École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne


Our research mission is to model and develop hardware/software systems based on quantum devices. Particular emphasis is on high-speed 2D/3D optical sensing, embedded & reconfigurable processing architectures, single photon avalanche devices (SPAD) and design optimization techniques.

Our teaching mission is to equip engineers and scientists with a multi-disciplinary knowledge on state-of-the-art hardware/software systems.
