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 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.

Fourier transform spectrometer on silicon with thermo-optic non-linearity and dispersion correction

Congratulations to Mario! In a recent collaboration between prof. Newton Frateschi and Mario Souza with prof. Yeshaiahu Fainman from UCSD our team has published a new design for a fourier transform spectrometer.

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 …
