Presentation: What we can learn about melting of semicrystalline polymers from in-situ combination of ultrafast chip calorimetry and synchrotron X-ray scattering
Dr. Dimitri Ivanov is a Director of Research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS). He works at the Institut de Sciences des Matériaux de Mulhouse (IS2M, CNRS UMR 7361). His research revolves around the physics of semicrystalline and liquid-crystalline polymers, and he is also involved in instrumental development such as in-situ combination of ultra-fast nanocalorimetry and synchrotron X-ray scattering, to study fast structure formation processes in organic and hybrid materials. He had held permanent positions in Russia and Belgium before joining the CNRS in France. He has extensive international collaborations, including research groups from leading universities in Germany, USA and Russia where he was awarded a MegaGrant project from the Russian Ministry of Science and Education aimed at creating a new experimental laboratory at Moscow State University.
