Erwan Pincemin is graduated from Ecole Supérieure d'Optique (SupOptique), Orsay, France and from Université Paris XI, Orsay, France in "Optics and Photonics" both in 1996.
In 1997, he joined Alcatel Alsthom Recherche, Marcoussis, France where he worked on dispersion-managed soliton propagation and optical regeneration for 40 Gbps WDM submarine transmission systems. In 2000, he is enrolled by France Telecom R&D, Lannion, France where he worked on high-speed optical terrestrial transmission systems at 10 Gbps, 40 Gbps and beyond. He participated to several European collaborative projects (NOBEL I & II, e-Photon-One …). More recently, in Orange Labs, Lannion, France, he is in charge of research on 100 Gbps and beyond optical transmissions, including advanced modulations, coherent detection, digital mitigation of fiber impairments, and has also some key contributions on flexible optical networking, in particular through his participation to European FOX-C and CELTIC SASER consortia. He is currently involved in ITU-T standardization process through his activities on interworking of 100 Gbps and beyond optical interfaces in Study Group 15. He is author and co-author of more than 130 journal and conference papers and 27 patents.
Erwan Pincemin is sub-committee chair of the Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics (CLEO) Europe and participated from 2007 to 2010 and again since 2017 to the technical program committee of the Optical Fibre Communications Conference (OFC).
