Guided wave photonics for embedded systems
The continuous growth of complexity of the information systems makes inevitable the technological development plans for which various materials and devices are integrated in a compact way. It allows to generate and to interconnect a wide variety of functionalities while reducing the cost of the manufacturing process.
INL develops standard semiconductor materials (III-V, silicon) and original (nano)materials (functional oxides, III-V nanowires, hybrid III-V/oxide nanowires, porous silicon), for applications in the domains of electronics, photonics and energy harvesting.
The research area relies on two research groups: “Heteroepitaxy and Nanostructures“, “Spectroscopy and Nanomaterials“.
Photonics and Photovoltaics
This research field axis mainly brings together researchers from Light Engineering and Conversion team (i-Lum).
Biotechnology and Healthcare
Micro/nanotechnologies are implemented to develop new solutions to the challenges that exist in the areas of biology, healthcare and the environment.
