The laboratory is equipped with two darkened probe-stations for testing bare optoelectronic chips.

Conventional instrumentations consist of a 3 GHz class measurement chain, composed of a digital oscilloscope and a pulse/pattern generator. Two Agilent semiconductor analyzers and a high resolution LCR meter are available for the electrical characterization of semiconductors.

For conventional and quantum applications the optical instrumentation consists of a shared (with other labs) range of detectors for SWIR NIR and visible. SPAD photon counters for SWIR, NIR and visible. Fiber lasers, telecom power, with laser controller. Light transfer is usually done with fibers.

Multichannel counters and pulse cross-correlators down to 1.3 ns bin width, and Time to Digital converters with 70 ps resolution are available.
