Welcome to our group page. If you are curious and enjoy a healthy dose of photonics, materials science and solid-state physics, then you have come to the right place. In the LNMP, we study the fundamental physics that take place in state-of-the-art materials and try to harness our observations to engineer novel devices. These can range from conventional devices such as light-emitting diodes and solar cells to more exotic quantum devices such as polariton lasers and single-photon sources.
Our studies focus mostly on designer materials such as small molecules, polymers, hybrid and quantum materials. These materials can be processed cheaply and they offer exceptional versatility for the tuning of electrical and optical properties.
We currently have openings for motivated PhD students and post-doctoral fellows. In the group, you will have the unique opportunity to be involved in all facets of device engineering from the characterization of new materials, to the fabrication and testing of devices.
The governments of Canada and Quebec offer generous PhD and postdoctoral fellowships to outstanding candidates. Those interested in applying are encouraged to contact us well in advance of the October deadlines.
