Dr. Jean-Luc Fillaut (DR2 CNRS UMR 6226, Sciences chimiques de Rennes) obtained his PhD degree at the University of Rennes I in 1986 under the supervision of Prof. Pierre Dixneuf. He became a post-doc at the University of Lausanne, Chemistry Department as a FNS research fellow. In 1998, he entered CNRS as Chargé de Recherche in the team of Prof. D. Astruc (University of Bordeaux1) for 10 years, where he was studying metallodendrimers for electron transfer and sensing. In 1999, he joined the group “Organometalliques: Matériaux et Catalyse” in Rennes where he developed research in the field of Supramolecular materials and external-field responsive transition metal complexes.
He co-authored more than 75 Publications with review committee.

Research interests

Topic 1 (Dr. Huriye Akdas-Kilig / Dr. Jean-Luc Fillaut)

Octupolar coordination complexes for second and third order NLO: Tools to enhance NLO properties Application to 3D stereolithography by photopolymerisation initiated by two-photon absorption. From synthesis to devices.

Topic 2 (Dr. Jean-Luc Fillaut)

This topic is devoted to the design, fabrication, in-depth study and optimization of systems for the rapid detection and identification of chemicals. Our work focuses on a synthetic route to novel classes of sensitive compounds, in particular tunable luminescent materials for sensor applications. Most efforts concern now the design of supported materials in which these sensitive compounds could afford the same properties as in solution.
