Florian Lecasse

University of Reims


Florian Lecasse obtained his master's degree in applied physics from the University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne in 2019. He is currently working on his thesis in the Groupe De Spectrométrie Moléculaire et Atmosphérique (GSMA), examining the consequences of carbon dioxide desorption on the headspace of a champagne glass using infrared laser spectroscopy. In particular, he is exploring the effects of glass rotation during Champagne tasting. Florian Lecasse's research has also opened up the GSMA to the field of still wines through the development of spectrometers for studying gaseous ethanol. During his thesis, Florian Lecasse promoted his work by publishing it in peer-reviewed journals and presenting it at international scientific conferences.
