Dominique M. Dagenais is a Program Director in the Electronics, Photonics and Magnetic Devices.  Her interest is in Optoelectronics.

After receiving her Diplôme d'Ingénieur from the Ecole Supérieure d'Optique in Orsay, France, she spent a year at the Institute of Optics, University of Rochester where she defended a thesis on uniform pellet illumination for Laser fusion. She then joined the French Atomic Energy Commission, working on high power Nd:YAG laser propagation, before coming to the Boston area, where she developed beam shaping optics for CO2 lasers at the AVCO Everett laboratories. In 1987 she joined the Naval Research Laboratory Optical Sciences division where she helped design and deploy the first three-axis fiber magnetic sensor, and demonstrated record sensitivity.

In 1999 she joined Alcatel and supported the development of novel optoelectronic active and passive devices for WDM fiber telecommunication.

Ms Dagenais has two patents and over 50 refereed journal publications. As a member she has been actively involved with the IEEE Photonics society and its local chapters.
