A DocWalker grant allowed him to spend 2 months in a laboratory in the Nanyang Technological University

In 2022, Max Meunier was one of the 6 doctoral students to win a DocWalker grant from the Academy of Excellence "Networks, Information and Digital Society", which allowed him to spend 2 months in a laboratory in Singapore. Back in France, he tells us about his experience.


How did your international mobility project start?

To characterize single-photon emitters, special detectors are needed, which CRHEA does not have. As part of a scientific collaboration with the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), we manufacture samples at the CRHEA in France and send them to Professor Weibo Gao's team in Singapore, which is equipped for these observations. This collaboration started at the same time as my thesis and will accelerate thanks to an ANR project created in 2023. When I discovered the DocWalker program, which gave me the possibility of going on site to take these measurements myself, I obviously jumped at the opportunity!
