Aymeric Le Gratiet obtained his degree in Physics at University of Rennes, France, in 2013. In 2016, he received his Ph.D. in Physics from the University of Western Brittany (U.B.O) with a thesis titled “Development of a spectral encoding Mueller polarimeter using a swept-source laser. Application to the laser scanning microscopy”.
His current research interests is to develop label-free microscopy methods (without dyes) based on polarization control of the light (Mueller/Stokes polarimetry) to study the anisotropic effects on biological materials, such as biological fibers (collagen and muscles) and biopolymers (chromatin DNA and amiloid). The project is divided in several goals to propose new imaging contrasts for super-resolution microscopy at the single molecular level without dyes (label free method) and to study the polarimetric effects of biological systems in function on specific parameters (angular, spectral and XY mapping).
