Research area and interests

Here is a short list of my main research topics over the last five years. Items 1-3 are directly linked to current collaborative research projects. Items 4-6 correspond to an academic expertise and/or publications :

· indoor optical wireless transmission (Gbit/s)

· optical switching (circuit, packet and burst) for fiber networks

· energy-efficiency in wireless networks (RF and optical)

· free-space optical beam-steering

· liquid crystal spatial light modulators

· beam shaping diffractive optical elements

Broadly speaking, five research departments of my institute (Télécom Bretagne) can be potentially involved in the OPTICWISE consortium activities. The description of their activities, publications and R&D capabilities can be found using the following links :

· Optics :

· Signal processing :

· Microwaves :

· Electronics :

· Networks :

Research Facilities


On the specific topic of optical transmission (wired and wireless), two hardware platforms directly related to the optics department can be associated to the OPTICWISE consortium activities :

· Wireless access platform :

· Optical transmission platform :


· VPI transmission Maker (7 floating licenses) :

· ADS simulation software (20 floating licenses):
