Daniel Aubert Technician R&D

I work on materials for heterogeneous catalysis. I am focused on their characterisation and I evaluate their catalytic performances in pollutants oxidation (carbone monoxide, COV, formaldehyde, toluene). I also manage all the catalysis setups in the laboratory.

Maxime Delporte PhD student

The aim of our work is to design and study inorganic heterogeneous catalyst materials for end of engine exhaust pipe systems. Textural, structural and chemical analysis provide us information to understand and thereby improve our synthesis, and subsequently the catalytic activity and the stability of our catalysts for the targeted oxidation reaction.

Quentin Flamant Saint-Gobain Research Scientist

My current research aims at developing ceramic materials with exceptional mechanical, thermal and optical properties. For this purpose, I rely on novel concepts coming from the field of metamaterials, which I try to combine with the excellent intrinsic properties of technical ceramics.

Kevin Guy PhD student

My PhD consists of the synthesis of transition metal nitrides and carbides, in particular molybdenum materials (Mo5N6, Mo2N, Mo2C). A new original synthetic route, using nanoscale precursors, allows increasing the physico-chemical properties of the products obtained. The nitrides and carbides are then tested to catalyze the water-gas shift reaction (CO + H2O  CO2 + H2), useful in particular for proton exchange membrane fuel cells. The ultimate goal is to find a viable alternative to platinum, the industrial reference for the catalysis of this reaction. This work is a collaboration between University Rennes, NIMS (Japan) and the LSFC (France).

Helena Kaper CNRS Research Scientist

My topics of research are focused on materials for heterogeneous catalysis; specifically for oxidation of pollutants (CO, CH4, toluene, formaldehyde). I study diverse synthesis pathways (Pecchini, sol-gel, hydrothermal, melted salts). I then study the gas-materials interactions in order to better understand their catalytic performances.

Tanguy Lacondemine Post-doctoral Fellow

My work within the LSFC is entirely dedicated to the AMITIE project (Additive Manufacture Initiative for Transnational Innovation in Europe: Marie Skłodowska Curie Grant Agreement 734342), and is focused on the elaboration and characterisation of ceramics obtained by additive manufacturing processes. Different 3D printing techniques are studied thanks to collaborations with our European academic partners.

Alexey Novikov Post-doctoral Fellow

My current research project focuses on the development, shaping and characterization of new porous ceramic materials. These materials possess a hierarchical and well-controlled (at all levels) porosity. In order to produce such materials and to improve their mechanical strength, I rely on chemical synthesis, suitable formulation and shaping techniques.

Hassan Saad PhD Student

My PhD is focused on the formation and characterisation of bio-inspired ceramics. The aim is to obtain a composite ceramic/ceramic which enhanced resistance to crack propagations thanks to a multi-scale texturation. I use several mechanical tests (flexion, SENB, extraction) and microstructural characterisation techniques (SEM, EDX, Raman...) to understand the reinforcement mechanisms of the material.

Julien Schmitt CNRS Research Scientist

My research is focused on the formation of organised composite materials, such as "artificial nacres". I study both the synthesis of anisotropic particles that can be used as "bricks" in the material and the (self-)assembly methods to organise and shape the composite.
