The Chair was renewed in 2011 for another seven year term by the Canada Research Chairs Secretariat.
The Laboratory: A new Photonics Laboratory was then put in place in 2005 with funding from the Canada Foundation for Innovation, the Ontario Innovation Trust, and significant contributions from several private sector partners. The Laboratory is staffed by an experienced full time technical officer, Ms. Albane LARONCHE.
- Research areas: Our area of expertise deals with novel devices and systems based on photonic waveguides made of glass, in fibre or planar configurations. More specifically, we have unique expertise and capabilities for the development of devices based on periodic structures, fabricated in our laboratories. Finally our main fields of application focus on optical sensing, as well as active devices in glass for lasers and modulators. Our work is mostly experimental, but based on sound theoretical considerations and advanced modelling tools.
