Philippe Lalanne is Directeur de Recherche at CNRS and is an international expert in nanoscale electrodynamics. He was first involved in Optical Information Processing in the group of Pierre Chavel at l'Institut d’Optique. In 1995, he spent a sabbatical year in the group of G.M. Morris, at the Institute of Optics in Rochester.
With his colleagues, he has launched new and powerful tools in computational electrodynamics [JOSAA 13 (1996) & JOSAA 18 (2001)], new type of diffractive optical elements with unprecedented efficiencies [J. Opt. A: Pure Appl. Opt. 4, S119 (2002)], has provided a deep insight into the physical mechanisms used in light confinement in ultrasmall photonic-crystal cavities [Nature 429 (2004)], has evidenced the importance of quasi-cylindrical waves in the optical properties of subwavelength metallic surface [Nature Phys. 2 (2006) & PRL 98 (2007)], to further elaborate a microscopic theory of the extraordinary optical transmission explaining the role of plasmons in this phenomenon [Nature 452 (2008) and Nature 492 (2012)].
He has co-authored about 140 publications in peer-reviewed journals and filled 7 patents. He is a recipient of the Bronze medal of CNRS, the prix Fabry de Gramont of the Société Française d’Optique; he is a fellow of the IOP, OSA and SPIE and was Carl Zeiss visiting Professor at Jena in 2010. He was the supervisor of 10 PhD candidates, has co-supervised 5 PhD candidates.
He is currently working on computational electrodynamics, slow light, quantum plasmonics, and solar energy management.
Future version will incorporate real PMLs to zoom at the permittivity discontinuities.
Des chercheurs du LP2N viennent de démontrer expérimentalement que, dans certaines circonstances, un asservissement classique permet de stabiliser un système quantique.
Philippe Bouyer du laboratoire LP2N de l’Institut d’Optique Graduate School se voit remettre le prix de la Fondation Louis D. - Institut de France.
Le prix Pierre Faurre a été décerné à Laurent COGNET, directeur de recherche au CNRS, Laboratoire Photonique Numérique et Nanosciences à l’Institut d’Optique Graduate School de Bordeaux.
