Institut TELECOM website
The Institut TELECOM, trademark under which is designated the Groupe des Ecoles des Télécommunications hereinafter associates a number of graduate teaching and research institutes dedicated to the field of Télécommunications all over France. The Ecole Nationale Supérieure des télécommunications (also know as TELECOM ParisTech), its oldest institution (over a 100 years old), regroups 150 academics and is now a member of Paristech, which is an association of the most prestigious scientific higher education « institutes » in France. The Optical Telecommunication group of the TELECOM ParisTech concentrates its research activities on the physical layer of optical communication systems and networks and related applications. Activities range from the characterisation of components up to the system validation of optical devices and functions. This is supported by access to experimental telecom equipments and to knowledge and know-how in the field of modelling, simulation and experimental characterisation. Our main topics are optical signal processing including an investigation of the application of optical function to optical packet-switched architectures, optical CDMA, quantum communication, transmission impairments analysis, new modulation formats and new optical components characterisation. Our group has been involved in the projects IST-OPTIMIST, IST-BREAD and NoE-ePhonon/One+.
Personnel involved in EURO-FOS
Dr Cédric Ware was born on January 24, 1977 in Paris. He received the M. Sc. degree in physics and B. Sc. in computer science from the École Normale Supérieure, Paris, and the Université Paris 6 & 7, in 1996; and the engineering degree from the École Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, Paris, which he then joined in 1998 as an assistant professor in the communications and electronics department, where he completed his Ph. D. degree on opto-electronic clock recovery in 2003. His current research activities focus on optical signal processing for use in optical communications networks, notably clock recovery, packet label recognition and optical CDMA. He is a national delegate for the European action COST 288 on nanoscale and ultrafast photonics, and vice-chairman of its working group on photonics devices. He also participates in COST 291 on digital optical networks, and the European Network of Excellence e-Photon/ONe+. Dr. Ware is a member of the Optical Society of America.
Prof. Didier Erasme was born in Paris (France) in 1960. In 1983, he received a "diplôme d'Ingénieur" in physical engineering from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Ingénieurs Electriciens de Grenoble (INPG). In 1987, he completed a Ph.D. on LiNbO3 high-frequency integrated-optic modulators in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Dept of University College London (UCL) (UK). After a two year post-doctoral work on electrooptic sampling of GaAs integrated Circuit in UCL, he joined the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications (TELECOM ParisTech) in 1990 as an assistant professor in optoelectronic. In 1995, he obtained a "Habilitation à diriger des recherches". He spent a 6-months sabbatical in Professor M. Smit’s group in Delft University (Netherlands). He is a full Professor since 1998. His current research interests are in the area of new optical functions for telecommunication optical systems and networks. Particularly, he has developed a strong interest in semiconductor laser amplifiers and other non-linear optical devices for applications in all-optical signal processing. He is author and co-author of more than 60 publications and communications in international journals and conferences. He is a member of the European programme BREAD dedicated to the road-mapping of European Broadband-for-all activities in Europe and participates to the European Network of Excellence ePhoton/ONe.
Dr Yves Jaouën was born in September 1958 in Quimper. He received his DEA of University of Paris VI in 1989 and his PhD from ENST in 1993 respectively. He has joined ENST (now Institut TELECOM, TELECOM Paristech) in the Communications and Electronic department in 1982 where he is now associate professor. He is lecturing in the domain of electromagnetic fields, optics and optical communications systems. His present researches include high bit rate optical communication systems and networks, new characterization techniques for advanced photonic devices, high power fiber lasers, fiber optics and remote sensing. He is author or co-author of more 100 papers in journals and communications.
