The IR and THz Photonics Laboratory at INRS is used to design and characterize photonic devices operating in the infrared and terahertz spectra. The IR and THz Photonics Laboratory has state-of-the-art equipment for the design, digital simulation, and optical characterization of infrared and terahertz photonic devices.
The lab studies nanophotonic components, especially metasurfaces, to determine their capacity to adapt radiation-matter interactions by exceeding the normal limits of natural materials.
The IR and THz Photonics Laboratory features:
The IR and THz Photonics Laboratory is available to Centre Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications Research Centre faculty, students, and staff for their research projects, with the lab manager’s authorization.
Lab resources can also be used for external collaborations or research and development contracts. Please contact us for more information.
The creation of the IR and THz Photonics Laboratory was funded primarily by the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI), the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and Fonds de recherche du Québec – Nature et technologies.
