My research deals mainly with the quantum properties of light, especially in the regime of the so-called “continuous variables”, where one is interested in the study of the quantum fluctuations of the electromagnetic field of the light wave (investigating more the wave properties of quantum light than its particle properties).  I have also conducted different research projects about Optical Parametric Oscillators (OPOs), lasers and nonlinear optics. I have worked, both at the theoretical and experimental levels on the tailoring of quantum fluctuations of light fields, their quantum correlations and multi-partite entanglement, more precisely on the following subjects:

  • Study, generation and use of”non-classical states of light”, such as squeezed, correlated and entangled states.
  • Experimental and theoretical investigations of the quantum properties of highly multi-mode fields (optical systems with many degrees of freedom, such as spatial modes or frequency modes)
  • Applications to the improvement of the ultimate sensitivity of optical masurements (“quantum metrology”), for example in ultra-accurate space-time positioning. Applications to quantum information processing.
  • Quantum properties of optical images; application to the improvement of resolution and sensitivity in images.
  • Quantum properties of trains of ultrafast pulses and optical frequency combs; application to ultra-accurate clock synchronization and measurement based quantum computing.
  • Generation of mode-controlled highly multimode non-Gaussian states of light
  • Experimental and theoretical investigations of the quantum aspects of light-matter interaction in various nonlinear optical devices such as lasers, OPOs and opto-mechanical systems,


  • Fellow of the Optical Society (OSA)
  • Fellow of the European Optical Society (EOS)
  • Great prize Léon Brillouin of the French Optical Society (SFO) (“given for his whole research work to a world famous researcher in the field of optics having spent most of his life in France”).


  • Non Gaussian multimode quantum states of light
  • Optimal parameter estimation
