ABOUT GHENT UNIVERSITY
Ghent University is a world of its own. Employing more than 8,000 people, it is actively involved in education and research, management and administration, as well as technical and social service provision on a daily basis. It is one of the largest, most exciting employers in the area and offers great career opportunities. With its 11 faculties and more than 80 departments offering state-of-the-art study programmes grounded in research in a wide range of academic fields, Ghent University is a logical choice for its staff and students.
The Photonics Research Group (about 85 people) is associated with IMEC and is part of the Department of Information Technology of Ghent University. The group is headed by Prof. R. Baets and has been active in photonics device research for many years. The other professors in the group are P. Bienstman, W. Bogaerts, B. Kuyken, N. Le Thomas, G. Morthier, G. Roelkens and D. Van Thourhout. The main research directions are silicon nanophotonics, heterogeneous integration, optical communication, photonic (bio)sensors and photonic integrated circuits for biomedical applications in the near-infrared and mid-infrared wavelength range. Particularly, the silicon nanophotonics work focuses on the design and fabrication of SOI-based photonic devices using standard lithographic techniques compatible with CMOS-processing.
The Photonics Research Group has been coordinating the network of excellence ePIXnet and is involved in a number of EU-projects, including the H2020 projects Aquarius, MIRPHAB, CALADAN, MEDPHAB & INSPIRE. Furthermore, the group is partner of the Center for Nano- and Biophotonics of Ghent University and the group has been awarded four ERC Independent Researcher Starting Grants, one ERC Consolidator Grant and two ERC Advanced Investigator Grants.
