Sophie LaRochelle

Sophie LaRochelle received a Bachelor's degree in engineering physics from Université Laval, Canada, in 1987; and a Ph.D. degree in optics from the University of Arizona, USA, in 1992.

From 1992 to 1996, she was a Research Scientist at DRDC - Valcartier, where she worked on electro-optical systems.

She is now a professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Université Laval, where she holds a Canada Research Chair in Optical Fibre Communications and Components.

Her current research activities include active and passive devices for optical communication systems including fiber Bragg gratings, optical amplifiers, silicon photonics, and multi-wavelength or pulsed lasers.

She is also interested in packet-switched networks with photonic code processing, transmission of radio-over-fiber signals including GPS and optical signal processing.
