The IEEE French Chapter

Welcome to the French Chapter of the IEEE Photonics Society
(Formerly IEEE Lasers and Electro-Optics Society)

  The goal of the French Chapter of the IEEE Photonics Society is to advance the interests of its members and the     photonics community by providing opportunities for information exchange, continuing education on timely topics,     sponsoring special events, and supporting student activities. The Chapter implements outreach activities aimed     at communicating the important role of photonics in modern communication and medicine to the general public.

    Following a long tradition, we are very pleased to inform you that the next European Semiconductor Laser Workshop will be held in Paris, on September 18th & 19th 2014, just before the 40th European Conference and Exhibition on Optical Communication (ECOC) (21-25 Sept. 2014 in Cannes. The workshop provides the opportunity for informal discussions about recent advances and achievements in the field of semiconductor laser diodes, related devices and their applications. The workshop is arranged in the form of invited talks, contributed presentations, both oral and poster. We warmly welcome you to attend this workshop and promote fruitful discussions.
    The topics of the workshop include but are not limited to:
    - Novel material systems, structures, and technologies
    - Photonic crystal semiconductor lasers, nanoscale semiconductor lasers
    - Lasers on silicon
    - Laser physics and modelling
    - High power lasers
    - Short pulse lasers and mode-locked lasers
    - Surface emitting lasers
    - Long and short wavelength lasers, e.g. quantum cascade lasers, violet, blue, green, red lasers, frequency doubled lasers
    - Lasers for telecommunication
    - Laser integrated devices
    - Semiconductor optical amplifiers
    - All-optical processing using semiconductor lasers and amplifiers

    To submit a contribution, send an email to and provide us with a title and the list of authors before 15th of July.
    Send your abstract before the 31st of August. Use the attached template (maximum 2 pages).

    The workshop will start at 10 am on 18th. A conference dinner will be organized after the closure of the day (7 pm).

  • August 27-29, 2014 Pdf
    Group IV Photonics Conference 2014
    Green Platform Research Laboratories
    at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris, Paris France

    The topics of the 2014 GFP Conference will span from fundamental research in novel devices and materials to the developments of photonic circuits using monolithic or hybrid integration technologies. It will also cover applications that range from optical interconnects and communications to biomedical sensing devices, from novel concepts in solar cells to optical micro electro-mechanical systems.For more information, please visit the Conference Web site

    Prof. Cheng-Wei QIU, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, National University of Singapore (NUS), Singapore
    Emerging developments in sculpting electromagnetic waves
    Télécom ParisTech , École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications,
    46 rue Barrault 75013 Paris France
    Amphithéatre Emeraude

    The mainstream of electromagnetics, high-/low-frequency engineering, and material science research have been individually well studied, with the fundamental theorems established for many decades. In this talk, I will introduce some emerging developments in transformation electromagnetic and their interesting applications, empowered by the interdisciplinary and correlated nature across traditional electromagnetics, photonics, memtamaterials, and plasmonics. In particular, the luxury degree of freedom in wave-matter-structure interaction, if properly controlled and designed, enables unprecedented phenomena, functionalities, and devices, including super-imaging, scattering illusion, cloaking, metamaterials/metasurface, plasmonic color print, light sculpting, high-data-rate communication, etc. Proof-of-concept experiments in different scales of electromagnetic wavelength will be introduced. This is only a partial clue of how the interplay of various fields could give new twists in the classical domain of electromagnetics, which can be employed as valuable supplements to the existing state-of-the-arts .
