Electronics and optics-photonics research in Québec City

Are you interested in electronics and optics-photonics research? In Québec City you will find a field in which researchers and companies combine science, know-how and a keen sense of innovation to stand out and transform their ideas into concrete solutions.

In this section you will be introduced to the many research centres that are working closely with local companies as well as those from elsewhere.

Research in electronics and optics-photonics

Institut national d’optique (INO)

The INO is a world leader in optics-photonics and the field’s largest applied research centre in Canada. With the largest pool of skills in the field, it provides optics-photonics services to companies of all sizes and in all sectors all over the world.

Centre d’optique, photonique et laser (COPL)

The COPL is one of the largest optics-photonics research centres in the world because of its state-of-the-art facilities, seasoned researchers and the scope of its program. Based at l’Université Laval, it brings together researchers from different universities in the province.

CERVO Brain Research Centre

The CERVO Brain Research Centre is one of the largest neuroscience and mental health centres in Canada. With its 60 researchers and their teams, it provides multidisciplinary expertise to the field, from membrane biophysics to social intervention. It includes, among other things, research chairs in biophotonics and neurophotonics.

How does it relate to optics-photonics? CERVO uses physics, engineering and optics-photonics techniques to find solutions to biological, psychiatric and clinical problems. The centre thereby facilitates great cooperation between physicists, engineers, neuroscientists and clinicians.

Defence Research and Development Canada Valcartier (DRDC Valcartier)

The DRDC, located in Valcartier, is part of a network of 8 national research centres (DRDCs) and is the largest national defence research centres in Canada.

The Computer Vision and Systems Laboratory (CVSL)

At the CVSL, 8 professors and their teams focus on the theme of computer vision and its industrial and biomedical applications. Many projects target specific industrial or biomedical applications.

Centre de robotique et de vision industrielles (CRVI)

The CRVI is a technology transfer centre with state-of-the-art laboratories and a multidisciplinary team in intelligent robotics, robotic welding and machine vision. Its mission is to increase manufacturing firms’ productivity through applied research.
