Design of π-conjugated (co)polymers
Functional Polymers for photovoltaics, optoelectronics, batteries, energy, displays, etc.
Education and Experience
After receiving a Ph.D. in Polymer chemistry (under the guidance of Dr Yves GNANOU and Pr Didier ASTRUC) at the University of Bordeaux 1 (in 1996), and completing a post-doctoral fellowship at University of Akron with Professor R. P. QUIRK, Eric CLOUTET became a CNRS (the french national center for scientific research) researcher in 1997. He was recruited at the University of Paris 13 in the laboratory of research on macromolecules to work with Dr A. SIOVE on the design and synthesis of new carbazole-based electro-luminescent polymer materials (1997-2000). He was transferred in 2001 in the laboratory of organic polymer chemistry at the University of Bordeaux 1 in the group of Professor H. CRAMAIL. He became a CNRS Senior Researcher in 2012. He is currently working in the group of Professor Georges HADZIIOANNOU on the design and formulation of advanced functional polymers for applications in energy, optoelectronics, batteries, photovoltaics, (flexible) displays, etc.
