Photonics

The Photonics Department has extensive expertise in the field of light-matter interaction in propagative regime. This expertise covers ultrafast non-linear optics, employing various material media, ranging from optical fibers to gases and plasmas, guided optics, nanophotonics and plasmonics. Much emphasis is placed on experimental research, whether of a fundamental nature or geared towards technological and application developments. This experimental research is based on the EXQUIPEX+ SMARTLIGHT platforms for ultra-fast optical instrumentation and ARCEN for nanophotonics fabrication and characterization. The department also has the theoretical and numerical modeling skills appreciated. In total, the Photonics Department has around sixty teacher-researchers, researchers, engineers, technicians, doctoral and post-docs.

Within the experimental platforms, various types of materials and structures are developed. Waveguides such as: special microstructured fibers composed of glasses for the medium infrared; non-linear and transparent planar guides (titanium dioxide and silicon nitride); plasmonic tracks (gold) .An important activity of the department concerns the study and development of new sources of coherent or high-brightness light, compact and efficient: frequency combs, pulsed fiber optic lasers, frequency conversion, optical synthesis, “Quantum dots", portable “Q-switch" lasers.

Basic research covers many aspects: the control of molecular alignment or filamentation; understanding complex non-linear phenomena such as the formation of supercontinuum, rogue waves, ultra-fast laser cavity dynamics, wave condensation, further exploring the notions of optical soliton and dissipative soliton.

The application aims are stimulated by this fundamental research. These include the prospects for achieving optical functions for high-speed optical communications or optical data processing at the scale of the computer chip, spectroscopic applications for the field of health, the environment, and field research in geology and archeology.

SAFIR: Solitons, lAsers, Fibers, and InfraRed photonics

The SAFIR Team is based on a strong coupling between experimentalists and theoreticians of nonlinear optical dynamics. It aims at developing innovative advanced optical functionalities taking advantage of light properties in various nonlinear propagation environments.

During the past few years, the high level of recurrent interactions and collaborations among the above teams made it clear that the Ph. Dept. was the most relevant structure level to encompass the photonics research performed at ICB. Note that the Ph. Dept. has also developed fruitful interactions with the Dept. of Quantum Interactions and Control.

The Ph. Dept. is the key contributor to the “Photonic and advanced materials” research topic identified – among six – as a strategic field at the level of uB. At the Burgundy Region and National levels (CPER), the Ph. Dept. benefits from the support of the regional project « Photcom/ACTION » conducted within the framework of the LabeX ACTION headed at the university of Franche-Comté.

The presentation of the activities conducted at the Ph. Dept. can be grouped in the following topical areas:

  • Light-mediated control processes
  • Advanced nonlinear optical dynamics
  • Plasmonics: from fundamentals to applications
  • Solid-state laser sources for applications
