February 2014
A new Raman spectrometer has been insalled in the LASIR laboratory

This microspectrometer has been financed thanks to the Labex CaPPA. This sytem is an “HR evolution” from the Horiba scientific company. Working with a red laser, it makes it possible to measure samples both under the microscope as well as […]

PhD defense of Aany Sofia Lilly Thankamony

My PhD work focused on two topics: (i) the extension of Dynamic Nuclear Polarisation (DNP) to inorganic and hybrid materials and (ii) the development of advanced NMR methods to probe the atomic-level structure of solids. In the field of DNP […]

PhD defense of Bruno Debus

This work deals with the study of photochromic organic nanoparticles of bridged-Hexaarylbiimidazoles (HABIs) molecules. Two synthesis paths were proposed. On the one hand, laser photofragmentation (I) for which photochromic reaction and matter fragmentation occur simultaneously. On the other hand, the […]

Seminar Prof. Hiroshi Miyasaka

Poly(N-vinylcarbazole) (PVCz) is one of the most well-known organic photoconductive materials. Although much more efficient materials have been developed in recent years, PVCz and its derivatives are still regarded as representative references and widely utilized as building units in advanced […]

Ludovic Duponchel, Full Professor at the LASIR Lab in the University of Lille, was elected Chairman of the French Chemometrics Society

This scholarly society, under the auspices of the French Statistical Society, bring together Academics and Manufacturers so that they can discuss about the new challenges of the chemical data analysis.

Seminar Dr. Benoit Coasne

Alors que les matériaux microporeux (taille de pore inférieure à 2 nm) tels que les zéolithes ou les MOF (Metal Organic Framework) possèdent des propriétés d’adsorption et de catalyse très avantageuses, leur utilisation est souvent limitée par des problèmes de […]

Seminar Prof. Rosana Mariel Romano

The interaction of a molecule with electromagnetic radiation can produce a series of different processes, starting for the absorption of a photon. If the incident photon has enough energy to promote one electron to an unoccupied molecular orbital, in a […]
