- LAPHIA Post-Doc Position @ LOMA: Design, realization and characterization of gigahertz optical parametric oscillators.
Open postdoctoral position : LOMA laboratory, University of Bordeaux Design, realization and characterization of gigahertz optical parametric oscillators. expected start date: June 2019 Systems providing femtosecond of picosecond pulses at gigahertz repetition rate have been identified as a key technology for telecom in the 1.5 µm spectral range. Thus several techniques have been proposed to produce such laser sources such as mode-locked Er, Yb: glass lasers, rational harmonic mode...[ read more ]

Laser & Photonics in Aquitaine
Photonics, defined broadly as "the science of the photon", is present in multiple disciplines with a rapidly growing importance in society. It uses photons to understand, probe and modify matter, while designed materials allow the control of light propagation and generation. This discipline is identified in the European R&D roadmaps as one of the most prominent cutting-edge fields in science and technology for the 21st century.
Financed by the Excellence Initiative of the University of Bordeaux, LAPHIA aims to create a consortium around sciences of light – optics, photonics, lasers. The Bordeaux pole in optics is already recognized as leading in several fields: high energy lasers, hot plasmas, laser-matter interaction physics, material science. The Aquitaine Region has brought together buisnesses and research scientists to creat France's biggest regional laser-optics industry.
In this favorable context, LAPHIA aims to federate the whole relevant academic community around coherent and innovative projects in lasers and photonics, while strengthening the links with the CEA. The unique Centre of excellence structure will promote Bordeaux among the most visible centres in Lasers and Photonics at European and international levels, attracting students, researchers and private companies.
