Jean-Yves Dupuy

Paris-Saclay, France
Head of Research Department


PhD & Dipl. Eng. in Electrical Engineering, respectively from University of Cergy-Pontoise and Ecole Nationale Supérieure de l'Electronique et de ses Applications.


Jean-Yves Dupuy is a Research Department Head at Nokia Bell Labs, Emerging Materials Components and Devices, III-V Lab. He joined Alcatel-Lucent in 2005, just after receiving his Electrical Engineer degree from ENSEA, Cergy, France, and received a PhD summa cum laude from University og Cergy-Pontoise in 2015.

He is leading research activities aiming at pioneering high speed analog and digital interfaces for performance-critical optoelectronic and RF systems, covering modeling, design, fabrication, packaging and characterization of high performance semiconductor devices, integrated circuits and modules, at microwave and millimeter wave frequencies.
Jean-Yves is the author or co-author of more than 80 scientific peer-reviewed publications and 3 patents. He is a Reviewer for IEEE MTT-T, JSSC and JSTQE publications.

His specialties are very high speed integrated circuits, modules and sub-systems for performance critical communication technologies.

From 2005 to 2008, he has developped a portfolio of state-of-the art transimpedance amplifiers integrated in a photoreceivers product line for 40G optical communication systems. From 2008 to 2011, he extended this portfolio and contributed to pioneering transmitters and receivers for 100G coherent communication systems. He has designed distributed amplifiers holding the swing-speed product world record since 2012. Since 2013, he has been leading a very high speed optoelectronic functional packaging effort aiming at pioneering beyond-100G optical communication systems. Since 2016, he has been extending this research scope to high speed analog-and-digital interfaces.
