Franck Rabilloud joined the Laboratoire de Spectrométrie Ionique et Moléculaire, University of Lyon, Villeurbanne, France, in 2001, as an Assistant Professor after obtaining a Ph.D. degree in chemical physics at the University of Toulouse, Toulouse, France, on the study of electronic and structural properties and stability of small mixed silver bromide clusters in gas phase. He became a Postdoc at the University of Valladolid, Valladolid, Spain, on dynamics of fullerenes encapsulated inside a carbon nanotube. His work mainly focuses on the theoretical study of structural, electronic, and optical properties of complexes, clusters, and nanostructures. Rabilloud is a specialist in DFT and TDDFT calculations as well as ab initio quantum chemistry based on the wave function. He also develops empirical potentials to investigate specific systems or particular properties. Rabilloud currently serves as an Associate Professor at the Institute of Light and Matter, University of Lyon, Villeurbanne, France.
