Sylvain Iséni

Sylvain IseniSylvain ISÉNI was born Gien, France, on October 17th 1988. He graduated from the University of Orléans (France) with a Master of Science and an engineering diploma in 2011. The same year he spends six months as an ERASMUS student in the group of Prof. P. Bruggeman at TU/e Eindhoven (The Netherlands). Starting from 2012, he was a PhD candidate at the Leib­niz In­sti­tu­te for Plas­ma Sci­ence and Tech­no­lo­gy, INP Greifswald where he received his PhD in Physics in 2015 from the University of Greifswald (Germany) with a study focusing on laser diagnostics of an atmospheric pressure plasma jet for biomedical applications.

After a post-doc at the Research Group in the Energetics of Ionized Media -GREMI- in Orléans, (France), he obtain a full researcher position at the French National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in 2017. His research topics deal with non-equilibrium –non-thermal– plasmas and plasma processes for environmental and biological purposes. This involves the development of original micro-plasma sources and the study of elementary processes in discharges and plasma-liquid interaction. His working field is also dealing with plasma diagnostics with a strong focus on optical emission spectroscopy to study key plasma parameters (e.g. electric field, electron density, neutral gas temperature, hydrodynamics...). He is also interested in laser diagnostics method to measure absolute densities of reactive species.
