Retour aux nouvelles

Led by Professors Martin Bernier of Université Laval and Maksim Skorobogatiy of Polytechnique Montréal, the Beyond IR project is receiving $5 million from the Canada Foundation for Innovation and the Quebec government.

Profs. Bernier & Skorobogatiy are determined, through the Beyond the frontiers of infrared photonics project, to bring together teams of researchers with complementary skills and at different stages of their careers, at world-class research infrastructures to be shared between Université Laval, Polytechnique Montréal and École de technologie supérieure (ETS).

The project will develop compact, robust lasers, new optical fibers and short-range communication networks operating in the mid-infrared and terahertz spectral bands.
