Guilhem de Valicourt received the BSc degree in
applied physics from the National Institute of applied Sciences (INSA),
Toulouse, France, in 2008. From 2007 to 2008, he followed and passed the Master
of Science in Photonics Devices at Essex University, U.K. In 2008, he joined
Alcatel-Thales-CEA III-V lab where he was working on design, fabrication, and
characterization of Reflective SOA and directly modulated DFB lasers for
microwave photonic systems and next generation of optical access networks
toward the Ph.D. In 2011 he joined Alcatel-Lucent Bell Labs in France as a
research engineer and he is now a member of technical staff in Bell Labs USA since 2014.
His main research interests are focused on design and
characterization of advanced integrated photonics devices (in InP, silicon and
hybrid III-V on silicon platform), optical packet transport and switching for
metropolitan and wireless backhaul networks, technology for datacenters and
access networks. He has authored or co-authored more than 80 scientific papers
in journals and international conferences, two book chapters and holds 20
patents. He received the 2011 "Best project" award from
Alcatel-Lucent Bootcamp, the 2012 Marconi Young Scholar award and was a finalist
for the ParisTech Ph.D. prize in 2012.
