Moreover, the continual development of new online services requires sustaining an ever-increasing traffic capacity, which runs squarely into information-theory transmission limits and an uncontrolled energy consumption both. This course is supported by teaching and research groups renowned worldwide, in topics from Fundamental Physics to Information Theory through Computer Science and Networks.

The Master Degree in Optical Networks and Photonic Systems (ROSP) is offered by Paris-Saclay University.


  • Vertical knowledge on Optical Communications: from Device Physics, through Optical Transmission to Networking, Information Theory and Digital Signal Processing
  • Open knowledge from Optical Communications to other applications of Photonics
  • Offer a practical ability with substantial laboratory work for all topics
  • Offer both opportunity for future research work or applied work in companies linked with the Photonics domain

We aim to train engineers and researchers who can meet these challenges: design optical communication systems suited to given constraints and required applications; design cross-layer optical network architectures, from the physical layer to higher network layers; select optical components according to their performances among current and future solutions; and design the photonic devices needed for optical data processing and transport in future networks.
