Welcome to Samuel Métais! A new member of Institut Fresnel team

Samuel started his studies at the ESPCI Paris, an engineering school covering physics, chemistry, and biology from which he graduated in 2013. He then proceeded to a master’s degree in Condensed Matter Physics from the ICFP program of University Paris-Sud, awarded in 2014. He received his Ph.D. from Sorbonne University in 2019 for his works on applied wave physics, with applications to radio waves and acoustics.

Samuel pursued his research abroad, in Baltimore (U.S.A.), at the Johns Hopkins University as Post-Doctoral fellow in the groups of Mark A. Foster and Amy C. Foster from 2019 to 2021. He there expanded his focus to optics, with experiments from fiber optics and photonic chips to hyperspectral fluorescence microscopy.
His research interest covers fundamental wave physics, and multi-wave phenomena which led him to join the Crimson Project as a Post-Doctoral fellow in Hervé Rigneault’s lab to develop broadband coherent Raman spectroscopy and imaging.
