EMERGENCE@INC2020: MATUMBA project (Ultrathon Materials under Argon Bombardment) (coordinator: Damien Aureau, EPIgroup)
The MATUMBA project concerns a fine physico-chemical study of two-dimensional (2D) materials such as graphene or transition metal dichalcogenides. The main objective is the use of ion bombardment sources using ultravacuum argon ion beams to modify and characterize ultra-thin systems. Thanks to a precise control of the parameters of the gun and the understanding of the induced surface reactivity, the ultimate physico-chemical characterization as well as the eventual functionalization of these nano-objects (sheets, single layers) are hoped.

- CNRS-Momentum "Hierarchical assembly based on inorganic building blocks:
a bio-inspired photo-catalytic platform
" (MIM; coordinator: C. Falaise),  2019-2021
The project consists in combining inorganic functional clusters (photo-sensitizer, redox mediator, catalytic unit) with supramolecular connectors such as natural macrocyclic sugars. In his project, Clément proposes to study the fundamental mechanisms that govern the processes of interaction and association in an aqueous medium that take place between organic and inorganic components. The ultimate goal is to develop original photo-catalytic systems that allow either the production of hydrogen or the conversion of CO2 into solar fuels.

Preemergence project: "Development of a preindustrial reactor for the passivation of III Vs semiconductors in liquid ammonia"; (coordinator: Anne-Marie Goncalves (EPI), C2N partner, period 2019-2021). This 18-month project targets the development of a liquid ammonia reactor allowing the passivation of 1 to 3 InP wafers as well as optoelectronic devices designed by C2N.
