On December 18th, 2020, Jean-Baptiste Rodriguez successfully defended his “habilitation” thesis entitled “Epitaxy and investigations of antimonide-based materials and devices”. He summarized 18 years of a rich career and proposed enticing perspectives to his work. The committee was impressed by his achievements and accumulated knowledge, as well by his vision for the future of the antimonides.
On December 3rd, 2020, Marta Rio CALVO successfully defended her PhD thesis entitled: Epitaxy of GaSb on on-axis (001)Si for integrated optoelectronics. In her work Marta developed a strategy to promote self-annihilation of anti-phase boundaries – device killer defects – during the molecular-beam epitaxy of GaSb on on-axis Si substrates. Thanks to this work, high performance laser diodes could be grown on Si substrates, paving the way to integrated optoelectronics. On December 8th, 2020, Daniel A. Diaz-Thomas successfully defended
Diodes lasers moyen IR intégrées par épitaxie sur des substrats Si compatibles avec l’industrie de la microélectronique.
La plupart des capteurs optiques bio-chimiques reposent sur l’interaction entre un faisceau de lumière infrarouge (IR) et l’espèce chimique à détecter. Intégrer les lasers IR avec les technologies de la microélectronique permettrait de baisser drastiquement les coûts de fabrication et d’aller vers des capteurs « intelligents ». Grâce à l’EquipEX EXTRA, des chercheurs de l’IES viennent de faire la première démonstration d’une telle intégration.

A total of 14 Double-Degree PhD Positions are available within the OPTAPHI Marie Skłodowska-Curie Network. This is an exciting opportunity to be an MSC Fellow (Early Stage Researcher) with accompanying generous salary and benefits, study in 2 European countries (Ireland/Italy/Austria/France), and be awarded a double Ph.D. degree from 2 institutions (Double Doctorate/co-tutelle). Fellowships are for a maximum of 36 months; each ESR will be recruited for the full 36 months by one partner institute, and will spend
Mid-Infrared Optoelectronics: Materials, Devices, Applications, edited by Eric Tournié and Laurent Cerutti has just been published by Elsevier-Woodhead Publishing series. In 16 chapters written by leading authors in the field, the book addresses the new materials, devices and applications that have emerged over the last decade, along with exciting areas of research. Sections cover fundamentals, light sources, photodetectors, new approaches, and the application of mid-IR devices, with sections discussing LEDs, laser diodes, and quantum cascade lasers,
Four new projects Two projects involving scientists from the nanoMIR group have been granted by the French National Research Agency (ANR) within the 2019 call (https://anr.fr/fr/detail/call/appel-a-projets-generique-3/). These projects deal with mode-locked interband-cascade lasers and the integration of quantum-cascade lasers on a SiGe platform. A project on the monolithic integration of nanostructured spectral filters on IR photodetectors has been granted by the ASTRID 2019 program (https://anr.fr/fr/detail/call/accompagnement-specifique-des-travaux-de-recherches-et-dinnovation-defense-astrid-8/). nanoMIR is a partner of the Innovative Training Network (ITN) project OPTAPHI (Optical Sensing
Zeineb Loghmari receives a Best Poster Award at ITQW 2019. The 2019 Infrared Terahertz Quantum Workshop (ITQW) is a workshop-style conference that aims to bring together academic, government, and industry scientists in an intimate venue to encourage close interaction and collaboration. The theme of the conference is broadly defined as the exploration of novel physical phenomena in quantum- and electromagnetically-engineered photonic materials in the infrared and terahertz frequency range and the exploitation of these phenomena to create novel optoelectronic devices and
On October 31th, 2019, Zeineb LOGHMARI successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled: InAs / AlSb Quantum Cascade Lasers Beyond 10 μm: Single Frequency Transmission and THz Generation by Frequency Difference. On October 4th, 2019, Rodolphe ALCHAAR successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled: Fabrication and characterization of InAs / GaSb superlattice photodetectors for the long-wave infrared. Rodolphe’s work was supported by the European Space Agency (ESA). On July 8th, 2019, Olivier Delorme successfully defended his PhD thesis entitled: Investigation of the
The three of the leaves are changing colors : red, yellow and brown! Our researches at nanomir keep travelling around the world to participate in differnt conferences: 44th Europena Conference on Optical Communication. Nanophotonics and Micro/Nano Optics International Conference 2018 - Rome-Italy 14th International Conference on Mid-IR Optoelectronics: Materials and Devices MIOMD-XIV - Flagstaff, Arizona - US
Three projects coordinated by scientists from the nanoMIR group have been granted by the French National Research Agency (ANR) within the 2018 call. These project deal with high operating temperature superlattice photodetector for the full mid infrared, silicon micro-resonators for gas sensing and vertical-cavity THz lasers. They will start early 2019.
