Research activities

Georges Semaan is a postdoctoral fellow at the OPERA-Photonics Group. His research area covers fiber resonators and oscillator design, temporal pulse shaping and compression, pulse characterization, high power and energy scaling techniques, and mid infrared frequency comb generation in driven optical resonators. He is co-author of more than 50 papers published in peer-reviewed international Journals and Conferences and 3 book chapters in Springer.

Teaching activities


Born in Lebanon in 1985, Dr. Georges Semaan began his academic journey with a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Computer and Communication Engineering in 2006, followed by a Master of Science diploma in Micro and Nanoelectronics in 2011. His interest in photonics led him to a second Master’s in Photonics, Signals, and Imaging in 2014.
Recognized by the French Ministry of Higher Education, he was granted a doctoral fellowship to pursue a Ph.D. at the University of Angers under Professor F. Sanchez. His research focused on nonlinear dynamics in fiber lasers and the generation of lasers using 2D nanomaterials. After completing his Ph.D. in 2017, he spent four years as a researcher and lecturer at the Technical Institute in Angers and the Department of Physics in Angers.
Currently, he is a postdoctoral researcher at the Opera Photonics Group in Brussels, Belgium, working on driven optical resonators and mid-infrared frequency combs.
