Nedjma Bendiab

I am an Associate Professor at Université Grenoble Alpes and Institut Néel.
Adresse : Institut Néel, 25 rue des Martyrs, BP 166, 38402 Grenoble cedex 09, France.
Téléphone : (+33/0) 4 56 38 70 74.

Research topics:

My main research interests focus on the properties of low dimensional sp2 carbon systems such as carbon nanotubes, fullerenes, graphite, graphene and more recently on dichalcogenides properties (MoS2, h-BN, WSe2, TaS2, ..ect).
Those materials have remarkable structural, vibrational, electronic and mechanical.
My experimental skills that I use to understand their properties include Raman spectroscopy, inelastic x-ray scattering, and neutron and X-ray diffraction. I also have growth CVD skills (PECVD of carbon nanotubes, synthesis under pressure of new nanomaterials) and electrical conductivity measurements. In addition to all these experimental tools, ab initio calculations in collaboration with theoreticians are elaborate to understand the physical properties of the most promising compounds.

I thus worked on:
• Optical phonons and structural properties of carbon nanotubes
• the durability of the pressurized carbon nanotube structure.
• Superconductivity of in intercalated graphite compounds.
• Optimization and growth CVD mechanisms of carbon nanotubes and graphene.
• Opto-mechanical properties of an adjustable optical cavity based on multilayer graphene and its use as a platform for hybrid systems (single molecule detection)
• Optoelectronic properties of an hybrid carbon nanotube device which was possible by the development of an optical cryostat allowing optical phonons and transport measurement down to 4K.
