On October 8, Farsane Tabataba-Vakili was one of 30 women scientists in France to win a L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women in Science award. Ms. Tabataba-Vakili earned recognition for her research in optoelectronics, which aims to improve micro light sources. She is currently completing her dissertation, co-supervised by CNRS-C2N and INAC.
Specifically, Ms. Tabataba-Vakili’s work focuses on the fabrication and characterization of photonic circuits and micro-lasers injected into the nitride-based semiconductor materials used in LEDs and Blu-ray lasers. Her goal is to develop micro-lasers (for discs just tens of microns in diameter) injected electrically and coupled with photonic circuits capable of guiding and spectrally filtering light.
