Laboratory of Hybrid Photonics

The Hybrid Photonics Laboratory at EPFL develops electronic-photonic chips for applications in fundamental and applied sciences. For this, we combine ultra-high speed signals in the microwaves and terahertz with optical ones inside the latest integrated photonics and metasurface technologies.

Hybrid electro-optic device that can be used for detection and generation of terahertz light.


Integrated terahertz photonics

We use nonlinearities in state-of-the-art lithium niobate and silicon-on-insulator circuits to address terahertz applications.

Gigahertz-speed metasurfaces

We use hybrid silicon-organic metasurfaces to achieve pixelated, high-efficiency control of free-space light at gigahertz speeds.

Advanced sub-cycle metrology

We explore the physics and limits of sub-cycle metrology techniques down to the quantum limit.
