University of Arizona
Professor Blanche received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of Liege (Belgium) in 1999 in the field of non-linear optics and holography. He then held a post-doctoral position at the University of Arizona where he developed new refreshable holographic recording materials called photorefractive polymers. Back in Belgium, he co-founded a company manufacturing large volume phase gratings for the optics industry, astronomers, and space applications. Professor Blanche returned to the University of Arizona in 2005 where he is currently an Associate Research Professor.
