07/2013 Sébastien will give a lecture on molecular plasmonics during the international summer school on plasmonics that will take place on the island of Corsica at the end of July.
06/2013 We are co-organizing a summer school on Nanosciences that will tak place in June in a golf resort near Paris.
01/2013 Mickaël successfully defended his PhD thesis entiteld "Nano-Antennes Assemblées sur ADN et Alimentées par un Émetteur Quantique Unique" (DNA templated nanoantennas driven by a single quantum emitter").
07/2012 Our work on dye molecule driven nanoantennas published in Nature Communications was highlighted by several French science outreach sites for the general public (Sciences & Avenir, Futura-Sciences, Industrie.com)
06/2011 Our research proposals "DNAntenna" and "TWINS" were selected by the French National Research Agency (ANR)
06/2011 Région Ile de France will fund our research project "NADAA" on dynamic DNA templated gold nanostructures

We are interested in the bottom-up fabrication of plasmon-based optical antennas to enhance light-matter interactions at the nanoscale. In particular, we develop DNA templated fabrication techniques to produce nanoparticle groupings with controlled chemical environments. We preferentially use gold particles but have experience with silver colloids and semiconductor quantum dots. Optical antennas are used for applications ranging from quantum optics (to optimize single photon sources) to sensing (Raman scattering or plasmon rulers).
