Prof. Pascale Senellart

Pascale Senellart obtained her PhD from University Paris 6 in 2001 for her studies on microcavity polaritons. After two short postdoctoral positions in industrial laboratories, she joined the CNRS at end of 2002 at the Laboratoire de Photonique et de Nanostructures where she started a research line on cavity quantum electrodynamics with semiconductor quantum dots. In 2008, she invented a technology to fully control the coupling between a quantum dot to a microcavity, a technique that now allows her team to address many interesting challenges in the field of solid-state quantum optics. She has co-authored 120 papers in refereed journals and given more than 90 invited talks in international conferences and workshops. She was awarded of an ERC starting grant in 2011 and of the iXcore foundation in 2012. She was laureate of the CNRS silver medal in 2014, elected OSA Fellow in 2018.
