Aix-Marseille University, France, EU

Position: Research Director at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Aix-Marseille University, France

Specialization: Plasmonics, Metamaterial-based Biosensing and Laser-ablative Nanofabrication

At the NANOCON´18 conference Prof. A. V. Kabashin will present an invited lecture "Novel Laser-synthesized Nanomaterials for Biomedical Applications" at the session C - Bionanotechnology, Nanomaterials in Medicine.

Personal Background and Education:
He obtained his Ph.D. degree in 1994 from AM Prokhorov General Physics Institute, Moscow (Russia). 

From 1999 to 2008 he worked as a Research Professor at the University of Montreal (Canada).  Since 2009 he holds a Research Director position at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Aix-Marseille University, Marseille (France), as the director of the Laser & Biophotonics Research at the Lasers, Plasmas and Photonic Processes (LP3) laboratory was founded in 2000. Thanks to its activities on laser processes, LP3 established strong links with industries. LP3 is a member of the Carnot STAR (Sciences & Technologies for the Applications of Research) whose the main purpose is the promotion of applied researches in collaboration with industry.LP3 is a member of some competitiveness clusters on Photonics and imaging (OPTITEC), Microelectronics (SCS) and Energy (CapEnergies). Its main applications are related to microelectronics and photovoltaic, optical components and systems, health and life sciences, micro-manufacturing.

A. V. Kabashin also holds an Adjunct Professorship in the Institute of Lasers, Photonics and Biophotonics in State University of New York at Buffalo (USA) and an Associate Professor at the University of Sherbrooke (Canada).


Research Interests:
Andrei V Kabashin is one of the world's leading experts in plasmonics/metamaterial-based biosensing and laser-ablative nanofabrication. Its LP3 laboratory is focused on laser matter interaction in short and ultrashort temporal regimes. Studies address fundamental mechanisms induced when a pulsed laser beam interacts with matter, in order to manage the physical phenomena that control the effects of the interaction and then to develop innovative photonic processes. The latter target new diagnostics and means of analysis (LIBS, SERS, sub-picosecond X-ray imaging, time-resolved X-ray diffraction), the generation of new material (high purity nanoparticles) or materials with new properties (surface structuring) and at last the development of new manufacturing processes (subtractive and additive micro/nano technologies).
