Laurent LARGER named Fellow 2021 of OSA

Full professor of Physics/Optics at the University of Franche-Comté and researcher at FEMTO-ST institute, Laurent Larger is rewarded for his pioneering work on nonlinear dynamics in optoelectronics and on the development of new architectures for photonic artificial intelligence.

Founded in 1916, the Optical Society (OSA) has the mission to promote and disseminate knowledge in optics and photonics at the international level. The OSA brings together renowned scientists, engineers and business leaders from around the world.

Since 1959, nearly 2,500 scientists have joined the ranks of OSA Fellows, who are appointed on a very selective basis, with no more than 0.5% of the OSA community being awarded Fellowship status each year for their major contribution to the advancement of optics and photonics. The Université Bourgogne-Franche-Comté now has three OSA Fellows: John Dudley in 2007, Guy Millot in 2013, and Laurent Larger in 2021.

Honorary member of the IUF (Junior member in 2007), Laurent Larger is Director of the FEMTO-ST Institute and Professor of Physics/Optics at the University of Franche-Comté, a member institution of the Federal University Bourgogne-Franche-Comté. His research work focuses on the experimental study in photonics of complexity in nonlinear dynamic delay systems (chaos theory, bifurcations, bistability, chimeric states), and on the use of this complexity for applications in information processing (optical chaos cryptography, optoelectronic microwave sources for Radars, new photonic calculators inspired by principles of brain functioning).
