Patrice Genevet, winner of the Fabry - de Gramont 2021 prize awarded by the Société Française d'Optique (07/2022)
The Fabry-de Gramont Prize of the Société Française d'Optique was established in memory of the physicist Charles Fabry (1867-1945), first general manager of the Institut d'Optique, famous for his work on interference, and of Mr. Armand de Gramont (1879-1962), industrial optician, founder of the Institute of Optics.
The prize rewards a young researcher (under 40 years old), recognized internationally, whose research were noted for their quality, originality and potential impact.
Patrice Genevet is rewarded for his innovative work on optical metasurfaces.

i-LAB 2019 Contest : EasyGaN 2022 awarded (06/2019)EasyGaN 2022, spin-off from CRHEA in 2017, is the 5th winner of the i-LAB 2019 competition in the category "Electronics, signal processing and instrumentation". This young company created by CRHEA researchers in collaboration with former students, was built on the know-how developed at CRHEA on growth by molecular beam epitaxy of GaN on silicon.
Aimé Cotton Award 2017: Patrice Genevet awarded (04/2019)The French Physics Society awarded the 2017 Aimé-Cotton Prize to Patrice Genevet, a CNRS researcher in the CRHEA laboratory in Sophia-Antipolis, for all of his theoretical and experimental work on optical metasurfaces.
Founded by the Council of the French Physics Society in 1953 to honor the memory of Aimé COTTON, this prize is awarded annually to a young physicist working in the field of atomic and molecular physics. For technical reasons, the Aimé-Cotton 2017 prize was not awarded on time. So, two prizes (2017 and 2018) were selected by the Aimé-Cotton prize jury during its last deliberation. The prize will be awarded at the 25th General Conference of the French Physics Society to be held at the Nantes Congress Center from 8 to 12 July 2019. Read more...
