Laurent Cerutti Editor

Laurent Cerutti is an Associate Professor at the Université de Montpellier since 2006. He obtained his PhD in 2004 from the Université de Montpellier on the molecular beam epitaxy of Sb-based VCSELs. He spent 2 years at the Polytechnic University of Madrid in the group of the Pr. E. Calleja where he developed the first GaN nanocolumns grown by MBE on Si(100). Since 2006, his research activities focus on the development and the MBE growth of Sb-based photonic devices, mainly for the development of MIR VCSELs, lasers grown on Si and plasmonic structures. He has been involved in several European projects (FP6, FP7, ITN, H2020) and has been involved/coordinated several national projects. He is author or co-author of ~ 100 publications in peer-reviewed journal, conference proceedings and two international patents. In 2016, he was guest editor for the special issue of the Int. Molecular-Beam Epitaxy (MBE) conference in Journal of Crystal Growth.
