The Optoelectronics and Laser Technology group forms part of the department of Electronics Technology at the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid. Our group is composed of researchers from a wide area of disciplines, including physics, industrial engineering and telecommunications engineering. The fundamental area of investigation and development is based on Optoelectronic systems using laser technology, for a wide range of applications in the fields of telecommunications, industrial (electronic and robitics), civil, and aeronautical engineering. Our activities include industrial and basic research applications and a combination of both.

Our main line of interests are focussed on telemetry measurements,  characterisation, development and simulation of high speed laser (MLLD, Gain-Switching) devices, development of optical sensors and optoelectronic instrumentation, optical communications, Laser interferometry, and high speed optical communication and sampling systems.

Líneas de Investigación

  • Laser interferometry for fusion plasma diagnosis. 
  • Experimental design, modelling and characterisation of high-speed (mode-locking) semiconductor laser diodes.
  • Interferometric instrumentation systems with high sensitivity optical fibres for the measurement of vibrations, temperatures and acoustic signals.
  • Development of Optoelectronic Neural Networks for vision systems.
