The annual Paul Phelps Award is given to young researchers for the excellence of their work and represents international recognition in the field of the effects of radiation.

Alexandre Le Roch is a 2015 graduate of the INSA Rennes (National Institute of Applied Sciences of Rennes) engineering school. He is currently preparing a doctorate in microelectronics at the Department of Electronics, Optronics and Signal Processing (DEOS) at ISAE-SUPAERO. He is studying the effects of space and nuclear radiation on CMOS image sensors in view of improving space instruments and plasma diagnostics for nuclear fusion. More specifically, he is performing research on the silicon defects induced by radiation responsible for an increase in dark current and its discrete fluctuations.

His research is being carried out under the direction of two doctoral advisors, Vincent Goiffon of ISAE-SUPAERO and Cédric Virmontois of the CNES (National Centre for Space Studies). This thesis is being prepared in collaboration with the CNES and the CEA (French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission).
