Speaker Biography

Doctor Bertrand FILLON is currently the Senior Program Manager of CEA/LITEN for new energy technologies (fuel cells, batteries, photovoltaic cells,...) , organic electronic and nanomaterials. He defines, organizes and follows the CEA/LITEN project portfolio. He is leader of the polymer platform involving the different CEA research teams and foreign Swiss laboratories CSEM. During 1990-2003 he worked with Pechiney Packaging. For the Pechiney Group, he was the coordinator of the Global Packaging R&D activities between the four business units (flexible packaging, bottles, tubes, high tech. cosmetics). He was the leader of the Pechiney polymer expert group. Dr Fillon was the Pechiney representative in IRI (Industrial Research Institut).
Prior to joining Pechiney, Dr Fillon worked in Orkem as a research engineer of polymer extrusion. He has a number of technical publications and also patents in the field of packaging and extrusion/printing processes.

Company Profile

CEA/LITEN is composed of 330 employees with 40 M€ budget. CEA/LITEN is developing all aspects of nanomaterials from manufacture and handling techniques through to safety considerations and applications. CEA/LITEN is developing all integration aspect through different generation of processes (PECVD, µ-replication, printing...).CEA/LITEN is especially focused on the study of nano-objects (nanotubes, nanowires, and super nets), nanopowders (advanced ceramics, nanotracers) and nanostructured surfaces. CEA/LITEN is designing and developing semiconductives and conductives polymers to be able to print circuitry, power generating devices. Our device experts have an understanding of the relationship between structure-property and device performance. CEA/LITEN is also heavily involved in portable applications of µ-power sources (fuel cells, batteries, solar cells,...) making full use of the potential advantages of nanotechnology.
