Stéphane Berciaud

Stéphane Berciaud has been assistant professor at Université de Strasbourg since 2010 and obtained his “habilitation” in 2013. He studied at the physics department of école normale supérieure (ENS) Cachan and obtained a Master’s in quantum physics in 2002. His PhD work (2003- 2006 at Université Bordeaux 1) was dedicated to single nano-object optical detection and spectroscopy methods. SB then focused on the optical and optoelectronic properties of low-dimensional carbon nanostructures (carbon nano-tubes and graphene) during two postdoctoral visits: first, at Université Bordeaux 1 in 2007, then at Columbia University from 2007 to 2010. He held a CNRS-University chair from June 2010 until June 2015, which helped him develop an independent research activity within the Nanodevices team at Institut de Physique et Chimie des Matériaux de Strasbourg. His research interests cover the vibrational, optical, optoelectronic and optomechanical properties of low-dimensional materials, including graphene, carbon nanotubes, semiconductor nanostructures and transition metal dichalcogenides, as well as heterostructures based on these materials.

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