Hervé Maillotte


Nonlinear optics

Group : ONL

Head of Optics Department

Hervé Maillotte was born in Besançon, France, in 1962. He received the Ph.D. degree in engineering science from the Université de Franche-Comté, Besançon, France, in 1990. After about two years with a laser company and a spacecraft firm, he joined the Laboratoire d’Optique P.M. Duffieux, in 1991, as a CNRS Researcher, where he launched a research project on parametric amplification in optical fibres. He has also been involved with the development of third-order nonlinear organic materials and Z-scan measurements. He is curently involved with investigations on spatial soliton in Kerr and photorefractive media, four-wave mixing and stimulated scattering in conventional and microstructured fibers, supercontinuum generation, opto-acoustics in microstructured fibers. Since 2005, he is the head of the Department of optics P.M. Duffieux at FEMTO-ST Institute.
