Welcome to the Nonlinear Photonics Group



The Nonlinear Photonics team pursues dynamic and innovative research at INRS-EMT in Montreal, Canada. It has a world recognized record of achievements in such disciplines as Quantum Optics, Metrology, Nano- and Biophotonics, Terahertz (THz) science and, of course, Nonlinear Optics using bulk, fiber and integrated optical components and devices. It is an acknowledged group of excellence in many disciplines as can be seen in the individual project pages. The group pursues a very diverse range of topics at the leading edge of technology.

Principal Investigator: Prof. Roberto Morandotti

Roberto Morandotti joined the Institut National de la Recherche Scientifique (INRS) – Centre Énergie Matériaux et Télécommunications in 2003, as an Associate Professor, becoming full Professor in 2008. He has a broad experience in Nonlinear Optics, where he has established a remarkable track record during the last few years. In particular, his expertise ranges from the fabrication of Micro and Nano-Photonic structures to the use of various characterization techniques in optics.

Passively mode-locked laser with an ultra-narrow spectral width
Passively mode-locked laser with an ultra-narrow spectral width
Prof. Morandotti’s group demonstrates a technique for generating a stable coherent train of ultra-short laser pulses. Most mode-locking techniques introduced in the past focused mainly on increasing the spectral bandwidth to achieve ultrashort, sub-picosecond-long coherent light pulses. By contrast, less importance seemed to be given ...
