Short description: 

Mathieu Kociak is researcher at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). He received a Ph.D from the University of Paris XIth on superconductivity and plasmons in carbon nanotubes in 2001. He then moved to the Meijo university (Nagoya, Japan) where he performed in situ transport measurements on individual carbon nanotubes. Afterwards, he spent one year in the Condensed Matter Laboratory (SPEC) working on designing a Magnetic Force Microscope. He then got a position at the Laboratory for Solid States Physics (LPS) in Orsay, France. His main research interests include the study of the correlations between the structure, and the optical and electronic properties of individual nanoobjects. He is currently working especially on nanooptics with fast electrons using EELS and nanocathodoluminescence (STEM-CL). He has transferred his STEM-CL technology to the Attolight compagny. He is the scientific leader of CHROMATEM, a ultra-high energy resolution electron microscopy project, and the director of the french electron microscopy network METSA. Mathieu's awards include the Guinier Prize of the french Physical Society (2002), the quadrennial FEI-EM award (2012) of the European Microscopy Society, the Innovation Prize of the university Paris-Sud (2014) and the Agar Medal of the Royal Society of Microscopy (2015).
