Prof. Didier STUERGA (1962), PhD (Physical Chemistry, UB, 1989); Maître de Conférences (UB, 1990); Habilitation à Diriger des Recherches (UB, 1994); Professeur des Universités (UB, 1997); création and management of GERM (2002); cofounder and shareholder of start’up Naxagoras Technology SAS with Dr. C. Lohr, PhD student (2007); inventor of a process patent for producing nanomaterials by microwave heating filled by the University of Burgundy (FR07-05515, 2007) and extended to Europ, la China and India (WO/2009/050344, 2011).

D. Stuerga develops and design high performance microwave applicators and microwave reactors. These reactors are tools for the development of microwave processes able to produce nanomaterials. These nanomaterials are used as sensitive materials for sensors and for their own functionality. D. Stuerga is member of international scientific societies as IEEE (USA) or The Electromagnetics Academy at MIT (USA). He is listed since 2003 in Who's Who in Electromagnetics of MIT.


Ongoing projects

NanoVolt : Among nanomaterials, semiconductor oxides are central because of their ability to produce electric charges under suitable irradiation conditions. This step is crucial for enchainemen stages of a possible photocatalytic activity. The implementation of photocatalytic tests is heavy and expensive. The objective of this project is to design a protocol for selecting candidates oxides based on their photoelectric activity without implementation of catalytic tests.

HyperColl : The effects of electric and magnetic components of an electromagnetic wave (static and microwave) on colloidal dispersions and precipitation reactions is a fundamental aim which is in development. The approach combines theoretical approach and experimental protocols.

Past projects

One of the major technological advances of the research activity is the design of microwave reactor Autoclave (Réacteur Autoclave MicroOnde or système RAMO) that enables production of nanomaterials in about ten seconds. This facility is used routinely in the laboratory for nearly ten years ( Des objets de sciences, des instruments et des hommes N°6 : Le RAM0). Another major breakthrough in the research activity is the development of the family processes called Microwave Induced Thermohydrolysis Flash (Flash MIT). The third generation has been patented and extended to Europe, China and India with an exclusive license transferred to the company Naxagoras Technology. These methods were tested under kilogram scale and/or ten liters with a pilot plant for preparation of nanomaterials in suspension.
