MaximilienBillet
Maximilien received the MSc of physics, light-matter interactions in 2014. Then he received in 2018 his PhD in optoelectronics from the Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnologies / Lille university. Afterward, he joined the photonic research group of UGent. He had the opportunity to collaborate with several research institutions such as Imec, Panasonic corporation, CSEM... and works today in the field of integrated photonics mainly on lasers, modulators and nonlinear materials heterogeneous integration.
