Photonics Toolkit, Université Laval slide 5 UCF – We have outgrown Google Maps Founded in 1968 > 50,000 students! > 1200 faculty > 180,000 degrees awarded CREOL: always evolving
Photonics Toolkit, Université Laval slide CREOL approved as a type II Center by BOR 1986 Florida Legislature appropriates $1.5M 1987 M.J. Soileau becomes First Director of CREOL –Location: double-wide trailer on CREOL bldg site 1995 Move into new CREOL building 1998 Provost announces the School of Optics –Degrees in Optics 2004 Provost announces the College of Optics & Photonics Dean: Eric W. van Stryland 2008 New Dean: Bahaa Saleh CREOL - timeline
Photonics Toolkit, Université Laval slide 7 CREOL, The College of Optics and Photonics Built in ,000 sq. ft. 85 labs FULL!!
Photonics Toolkit, Université Laval slide 8 Fourteen years later: many changes!
Photonics Toolkit, Université Laval slide 9 New (2008) CREOL extension – Incubator space and Townes Laser Institute (TLI)
Photonics Toolkit, Université Laval slide 10 3,000 sq ft clean room, Class 100/1000 Leica e-beam lithography 1 of 3 in the country 10 nm resolution! resource center for univ & user facility for industry. Funded separately by matching $ now ~$10M of facilities Hired 5 new faculty; e.g. eminent scholar Dennis Deppe, UT Austin, inventor of near IR quantum dot laser. Enabling technology: high power, high efficiency lasers for e.g. medical diagnostics Semiconductor Quantum dots Laser microcavity NanoPhotonics Systems Fabrication Facility
Photonics Toolkit, Université Laval slide 11 Total Funding Received by Year Funding in $Millions FPCE FPCE-TLI Funding – seems healthy! About 30% of funding via Industry related programs
Photonics Toolkit, Université Laval slide 12 Affiliates program – 7 years of growth Enough about administration – how about the people?
Photonics Toolkit, Université Laval slide 13 We’re still growing ~ 6 new faculty in next 5 years The people of CREOL (Creoleans?) 24Optics Faculty 11Research and associate faculty 160Optics Students 55 Research staff 18 Administrative support CREOL is a youthful place!
