BARON Thierry

Dr. Thierry Baron (41 years old), director of research at CNRS is leading the team working in the field of nanomaterials and their integration. From 1993 to 1998, he has worked on the solid source molecular beam epitaxy of II-VI compounds for semiconductors laser devices. He joined CNRS in 1998 working in close collaboration with the technological platform of LETI, Grenoble. He has studied the elaboration of Si quantum dots and single electron effects in nanoparticles by local probe techniques. These nanoparticles have been integrated in memory devices.

His current research is dedicated to the organisation of nanostructures, epitaxy of Si, Ge nanowires by CVD, and the study of their physical properties. He recently launches an activity on the epitaxy by MOCVD of As and P III-V based compounds on a silicon plateform. Thierry Baron has authored or co-authored more than 120 scientific publications in peer reviewed journals, and 13 patents. His H index is currently 26.
