Bernard Dussardier received the M.Eng. degree in optical physics from the Ecole Supérieure d’Optique (Orsay, France) in 1989 and his Ph.D. degree and Habilitation à Diriger les Recherches in physics from the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis (UNS), France in 1992 and 2007, respectively. After a postdoc at the Optoelectronics Research Center (Southampton, UK) from 1992 till 1995, he has been a Research Scientist at CNRS at the Laboratoire de Physique de la Matière Condensée (LPMC), UNS, where he is a group leader. He has coauthored more than 60 articles in international peer-reviewed journals and refereed proceedings and has more than 120 contributed and invited communications in international and national conferences. His current interests include specialty optical fibres either doped with rare-earth and/or transition metal ions or having special waveguiding properties (chromatic dispersion, nonlinearities, large-mode area, etc.) and in fiber lasers. He is a Member of the IEEE.
