Research activities:

The activity of the PEQ group aims at the investigation, the understanding and the exploitation of optical phenomena that occur when the electromagnetic field is confined in a semiconductor in dimensions of the order of the optical wavelength. This activity relies on the quantum mechanical or nonlinear effects that take place under strong confinement to design, realize, and study photonic devices with specific characteristics, unattainable by other means.

The four actions of the PEQ group correspond to the investigation of the behavior of light in a semiconductor in four different types of conditions:
