The Light & Matter research group is working on the production and use of light. Our research themes are centered around the science and technology of light sources and lighting systems as well as the study of the uses of light and its interactions with the environment and society. The themes of the group are inseparable from the applications. Although our activities are strongly linked to applications, they do not neglect fundamental aspects in the field of energy conversion materials and systems, and to a lesser extent in the field of electric discharge physics for lighting.
In all our actions, we favor a holistic approach to the system. The group’s strategy consists in understanding the functioning of a complex system, studying its components and their interactions, with the ultimate objective of optimizing the system according to its application and use. To perfect this optimization we call upon our competences in modeling, in diagnosis, without neglecting the prototyping and the demonstration on a large scale.
