At the moment, the OLT dealt with more than twenty exogenous Projects, whose leader is an external academic laboratory. These projects can be split into two categories, one hand those which require only a few technological steps (1/3 of the demands), and on the other hand projects implying a technological development (2/3 of the demands).
An example of external project
As an example, a researcher from LPCA has submitted a project the aim of which is to develop a time-domain terahertz spectroscopy set up. The main componant is a photoconductive antenna. The OLT has fabricated the PA devices, several technological runs have been subsequently achieved and articles  have already been issued on this on-going project.
