Materials for optronics and nanotechnology


Duration : 21 hours

ECTS Credits :

Semester : S9

Person(s) in charge:

Bertrand LENOIR, Professor, 


Optics and optronics properties of materials


Electric and thermal properties of materials, crystallography


 Introduce the different classes of materials which are involved major developments in the field of modern optics and optronics and to understand the basic principles of the associated devices.

Program and Contents:

  • Non linear optics (NLO): formalism, applications to optics of the second order, materials for NLO and applications (frequency doublers, parametric oscillators, electro-optics, etc.).
  • Optics and low dimensional systems,
  •  Organic electronics: materials, devices (OLED, transistors, solar cells, etc.) and applications,
  •  Light in mineral solids: pigments and solar interactions, inorganic pigments (case of TiO2 and CeO2), light with transition and rare earth elements, thermochromism and piezochromism,
  •  Non conventional glass for high speed optical telecommunication. Doped and undoped chalcogenide glass for laser fibers, optical amplifiers, infrared cameras, etc.
  • Lasers in material science: different classes of lasers, applications, etc.

Lectures will be given by guest speakers. A visit to an industrial site is planned and students will be involved in practical work.
