Dr. Marc Chaigneau
Marc Chaigneau received his PhD in solid-state physics from the University of Nantes in 2007. He joined the PICM lab (the Laboratory of Physics of Interfaces and Thin Films) at Ecole Polytechnique as a postdoctoral associate in 2008 and was appointed tenured researcher in 2010. His research activities were concentrated on the instrumental development of Tip-Enhanced Raman spectroscopy (TERS, aka NanoRaman) and stimulated TERS, as well as its application in strain measurements in semiconductors, nano-objects (CNTs, graphene) and the investigation of organic molecules at the nanoscale. A coordinator of national funded projects, Marc Chaigneau is the author of three patents, one book chapter and more than 50 articles in peer-reviewed journals. He received the ASTRE (Actions of Support for Technology and Research in Essonne) Prize in 2013. Marc Chaigneau joined HORIBA Scientific in 2015 to oversee development, applications and worldwide marketing of Raman spectroscopy products coupled with Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) for TERS. He received the IP Award from the HORIBA group for innovative intellectual property in 2016.
