Optics Research teams

Nano-Optics (NO)

The activities of the NO team are part of the general study and control of the interaction between light and matter at scales smaller than the length. The team presents a structured activity around the key areas of nano-optics:

  • Photonic crystals controllable in LiNbO3
  • Nano-optical antennas
  • Metal metamaterials with exalted transmission
  • Hybrid photonic / plasmonic structures

Nonlinear Optics  (ONL)

The ONL team is interested in controlling the spatio-temporal and quantum properties of LASER light by the play of nonlinear interactions in different materials such as telecommunications or microstructured optical fibers, photorefractive materials (LiNbO3), Kerr media , as well as quadratic crystals. We conduct research according to the following themes:

  • Optical Fibers and Telecommunications
  • Quantum optics, amplification / image processing
  • Fiber laser
  • Generation of Supercontinuum
  • Self-guided laser beams, solitons, slow light

Optoelectronics (OPTO)

The Optoelectronics Group is involved in fundamental and applied research on the development and study of new photonic technologies and their applications in systems and components used for telecommunications
Our research activities are divided into three major themes:

  • Physical cryptography by chaos and quantum cryptography
  • Ultrafast optics
  • Photonic components
