Dr. Bernard Fraisse is a Research Engineer of the French National Scientific Research Council (CNRS) at the Laboratory for Aggregates, Interfaces and Materials for Energy (AIME), belonging to the Charles Gerhardt Institute for Molecular Chemistry and Materials (ICGM).
This primary duties and responsibilities can be summarized as follow:
- In charge of the whole X-ray equipment of the X-Ray and Gamma Radiation facilities and performing X-ray measurements on powder and thin films samples for the AIME users, for the entire community of the ICGM and for external and industrial users as well.
- Ensuring the day to day maintenance for all powders and epitaxial films diffractometers.
- Focusing on the improvement and development of in situ operando characterization of new electrode materials for Li-ion batteries using X-ray diffraction techniques, Mössbauer, Raman and infrared spectroscopies.
- Developing and implementing strategic plan that identifies overall goals, analyzes usage and depreciation and provides a timeline for instrumentation upgrade and replacement.
- Maintaining and improving a web-based booking system providing users easy access to the instruments and data.
- Making recommendations regarding improvements to the existing facility to ensure operations remain at optimal efficiency.
- Responsible for developing policy and procedures related to routine and non-routine in house repair and maintenance.
- Additional responsibilities include developing training modules to complement graduate student courses and instructional tools for assessing results and data.
Thème de RechercheMaterial characterization using X-Ray diffraction:
- in situ low temperature and high temperature measurements on polycrystalline samples
- in situ operando measurements on electrochemical cells
- high resolution measurements on epitaxial films
