Matthieu Roussey, PhD, Associate Professor

Matthieu Roussey followed his studies in Besançon in France where he obtained his PhD degree in 2008 (Institute FEMTO-ST, University of Franche-Comté). His thesis topic was Tunable lithium niobate photonic crystals. From end 2007 to 2011, he worked as project/team leader in the Optics & Photonics Technology Laboratory (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Neuchâtel, Switzerland). His post-doctoral research was based on metallic nano-photonic structures, micro-optics, near-field optics, and related applications. In 2011, Matthieu Roussey moved to the University of Eastern Finland, in the Department of Physics and Mathematics to work on guided wave optics, micro- and nano-structures, and novel concepts. He now belongs to the integrated optics team. He became associate professor in Experimental Photonics in October 2016. He has published about 35 peer-reviewed scientific articles, several book chapters and over 50 conference papers. His main research topics are lab-on-chip, lab-on-fiber, integrated telecommunication components, novel waveguide platforms, atomic layer deposition for photonics, SERS, bio-applications.
