Welcome to the Laboratory of Wave Engineering !
Be it of electrical nature (microwaves, optics), or of mechanical nature (acoustics, elastics), wave propagation is at the core of many modern technological applications, such as telecommunications, energy transfer and management, information processing or medical imaging. In our laboratory, we focus on unveiling the mechanisms that govern wave propagation in complex artificial media, and apply our science to tackle challenging applicative problems, including:
– Transmitting waves through opaque media for imaging applications
– Forcing waves to propagate on one-way roads, even in the presence of obstacles, disorder or defects.
– Manipulating waves at scales smaller than their wavelength, for ultracompact devices, efficient sensing, or subwavelength imaging.
