Pierre Verlot

Pierre Verlot works in the field of Optomechanics, which studies the reciprocal interactions between light and mechanical motion. After graduating his PhD at Lab- oratoire Kastler Brossel in Paris under the supervision of Pr. Dr. Antoine Heidmann, he continues his research as a post-doctoral researcher in the groups of Pr. Dr. T.J. Kip- penberg (EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland) and Dr. O. Arcizet (Institut Néel, Grenoble, France), where he develops nov- el ultra-sensitive methods adapted to the detection and control of nanomechanical motion. In 2013, he becomes Assistant Professor at the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, where he deployes a novel research activity at Institut Lumière Matière (ILM) dedicated to the construction and study of a new nano-optomechanical platform adapted to the generalized metrological study of nanosystems. The original and efficient approach developed by Dr. Pierre Verlot provide him with state-of-the-art experience over an extended range of systems for which he has adapted and created novel solutions adapted to their ultra-sensitive detection. In the USIAS project, he will develop new tools for detecting and controlling the fundamental fluctuations in graphene-based hybrid systems.

As part of his fellowship, Pierre Verlot is working on the project GOLEM - Graphene nano-Op- tomechanics: bridging the gap between eLementary Excitations and macroscopic Motion, together with his collaborator Stéphane Berciaud.
