Francois Roddier

François Roddier is an astrophysicist; he is renown for finding a solution to compensate the effects of atmospheric turbulences during star observation. After creating the astrophysics department at Nice University, he left for the United States, to work for the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (Tuscon Arizona) and in the Institute for Astrophysics of Hawaii University. At this point, he participated in the development of adaptive optical systems that now equip major observation units such as the France-Canada- Hawaii observatory (Pue’o), the European Southern Observatory or the Japanese telescope: Subaru. As an ever-curious scholar, he carries a great interest in the thermodynamic aspects of evolution.
