Welcome to Dr. Adrien Chauvet’s group.

Our goal is to learn from Nature to help answer the challenges of today’s society.

In practical terms, our group aims at using the latest development in laser technology to investigate biological protein complexes and solid state devices that are involved in proton, electron and energy transfer. By means of laser-based spectroscopy we are able to watch chemistry “live”, i.e. to follow molecular dynamics in the femto-second time scale and cellular response within micro-seconds.
