Pascal Landais received the Ph.D degree in Applied Physics from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Télécommunications, Paris, France, in 1995. His early work concerned the study of bistable and self-pulsating semiconductor lasers as all-optical functional components in fibre telecommunication systems. In 1996, he joined the Physics Department of Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland where he developed low-coherence semiconductor lasers for data storage and stabilized Fabry-Perot lasers. Between 1997 and 1999, he was involved in research activities on micro-cavity light emitting diodes under the European project SMILED. Between 1999 and 2000, he was development manager in CeramOptec Ltd, Ireland. Since January 2001, he is a lecturer in the School of Electronics Engineering, Dublin City University, Ireland. His current research topics include components for optical communication systems and TeraHertz generation such semiconductor optical amplifiers, passively mode-locked semiconductor lasers. Dr. Landais is a TMR Marie Curie Fellow. He is also a holder of four patents.
