Dr Stéphane Schilt obtained his master degree in physics from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and his PhD in technical sciences in 2002 from the same institution for his work on trace gas sensing by laser spectroscopy. After a 3-year post-doc where he worked on photoacoustic spectroscopy and stabilized lasers, he joined the company IR Microsystems in Lausanne to develop low-cost gas sensors based on near-infrared VCSEL and DFB lasers. Since 2009, he has been senior scientist at Laboratoire Temps-Fréquence at the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland. His research interest is focused on novel optical frequency combs for time and frequency metrology and spectroscopy, studies of frequency noise in semiconductor lasers and active stabilization methods for noise reduction, and mid-infrared QCL frequency-stabilization and applications in spectroscopy. His areas of expertise include high resolution laser molecular spectroscopy (wavelength/frequency modulation spectroscopy, photoacoustic spectroscopy,..), trace gas sensing, noise and stabilization of lasers, optical frequency combs, and time and frequency metrology.
