Dr. Vincent Mortet, Ph.D. started his research carrier at University of Valenciennes and Hainaut-Cambresis, France in collaboration with the LaBoMaP (Laboratoire Bourguignon des Matériaux et Procédés), Cluny, France where he completed his Ph.D. thesis in 2001. Between 2001 and 2004, he worked as research associate at the Institute for Materials Research (IMO), Hasselt University, Belgium and the Institute of Physics of the Czech Academy of Sciences between, Czech Republic within the frame of the European Research Training Network Project “Doped Diamond Devices and Sensors”. He continued to work at the Institute for Materials Research until 2010. In 2011, he joined the Laboratory for Analysis and Architecture of Systems (LAAS-CNRS) in Toulouse. In 2013, he was awarded a Purkyně Fellowship from the Czech Academy of Sciences, and he returned to the Institute of Physics where he has taken the lead of the Materials for Nanosystems and Biointerfaces (MNB) Research Group.
Dr. V. Mortet has been studying synthesis, properties and potential applications of thin films, particularly aluminum nitride, boron nitride, silicon carbide, and diamond. These research cover physical and chemical vapor deposition methods, plasma characterization, evaluation of structural, optical and electrical properties of thin films, micro-processing technologies, devices characterizations as well as the development of deposition and characterization systems. He is most known for his work on the fabrication of diamond-based surface acoustic waves devices. His current interest focuses on diamond layer synthesis (e.g., boron doped epitaxial and polycrystalline diamond layers, porous diamond layers) and their potentials electronic at high electric fields and electro-mechanical (Surface acoustic wave bio-sensors) and electrochemical applications.
