NNN-TELECOM

Nonlinear Nanophotonics and Nanofabrication at TELECOM frequencies

 Bringing RPL-science to the international level 

The main goal of the project “Nonlinear Nanophotonics and Nanofabrication at TELECOM frequencies (NNN-TELECOM)” is to boost and extend the collaborative activities in research and education between RPL research laboratories IMMM UMR CNRS 6283 (Le Mans), LAUM UMR CNRS 6613 (Le Mans) and LPHIA (Angers) with the leading international laboratories in nanophotonics, nanofabrication and ultrafast spectroscopy in condensed matter in Germany and the United States.  

 From the scientific perspective we are going to develop an international platform for the nonlinear nanophotonics and nanofabrication using ultrashort laser pulses at the infrared (from the visible to THz) spectral range serving the need of ultrafast telecommunication and industrial laser processing.  

Milestones: collaboration – education – external funding – recrouting

Quantitative milestones of NNN-TELECOM are identified as follows:

 Obtaining funding via the French-German ANR-DFG international cooperation proposals in basic science

  • Recruting post-doctoral researchers at the IMMM CNRS 6283 to work on the joint scientific projects and their support at the national competition for a permanent research position at the CNRS
  • Organization of an international workshop in Le Mans
  • Several publications in refereed journals with new co-authors (those who have never published together before) from the partner laboratories
  • Short-term academic exchange of PhD/Master students and researchers from the IMMM UMR CNRS 6283 in the partner laboratories
