Dominique Pagnoux was born in Saint-Junien (France) in 1960. He received his PhD in electronics from the University of Limoges in 1987. Then he jointed the French CNRS as a researcher in the guided optics group of the Institut de Recherche en Communications Optiques et Microondes (IRCOM), currently Xlim Institute, in 1988. He was first involved in the modal metrology of multimode passive fiber components. Then he worked on erbium doped fiber amplifiers and lasers. From 1996 to 2006, his main research topics dealt with novel silica optical fibers, specially Bragg fibers and microstructured optical fibres : modelling methods, novel techniques devoted to the measurement of the propagation characteristics, design of optimised structures, applications to power amplification, sensing and non linear optics. Since 2006, his research interest mainly turned in the biophotonics domain : (i) advanced pulsed laser sources for biological cells characterization, especially by flow cytometry ; (ii) endoscopic polarimetric imaging for in situ in vivo medical diagnosis. Dominique Pagnoux was the author of 6 chapters of scientific books on optical fibers and applications and was co-author of more than 50 papers in international journal, 60 communications in international conferences (12 invited), and 10 international patents.
