Department of Inorganic Materials Chemistry (DCMI)
Our activities are focused on preparing inorganic materials and hybrid materials for magnetic, optical or biomedical properties. The elaboration concepts rely on the association of entities of different nature, by chemical or physical ways. Atomic scale modelisation tools are also used to characterize specific classes of systems.
We are interested in controlling the size and composition of oxide nanoparticles and grafting designed molecules at the oxide surfaces, designing and elaborating oxide thin films for spintronics, organising from the nano to the meso scale, designing hybrid organic – inorganic functional materials, investigating the chemistry-biology interface, elucidating the atomic scale properties of specific classes of materials.
