Complex photonic systems and materials

Short presentation:

The "Complex Photonic Materials and Systems" group specializes in the analysis of the fundamental physical properties of new optical components and architectures developed to meet the challenges of modern photonics such as advanced imaging, ultra-fast optics, neuromorphic photonics, integrated optics and biophotonics.
To meet these challenges, our research activities propose to develop new optical sources by integrating passive or active materials into complex architectures to manipulate and modulate the fundamental properties of light such as frequency, coherence, spatio-temporal dynamics and transport in complex optical networks.
The projects developed in our group are based on various experimental platforms such as liquid crystal devices for the manipulation of ultra-short laser pulses, nonlinear optics integrated on Lithium Niobate, and semiconductor materials and lasers emitting in the visible and near infrared.
