About me

Goëry Genty carries out both experimental, numerical, and theoretical work in ultrafast photonics. He has established the Ultrafast Photonics research group at the Tampere University since 2007. The group is a pioneer and worldwide leader inultrafast laser dynamics, real-time characterization techniques, nonlinear instabilities, broadband light generation and correlation imaging. Prof. Genty is also the Director of the Flagship on Photonics Research and Innovation awarded in 2019 by the Academy of Finland. The Flagship is a joint national program for Photonics multi-disciplinary science and technology development, including 3 Finnish Universities (Tampere University, Aalto University, and Eastern Finland) and one research organization (VTT),involving more than 50 professors and 400 researchers.
