Laboratoire de photonique: de la science fondamentale aux dispositifs


The LuMIn research laboratory 

The LuMIn (Light, Material, and Interfaces) Laboratory is a research unit (FRE2036) created on 1st January 2020 under the administration of the Université Paris-Saclay, the ENS Paris-Saclay, the National Institute of Scientific Research (CNRS/INSIS), and CentraleSupélec.
Its research activities focus on the interaction between light and materials at different scales (atoms, materials, devices, and living systems) and its multidisciplinary applications. It provides new and original synergies at the boundary between optics and quantum physics, device technologies, as well as in vitro and in vivo exploration of fundamental biological processes in order to provide a better understanding of the pathogenesis of cancer and brain disorders.
This laboratory’s main activity relies on a broad range of optics expertise (lasers, non-linear optics, quantum optics, and plasmonics), with application developments for designing and creating materials, micro- and nanophotonic devices, microfluidic circuits, and for studying biochemical phenomena in cells, tissues, and living organisms.
This multidisciplinary and multi-level program addresses major societal issues, such as the processing and storage of information, sustainable development and alternative sources of energy, and public health.
