4th International Conference on Photonics
Université de Rennes, France
Bruno Bêche is Professor of Physics at the University of Rennes 1 (IPR CNRS 6251). His teaching activity took place in several universities as well as in engineering schools in France, holding lectures in fundamental physics, physics of materials, and also photonics at all student levels of education. His research career started on the development of optical components based on lithium niobate as non-linear optical devices and then he worked in the development of III-V semiconductors as components for the wavelength division, multiplexing and lasers (FEMTO-ST and LAAS CNRS, France and NTT Corporation, Japan). At the University of Rennes 1, he started a new field of research, working since a few years in the development of various micro-resonators based on hybrid technologies which combine the use of polymers and plasma treatments, soft matter with fluidic and biology concepts. His research work covers both the theoretical description of the physical aspects of these photonic devices and also the technologies, the characterization and their applications as integrated biosensors in metrology. He is Honorary Member of the 'Institut Universitaire de France' - IUF Paris.
