Claudine Katan

CNRS, Université de Rennes 1 - UMR6226, France


Claudine Katan received her Ph.D. degree in physics (nonlinear optics) from the University of Strasbourg (ULP), France, in 1992. She subsequently served as Lecturer of physics at the University of Rennes (UR1), France, before being appointed as a CNRS Research Investigator in the Physics Department at Rennes in 1993. Until 2003, her research interests concerned the properties of molecular charge-transfer crystals and topology of electron densities mainly through approaches based on density functional theory. She then joined the Chemistry Department, interspersed by a two-year stay at FOTON-INSA (2010–2012). Her current research is devoted to theoretical approaches—from modeling to state-of-the-art electronic structure calculations—for structural, electronic, and linear/nonlinear optical properties (e.g., two-photon absorption) of molecular chromophores and hybrid perovskites. Her theoretical work is closely related to experimental research developed either in place or abroad.
