Seminar announcement flyer

Our next "Open Your Mind" seminar is scheduled for Friday May 22nd and will take place at Paris Descartes University between 1:30 pm and 3 pm in Salle des Conferences (R229, 2nd floor), Centre Universitaire des Saints-Pères, 45 rue des Saints-Pères, 75006 Paris. A lecture on "Biphotonic molecules in the service of biology or defense " will be given by Chantal ANDRAUD, Research Director and head of the research group “Chemistry for Optics” at the Ecole Normale Supérieure - Lyon.

Biphotonic light absorption spans different fields of applications from biology and therapy to defense. The design of chromophores for these applications is strongly related to excited state properties of molecules. During this seminar, our molecular engineering work will be presented in the view of biological imaging, singlet oxygen generation for photodynamic therapy and optical power limiting. Besides the molecular design, the compatibility of molecules with their environment will be addressed for each applications.
