Eric Lantz was born in 1957. From 1979 to 1985, he worked in industry in the field of solar energy and heat pumps. He joined the Optics Laboratory of Besançon (now included in the FEMTO.ST institute) in 1986 and received in 1989 the Ph. D. degree from the Université de Franche Comté, where he is currently professor.
His Ph. D. was devoted to super-resolution in microscopy by inverse problem methods. Since 1989, he has worked in the non linear optics group of the laboratory, where he initiated studies about travelling-wave parametric image amplification in crystals. He proposed using its time-gating properties to perform imaging in diffusing media. Since 2000, he has been involved in quantum optics, by studying spatial fluctuations in parametric images, first in the frame of the European contract "Quantum imaging (2001-2004)" (the paper in PRL about noiseless amplification has been selected for a "News and Views" in Nature: C. Fabre, Nature 436, 472), then with the support of the ANR contract "Information and quantum communication".
His current research interests include also parametric amplification in fibres, spatial solitons, optimal photon counting strategies with EMCCD cameras and inverse problem in the time-frequency domain. He has recently engaged in a new research activity about imaging in diffusing media by phase conjugation, with the support of the ANR (contract ICLM ).
He authored or co-authored 80 papers in international journals, 2 chapters of book, and 70 communications in international meetings with proceedings (including 6 invited talks) and is presently associate Editor of Optics Express.
