Education

Gabriel CHARLET was born in Rueil Malmaison (France) in 1976. Gabriel Charlet received an engineering degree from the École Supérieure d’Optique in 1999 (Orsay, France) and a PhD in physics in 2011 from University Paris XI.

Biography

He joined Alcatel Research and Innovation (now Alcatel Lucent Bell Labs) in 2000. Since then he has been working on WDM transmission systems and realized several multi-terabit/s transmission records. He also addressed the topic of advanced modulation formats. He is the first author of more than 40 papers including 10 Postdeadline papers in major conferences and more than 35 patents. Since 2008, he leads the WDM transmission group which intends to further increase total bit rate transported in an optical fiber without compromising the transmission reach.

Honors and Awards

In 2007, I received the “Fabry de Gramont” award for my work on fiber optics communication and advanced modulation formats. In 2010, I have been selected by the Technology Review from MIT (TR35) as one the 35 innovators below 35 years for my work on 100Gbit/s product using coherent detection. In 2011, I have been selected by Fast Company as one of the 100 most creative people in business and received also the World Technology award in communication technology.

I also received in 2010 the Bell labs President's award for the 100Gbit/s coherent (Long Haul-High capacity WDM interface)
