After her PhD thesis on 1.55μm high-speed semiconductor laser diodes, Sophie Bouchoule post-doctoral activities were at FT-CNET laboratories, then OPTO+ joint Alcatel-France Telecom Laboratory, where she was involved in the processing of high-speed laser sources at 1550 nm for emerging 40Gb/s applications. In 2001, she joined CNRS, Laboratoire de Photonique et de Nanostructures (LPN), in 2001, that became C2N in 2016.

Since 2001 she has been involved in the development of long-wavelength laser (V(E)CSEL) sources and III-V laser processing and technologies, with a specific emphasis on III-V inductively plasma etching for photonics. Since 2007 she has also been engaged in the development of III-V semiconductor/ organic UV-visible micro-emitters, especially semiconductor-nitride-based micro-emitters for the fabrication of “classical” optical sources as well as for a novel class of integrated coherent light sources, namely “polariton lasers”.

She is author or co-author of more than 130 papers in international journals and has contributed to more than 160 presentations at international conferences, including 25 invited talks. Since 2007, she has been the P.I. in 3 industrial R&D contracts dealing with optoelectronic devices and micro-nanotechnology.

Sophie has been in the management board of LPN clean room facilities from 2003 to 2007, and scientific advisor of LPN director (2012-2016) for “optoelectronic devices”.

Since 2018 she is in charge of the scientific coordination of C2N-RENATECH Micro-Nano Fabrication Facility.

She is deputy director of the doctoral school “EOBE – electrical, optical and bio-engineering” at Paris-Saclay University since its creation in 2015.
