PhLAM, Laboratory of Physics of Lasers, Atoms and Molecules, is a mixed research unit (UMR 8523), under the dual supervision of the CNRS and the University of Lille. PhLAM’s research themes are mainly oriented towards light-matter interaction, ranging from cold atom physics to photonics, via molecular physics and the non-linear dynamics of optical or biological systems.
FiberTech Lille is a technological platform dedicated to the manufacture of innovative optical fibers. It comes from the Photonics team of the PhLAM laboratory under the dual supervision of the University of Lille and the CNRS. Since 2007, it is mainly located in the IRCICA building of the European Science Park of Haute-Borne. It is a world-class tool that concentrates many original equipment manufacturing, characterization and modeling of optical fibers that make it a unique site in France and around the world. It studies the light-guiding properties of new optical fibers to produce innovative fiber components.
