Sensors and Instrumentation
Techniques Group


The Sensors and Instrumentation Techniques Group’s main areas of research involve the development of new optical spectroscopy and interferometry techniques; the exploitation of new optical sources and architectures for optical signal generation and processing, and the development of instrumentation systems for different applications.

The group’s principal research lines are:


Optical Spectroscopy/Interferometry:

- Linear and non-linear spectroscopy.
- Dual-comb spectroscopy.
- Heterodyne and fiber interferometers.

Study and development of optical sources, techniques, and architectures for optical signal generation and processing (Gain Switching, Injection Locking, …).
