Research interests:

Dr. Vidal’s research focuses mainly on Microwave and Terahertz Photonics. In particular:

· Fiber-based THz sensing systems and components for industrial applications: Sensing in the THz range opens up new possibilities in a wide range of applications (non-destructive testing of composites, semiconductor, biological samples…).

· Photonic-assisted wireless links: Optical technology can be used to generate, distribute and process wireless signals even reaching carrier frequencies difficult to obtain with other technologies such as sub-THz bands.

· Nonlinear generation and processing of THz signals: Inorganic and organic crystals can be used to generate THz signals reaching high intensity. These can be used to control and manipulate different materials.

· Optical beamforming: Photonics brings new functions to antenna array systems such as long delays, beam-squint-free ultrabroadband operation and antenna remoting through optical beamforming.
