This is the home page for Jean-Paul Crocombette.
I am a Research Director at French CEA in Saclay, in the Service de Recherches de Métallurgie Physique (SRMP, Physical Mettalurgy Lab.) of the Direction de l'Energie Nucléaire (Nuclear Energy Division). Since 2016 I am also associate editor of Journal of Nuclear Materials.
I graduated from Ecole polytechnique. After a DEA (matser) in Solid State Physics (1992), I made a PhD (1995) in Service de Recherches sur les Surfaces et l'Irradiation de la Matière of CEA-Saclay. I have been working in SRMP since then. See my CV for details.
I work on point defects and irradiation damage in insulators and more specially in oxides and carbides. I use numerical simulations at the atomic scale : empirical potential molecular dynamics, ab initio electronic structure.
For a detailed presentation of my works see the list of my publications. (external link on researcherID).
