SOPRANO stands for Spectroscopies OPtiques de matéRiaux Amorphes et NanOstructures (OPtical Spectroscopies of Amorphous mateRials and NanOstructures).

Our research activities focus on the multiscale characterization of glasses and nanostructured materials through vibrational spectroscopies (Raman, Brillouin) coupled to numerical simulation. Main topics address the understanding of thermal noise in glass thin films as well as the alteration of glassy structures under mechanical stress (high pressure) or under nuclear radiation. One specificity of our approach is the investigation of acoustic vibrations localized at the nanoscale, from well-defined nanostructures (quantum dots, metallic nanoparticles...) to nano-heterogeneous disorder in glasses.
