Dr. Jean-Baptiste RENARD, 53 years old, is a senior scientist at the LPC2E-CNRS laboratory, Orléans (France). He works on the optical properties of solid aerosols and dust in the Earth atmosphere and in the solar system. He has developed several instruments dedicated to the laboratory studies and to the in-situ detection in atmosphere of such particles. In particular, he conducts measurements with the imaging polarimeter PROGRA2 instruments during parabolic flights since 1993, to retrieve the scattering function of dust at different wavelengths (<>). He has participated to 60 parabolic flight campaigns with CNES and ESA and has done more than 4200 parabolas.
