Dr. Amélie Bordage

After studying physics, Amélie Bordage received in 2009 a doctoral degree in physics and chemistry of materials from Université Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris, France). Her PhD work, based on a coupled theoretical-experimental XAS approach applied to minerals and done at IMPMC (Paris, France), received in 2010 the Haüy-Lacroix PhD award from the French Society of Mineralogy and Cristallography.

Following a first post-doctoral stay in the group of Prof. Stéphanie Rossano at Université Paris-Est Marne-la-Vallée, she joined in 2011 during 2 years the group of Dr. György Vankó at MTA Wigner Research Centre for Physics (Budapest, Hungary); she continued to work with a coupled theoretical-experimental approach of XAS but now to investigate spin crossover compounds. In 2013 she moved to Institut Néel (Grenoble, France) in the group of Dr. Jean-Louis Hazemann for a project on the CO2-H2O system in supercritical conditions by Raman spectroscopy.

Amélie joined CNRS as a permanent researcher in 01/2014 to work in the group of Prof. Anne Bleuzen at ICMMO. Her research focuses on the characterization of the structure-property relationship in (photo)magnetic (nano)materials by transition metals K-edge XAS and derivatives techniques (HERFD-XAS, XES, XMCD). Her materials of interests are Prussian Blue Analogs, with three main applications : PBA as functional material, PBA as precursor of oxides/alloys and PBA as model-compounds for the development of a new methodology to quantify small structural distortions from K-edge XMCD.
