As a US citizen, you do not need a specific visa to visit France for a short time, including a flight layover. You might be able to stay at the airport for 11 hours, depending on when and where you arrive. From https://www.parisaeroport.fr/en/passengers/services/claims-litigation/faq (June 2022):

Closing times at Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport terminals:

  • Terminal 1: 12:00 am to 04:00 am

  • Terminal 2B: Closed for renovation.
