 R&D Optics group

Research and Development in Optics, Instrumentation, Telescopes, Detectors

The R&D optics group, founded in the 70’s by André Baranne, proposes innovations for astronomical instrumentation through the development of new concepts and research in optics. Beside our involvements in the major astronomical instrumentation programs, many R&D programs are carried out in various instrumentation domains. The team innovations in instrumentation trigger transverse links with the LAM research groups, technological facilities and technical departments.

  • October 2018
    This fall 2018 sees a rich blossoming of students. Five arrivals are reinforcing the PhD students group today: Kelly JOAQUINA will work on curved sensors for astronomical instrumentation, Loic BARBOT on High precision sensors for maritime navigation, Vincent CHAMBOULEYRON on Fourier filtering wave front sensing, Zibo KE on Laser Guide Star wave-front sensing for ELTs, Louis DUVEAU on Freeform optics for multi-spectral imaging.
