Dominique Vuillaume was born in 1956. He received the Electronics Engineer degree from the Institut Supérieur d'Electronique du Nord, Lille, France, 1981 and the PhD degree and Habilitation diploma in solid-state physics, from the University of Lille, France in 1984 and 1992, respectively. He is research director at CNRS (centre national de la recherche scientifique) and he works at the Institute for Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnology (IEMN), University of Lille. He created and he is head of the « Molecular Nanostructures & Devices » research group at IEMN. His research interests (1982-1992) covered physics and characterization of point defects in semiconductors and MIS devices, physics and reliability of thin insulating films, hot-carrier effects in MOSFET's. Since 1992, he has been engaged in the field of Molecular Electronics. His current research concerns: - design and characterization of molecular and nanoscale electronic devices, - elucidation of fundamental electronic properties of these molecular and nanoscale devices, - study of functional molecular devices and integrated molecular systems, - exploration of new computing paradigms using molecules and nanostructures. He is the author or co-author of 160 scientific (peer-reviewed) papers in these fields. He was scientific advisor for industrial companies (Bull R&D center) and he is currently scientific advisor for the CEA "Chimtronique" research program.
