Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Carnot de Bourgogne

General description

The project will be conducted in the SLCO group, Solitons, Lasers and Optical Communications of the Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Carnot de Bourgogne (ICB) at the University Bourgogne Franche-Comté (Dijon, France). The ICB institute is an UMR, “Unité Mixte de Recherche” between CNRS (Centre National Recherche Scientifique) and University of Burgundy. A strong support for the project will be obtained from these two institutions. The SLCO group consists of 14 researchers (12 experimenters and 2 theoreticians), with an additional average of 10 PhD students and post-docs. The group is led by Professor Guy Millot. It is part of the “Laboratoire d’Excellence” which gathers ICB (Dijon), FEMTO-ST (Besançon) and LNIO (Troyes), and has been selected in a national call for top-level scientific projects (5 M€/year over 8 years). The group has well-established expertize in the study of nonlinear optical effects, in particular in optical fibers (modulational instability, rogue waves, signal processing, optical turbulence, polarization attraction, lasers).

As per COFUND guidelines, fellowship programmes will be based on individual-driven mobility, i.e., researchers will be able to freely choose a research topic fitting their individual needs.

The subject of the research project is expected to contribute to European competitiveness and to be in the general field of Photonics and/or its applications. Within these limitations, applicants can freely choose both their research topic and their host organisation, in the spirit of the ‘European Charter for Researchers’.
