Eric Collet is professor of Physics, studying photoinduced phase transitions in molecular materials and their ultrafast dynamics:
- from microscopic to macroscopic,
- from electronic excitation to structural trapping.
He is developping advanced structural studies, combined with ultrafast techniques like femtosecond optical pump-probe spectroscopy and ultrafast X-ray Science (diffraction and XANES) at synchrotron and X-FEL.
Eric Collet has been awarded the Louis Ancel price of the French Physical Society in 2017 for his achievements in condensed matter physics.
