Dr. Christophe Peroz, Ph.D in Physics, is currently interested on nanoscience and nanotechnologies especially nanoimprint technology and sol-gel chemistry for innovative applications. He keeps also an eye on development of superconductivity. Christophe is graduated from the University of Grenoble (France) in 2000 and he has obtained his Ph.D. degree from the University of Grenoble in 2003 for work on the the understanding and applications of superconducting thin films (low and high Tc) under the supervision of Dr Catherine Villard in CNRS (French National Center for Scientific Research). He has helped to understand the origin of dissipation in superconductors on current and has showed the high potential of HTc thin films as Fault Current Limiter as well as AC and DC voltage lines. Between 2003 and 2004, he was Scientific Representative in the Embassy of France in Peking (China) for which he established a cartography of chineses R&D politics in nanoscience and nanotechnology. After that, he continued his research in CEA-Grenoble (Atomic Energy Agency) on superconductivity and demonstrated the fabrication of HTc superconducting nanobridges as nanobolometers in the frame of a fellowship from French National Center for Spatial Studies. From 2005 to 2007, Dr. Peroz was a postdoctoral fellow in the group of Professor Yong Chen in LPN-CNRS and in Saint-Gobain Research, where he developed nanoimprint lithography technology and the integration of nanostructures into microfluidic chip as sensor. His works are focused on soft nanoimprint of sol-gel materials (UV or thermal) and the interplay between nanostructuration and chemistry. He participated in several European projects and was the lab coordinator of one European Network of Research Phoremost. Christophe has also managed several under and graduated students. In December 2007, Christophe moved to the United States to pursue his works in nanoimprint and nanophotonics as a Research Scientist for aBeam Technologies and he works currently in the Molecular Foundry in LBNL-Berkeley where he continues his research on imprintings, fluidics and photonics at the nanometer scale.
