Patrice Camy is full professor at the University of Caen, responsible for a MASTER Diploma (M2 CEI). He is in charge of the optical waveguides activity in the group “Matériaux et Instrumentation Laser” of the CIMAP laboratory. He received the Master degree (DEA) in the speciality “Optique et Photonique” from the Institut d’Optique in Paris in 1993 and the Doctorate degree in Physics at the University of Pierre et Marie Curie (Paris) in 1996. His PhD work was performed for a great part in the Photonics division of the Corning Europe Company and was dedicated to the study of Ytterbium/Erbium-doped glasses for planar waveguides amplifiers needed in optical networks applications. P. Camy is now involved in several projects dealing with the spectroscopic study of rare earth doped materials in the form of bulk or waveguides for lasers or sensors applications. The main successes were obtained, with his colleagues, in the Infrared spectral domain, with Yb-doped Calcium fluoride crystals for high power laser systems. He also studies transfer efficiency in co-doped materials, showing the influence of clustering in some laser systems. His research activity also led to rare-earth-doped crystalline laser waveguides fabricated by Liquid Phase Epitaxy. In the recent years, P. Camy was supervisor of 6 PhD works and 5 Post-doc. He has been involved in 12 research contracts (5 as leader) and is Author or co-author of more than 60 articles in scientific journals with referees’ reports, co-inventor of 4 patents and co-winner of one Prize of « scientific innovation » for an optical CO2 sensor. He was recently appointed by the OSA board as Associate Editor for Optics Express Journal.
