Our Optics Department is organized into 4 teams:
› Nonlinear Optics (Optique Non Linéaire - ONL)
New concepts in guided nonlinear photonics and optoacoustics in optic fibers, in nonlinear dynamics of self-guided waves and photo-induced waves, and in nonlinear quantic imaging.
› Optoelectronics (Optoélectronique, Photonique et Télécommunications Optiques - OPTO)
New concepts in complex systems based on nonlinear optical and delay-time optoelectronic dynamics, particularly neuromorphic computing, quantum information systems architectures, control of laser-material interaction processes, and extreme waves in ultrafast photonics.
› Photonics for Medical Instrumentation (PIM)
Development of sensors, instrumentation and translational research for the diagnosis and analysis in life sciences, medicine and health.
› Nano-Optics (NO)
Design and production of individual nanoantennas on optic fiber and from diaelectric or hybrid metallic metamaterials, mainly active photonic crystals on lithium niobate, the study of their nano-optic properties and development of original nanophotonic components.
