Photonic team 2014

Photonics team gathers 8 permanent reasearchers, together with their doc and post-docs. The reasearch actvity focus on two main scientific directions :

  • On chip integration of photonics
  • System level integration of optics

The general objective is the demonstration of novel functionnalities and novel concepts for optical systems with a strong emphasis on integrated photonic systems. The activity ranges from key micro-nano technological buiding blocks development to feasability demonstration of high performance - heterogeneously integrated - photonic  systems on III-V and Si platforms.

The reasearch work is organized along three main axes that are artificial materials, advanced photonic components and novel optical systems.
