Aristide Lemaître PhD, HDR

CNRS Senior Researcher (DR2)

 

 

Aristide Lemaître received his Ph.D degree in 1999 at the University of Paris 6, for his study of the magneto-optical properties of II-VI diluted magnetic semiconductor heterostructures. He was then granted an individual Marie-Curie fellowship to investigate the optical properties of InAs quantum dots at the University of Sheffield (UK). He joined the CNRS-LPN (Marcoussis) in 2001 as a permanent researcher. His research activities are focused on the epitaxial growth and the physics of III-V heterostructures. For the last 15 years, he has conducted research on ferromagnetic semiconductors. He now investigates the growth and physics of topological insulators. He has a well-recognized expertise in the epitaxy of high finesse microcavities for quantum optics applications, as polariton manipulation, single photon and photon pair generation. His structures are at the state of art, yielding numerous collaborations with research groups in France and abroad. He is the coauthors of more than 360 publications in peer-reviewed journals.
