Optoelectronics, Photonics and Optical Telecommunications team


The OPTO team is involved in both fundamental and applied research for the development and study of new photonics technologies and their applications. It investigates new concepts of complex or agile system. 

The two pillars of the team’s research strategy are:

  1. fundamental research of new physical phenomena in order to leverage the obtained insight for achieving proficiency in experimenting with them
  2. development of cutting edge applications enabled by our deep understanding of the involved systems.

The team's activities have a strong multidisciplinary nature, involving aspects of photonics, optoelectronics, mathematics, quantum optics, nonlinear dynamics, ultrafast optics, and fundamental aspects of light-matter interaction.

Goals and Research Areas

Current research is being developed in three main focus areas:

Ultrafast photonics

Nonlinear, complex systems and artificial intelligence

Quantum technology in Photonics

Implementing our work

The team's activities have important, fundamental underpinnings, with a significant risk factor, but their evolution is nevertheless guided by orientations with clear objectives for application, sometimes through close interaction with industrial partners.
