Frederic Grillot was born in Versailles (France), on August 22, 1974. He received the M.S. degree from the University of Dijon, France (1999), and the Ph.D. degree from the University of Besançon, France (2003). His Ph.D. research activities were conducted within the Optical Component Research Department in Alcatel-Lucent working on the effects of the optical feedback in semiconductor lasers and the impact of this phenomenon has on optical communication systems. From 2003 to 2004, he was with the Institut d’Electronique Fondamentale (University Paris-Sud) where he focused on integrated optics modeling and on Si-based passive devices for optical interconnects. Since September 2004, he has been working with the Institut National des Sciences Appliquees as an Associate Professor. His main research activities are on advanced laser diodes using new materials like quantum dots for low-cost applications as well as on nonlinear dynamics in semiconductor lasers. From 2008 to 2009, he was also a Visiting Professor at the University of New Mexico (USA) leading research on optoelectronics at the Center for High Technology Materials. He is the author and coauthor of 40 journal papers and of more than 70 papers in international conferences. He is a regular reviewer for several high-impact factor international journals. Since September 2010, he has been working as an Adjunct Associate Professor at Telecom ParisTech (fomerly Ecole Nationale Superieure des Telecommunications), France, working on optoelectronic devices for optical communications. His main research interests include advanced laser diodes using new materials like QDs for low-cost applications as well as nonlinear dynamics in semiconductor lasers.
