Benoit Dubertret joined the CNRS in 2002 at the Paris School of Physics and Industrial Chemistry (ESPCI ParisTech), after spending 6 years in the United States. First at MIT, later returning as a post-doc at Rockefeller University (Manhattan, NY) with Albert Libchaber, a pioneer physicist in the interface between physics and biology.
Conscious of the interest and the perspectives offered by nanoparticles, he recruited and led a team of 20 researchers dedicated to Quantum Dots at the Laboratory of Physics and Materials Study (Laboratoire de Physique et d’Étude des Matériaux – LPEM) within the ESPCI. This team, also called “Parisian Quantum Dots”, has become a leading voice within the Quantum Dot community.
Benoit Dubertret is now on leave from the CNRS and is fully dedicated to the development of Nexdot.
