Alexandre Bouhelier is a permanent Staff Member of the Centre National de la recherche Scientifique (CNRS) at the Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Carnot de Bourgogne in Dijon, France. His current interests are focused on the development of plasmonics devices including the control of optical antennas. He holds a doctorate in physics (2001) from the University of Basel, Basel, Switzerland, where he worked in near-field optics with Professors Dr. D.W. Pohl and Dr. H.-J.Güntherodt. From 2001 to 2003, A. Bouhelier was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation to work at the Institute of Optics, University of Rochester, New York, NY, USA in the group of Professor L. Novotny. From 2003 to 2005, Bouhelier was awarded a distinguished postdoctoral position at the Center for Nanoscale Materials, Argonne National Laboratory, Ill, USA working with Dr. G. Wiederrecht. While holding his postdoctoral positions, Bouhelier worked on near-field mediated nonlinear phenomena. Dr. Bouhelier has authored or coauthored more than 50 scientific publications and contributed five book chapters, and he holds 2 patents. Since 2008, he has been an Associate Editor at Optics Express and an Advisory Editor of the volume Nanostructured Surfaces of the reference work Comprehensive Nanoscience and Technology published by Elsevier.
