Yvain Carpentier is Associate Professor of Physics at the University Lille 1 since September 2011 when he joined the ANATRAC (Analysis of Traces) research team at the Laboratory of Physics, Lasers, Atoms and Molecules (PhLAM). During a PhD at the University Paris 11 in Orsay (France) and a Postdoc at the Friedrich Schiller University in Jena (Germany), he used chemical reactors (premixed flat flames and laser pyrolysis) to produce aromatic molecules to carbonaceous nanograins relevant for Astrophysics. He employed various techniques including especially REMPI spectroscopy, Raman microscopy, FTIR to analyze spectroscopically these species at the interface between the gas-phase and the solid-state physics. He managed to link some of their spectroscopic behaviors to their structural properties. In the ANATRAC group, he works in particular on a technique based on laser desorption / laser ionization / time-of-flight mass spectrometry to analyze species adsorbed on aerosols, especially soot particles. He couples original ionization sources (118, 157 nm) in order to detect selectively or not various classes of molecules at trace-level.
