Researcher @ XLIM
Philippe ROY was born in May 1971 in Bellac (France) and received his Ph Degree in Microwave Electronics and Optoelectronics (speciality Photonics and Electronics Systems) in 1997 in the University of Limoges. He is now a CNRS senior researcher and head of the Photonics Department at XLIM, which is a mixed laboratory of University of LIMOGES and CNRS. He is involved in design, fabrication and characterisation of specialty and composite fibres mainly dedicated to advanced fibre sensor systems and to very high-power fibre lasers. He develops rare earth doped fibre with complex structure based on an aperiodic design to reach higher power levels without modal instabilities and/or non-conventional emitted spectrum.
