Great research visit from Prof. Michael Menard!

It was great to host Prof. Michäel Menard for the past few months at Unicamp through his sabbatical leave! Can’t believe three months have already gone and its time for him to go back .  The picture shows that we can’t only leave of  science!

Mario Souza receives IFGW’s prize for best PhD thesis awarded in 2017!

Our PhD alumni   Mario Souza (now in the USA working at a startup) received the prize for the best PhD thesis awarded in 2017 at the Gleb Wataghin Physics Institute. During his PhD, under advisory of Prof. Frateschi, Mario worked on various aspects of Silicon micro cavities. His PhD thesis can be downloaded at …

Mario got a job in a Bay area (San Francisco) startup that is running on Stealth mode, congrats!

Check out media highlight from Mario’s Nature Communications paper!

Lais poster upgraded to E-poster at CLEO 2018!

Welcome David!

David Bellec, an undergraduate student from L’Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Ingénieurs de Caen (ENSICAEN) in France, joined us for an internship. He will be working together with Marvyn, Lais, and Louise to improve our group velocity dispersion measurement setup.

SAMSUNG fellowship

Tunable light filters In this partnership between SAMSUNG and the Device Research Laboratory, the goal is to investigate tunable light filters. The project is led by professors Thiago Alegre and Gustavo Wiederhecker at the Gleb Wataghin Physics Institute in collaboration with scientists at Samsung Research Brazil (SRBR). We are currently searching for outstanding candidates pursuing …

Rodrigo’s Scientific Reports is out!

Abstract: Photonic crystals use periodic structures to create frequency regions where the optical wave propagation is forbidden, which allows the creation and integration of complex optical functionalities in small footprint devices. Such strategy has also been successfully applied to confine mechanical waves and to explore their interaction with light in the so-called optomechanical cavities. Because of …
