 Groupe R&D Optique & Instrumentation

Recherche et Développement en Optique, Instrumentation, Télescopes et Détecteurs

Le pôle de R&D en optique et instrumentation, fondé en 1970 par André Baranne, travaille à l’amélioration des performances de l’instrumentation astronomique par le développement de nouveaux concepts et une recherche de pointe en optique. Tout en participant aux programmes majeurs d’instrumentation astronomique, l’équipe mène des activités de R&D amont dans de nombreux domaines. Son activité d’innovation instrumentale permet d’établir des liens transverses entre les pôles de recherche les plateformes technologiques et les services techniques du LAM. 

Dernières nouvelles

  • November 2019
    This month we have a new PhD student starting in GRD : Isabelle RACICOT started this November 1st and will work on the Meso-CORTEX project on neuroscience and instrumentation with Marc FERRARI, a collaboration project between LAM and Institut des Neuroscience de la Timone (INT). Welcome Isabelle !
    We also have a new research engineer who started this November 1st in Service Optics and in close collaboration with GRD : Maxime LOPEZ will work on the HiRISE project and coordinate the AIT activities on the development of the HiRISE prototype.
    This month, Cedric Taïssir HERITIER successfully defended his PhD with honors on the development of innovative calibration strategies for ELTs with pyramid Wavefront Sensors. Congrats Taïssir !
  • October 2019
    We have a new PhD student in the team : Mona EL MORSI started this October 1st and will work on the HiRISE project and develop a prototype for this instrument with Arthur VIGAN and the HiRISE team. Welcome Mona !
    This month also, the MAVIS project successfully passed its PHASE A mid-term review at ESO with a strong contribution of LAM on the design of its adaptive optics system.
    Many members of team also showed a strong participation to two major conferences held this month : 6 GRD members were participating to the Spirit of Lyot conference 2019 edition in Tokyo, with 3 contributed talks. In parallel, 6 other GRD members attended the Wavefront Sensor Workshop in Florence, contributing with 6 presentations and 2 chairs for this workshop. In particular, both Pierre JANIN-POTIRON and Olivier FAUVARQUE received an award for their talks : congrats to both of them !
    This month, LAM and the Planetary Systems Team had a major result published in Nature Astronomy, revealing evidence that the asteroid Hygiea is in fact a dwarf planet. GRD members Romain FETICK and Thierry FUSCO took part to this discovery thanks to their deconvolution technique that helped reveal the smooth and spherical shape of the asteroid. Congrats to the GSP team and to Romain and Thierry !
  • September 2019
    This month , the GRD WFIRST team successfully passed the Optical Preliminary Design Review for its contribution (8 surpolished off-axis parabolic mirrors) to the WFIRST Coronagraphic Instrument (CGI). Congrats to the team !
    Our team had its first GRD days this month, at OHP. It was a great opportunity for many member of the group to review and discuss the organization and operation of the group in an off-site environment.
    This month we will also have the visit of Mojtaba Taheri, PhD student at University of Victoria, working on instrumentation and fine analysis of astrometry from AO data with J.P Veran. He will be working on the LOOPS bench with Pierre and Vincent, to implement a second SLM and perform tests on new type of Wave-Front Sensors.
