Affiliation : IMEP-CNRS-INPG, France
Research Activities :
At IMEP we are studying thin films made by sol-gel for applications in the field of integrated optics. We had done a lot of work on the nonlinear characterisation of semiconductor-doped thin glass films. Actually we are focusing on rare-earth doped materials for active devices. We are investigating the potential of nano-crystallised films and the increase of active properties by using an organic nano-cage.

Molecular chemistry and Solid Organization Lab
Affiliation : University of Montpellier, CNRS
Research Activities :
Over the last few years, the work of the Laboratory has concerned the development of synthetic routes to ceramics (silicon carbides, oxycarbides, carbonitrides and oxynitrides, metal oxides, etc.) which involve the polymerisation of organometallic molecular precursors, followed by crosslinking and pyrolysis of the polymers obtained. This research has given rise to several innovative discoveries, concerning new organosilicon precursors as well as new crosslinking routes (catalytic hydrosilylation and dehydrocoupling, non-hydrolytic sol-gel process, etc...). The lab is constituted by 4 research groups each of them has several research topics  1) Nanostructured organic-inorganic hybrid materials based on silica. 2) Non-hydrolytic sol-gel process and Organic-inorganic hybrids containing organophosphorus groups. 3) Organic-inorganic lamellar hybrid materials and Magnetic molecular materials and 4) Surface chemistry.
