Organized by Le Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (Le Cnam) and Thales Research & Technology (TRT) within the framework of the EUIMWP Cost Action (European Integrated Microwave Photonics), this training school covers the application of integrated photonics for aerospace, satellite & radar technologies.

1 - Space

  • Free space optical communications
  • Spatial environment, Cost-effective and low-SWaP telecommunications satellite payload
  • MWP-based Space Instrument
  • Highly flexible and reconfigurable photonics-enabled satellite payloads

2 – Radar

  • Compact high-frequency beam-steered systems based on IMWP technologies, radar systems of wider spectral bandwidth (>40 GHz), lower timing jitter (<15 fs), real time signal generation and processing based on IMWP technologies.
  • Integrated Microwave Photonic Filters

The training school will be hosted at the facilities of CNAM in central Paris (for two days: 3-4 Feb.) and at TRT (for one day: 5 Feb.). The training school will include talks from experts based in industry and academia and is mainly intended for Ph.D. students and early career investigators. Visits of industrial laboratories TRT and III-V Lab will be organized.


Attendance at the Training School is free of charge, but requires registration.
