Prof. Camille Sophie Brès

Associate Professor

Camille-Sophie Brès completed her studies in Electrical Engineering at McGill University, Montréal in 2004. In 2007, she submitted her doctoral thesis on the conception, demonstration and analysis of optical code division multiple access (CDMA). She has until recently been research assistant at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at the University of California, San Diego.


Research Area

My current research has been focused on closing the gap between real-time signal processing speeds and transmission rates. This research rests on two basic principles: 1) parametric processing in optical fibers, and 2) new class of ultra-fast signal processor for both digital and analog signaling.
I have addressed some of these challenges by the following projects:
- Data manipulation by linear and higher order parametric interactions, such as wavelength multicasting in single and multiple-pump parametric mixer. In addition, I have worked on multi-wave and high data rates (>100 Gb/s) manipulation
- All-optical processing for real time analysis of arbitrary-rate, arbitrary-format data stream. This lead to the first demonstration of polychromatic optical sampling and full real-time deconstruction of 320 Gb/s data to 8x40 Gb/s    streams in a single parametric gate, an absolute record for a single device
- Short pulse sources and wideband signal behavior in nonlinear media with a focus on RF-based cavity-less pulse sources, and the fundamental limits of parametric pulse generation.
