Optical communication technology has revolutionized our lives. It provides the physical backbone for global networking and is widely used in Internet data centres and cloud computing. Today integrated photonics is quickly penetrating into microprocessors and wearable electronics.
At Université Laval, we explore innovation in both theory and experiment to drastically push the boundaries of next-generation optical communications. Our research covers many of the most exciting topics in this rapidly evolving field, including but not limited to:
- Ultra-high-capacity coherent optical transmissions
- Smart radio-over-fiber systems
- Silicon photonics
- Space division multiplexing
- Multidimensional lasers and amplifiers
- Integrated photonic systems
We are part of a world-class research cluster in optics and photonics. Join us!
