant professor in 2010. Currently, he is conducting his research activities in the Mechanics Laboratory
Contacts and Dynamics (LaMCoS). His main scientific activity focuses on experimental BCKDHA studies in rheology, tribology, and elastohydrodynamic lubrication. PV graduated from INSA Lyon where he defended a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering in 1985. In 2002, he got a CNRS position as a senior scientist (Directeur de Recherche). His scientific current interests are focused on (i) the rheological and tribological behavior of multiphase or complex fluids under severe conditions, (ii) the development of multiphysics and multiscale models (by FE, FSI, MD methods) in the context of thin film lubrication, and (iii) the in situ techniques (i.e., colorimetric interferometry, Raman microspectrometry, and nanoparticle fluorescence) that make it possible to map physical parameters within highly confined thin films. Since May 2013, PV is the academic holder of the SKF research chair on ‘Lubricated interfaces for the future’ funded by SKF, a world leader company in rolling bearing manufacturing. JMB obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1996 at the University of Montpellier in the field of Condensed Matter. After two postdoctoral positions in Grenoble, he joined INSA of Lyon as an associate professor in 1999.
