Mario Souza


Mario Souza received the B.S. degree in Physics from the State University of Campinas, Brazil, and the M.S. degree in Optical Sciences (Diplôme d’Ingénieur) from the Institut d’Optique Graduate School, France, both in 2012. In 2010 he was accepted to the Paristech double-degree program and awarded with a scholarship granted by the Brazilian government (Brafitec, CAPES). In 2011, he worked on the implementation of phase-locking between single-frequency diode lasers by electronic feedback for generating frequency combs at the Lasers and Applications Group (Unicamp). In 2012, Mario worked as R&D Engineering intern at Coherent Inc., Santa Clara, USA where he carried out research on the development of high-power optically pumped VECSELs emitting at 1180 nm and 1260 nm. Mario is a PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Newton Frateschi since August 2013. He has been exploring novel optical signal processing functionalities using coupled microresonators. Mario’s research interests include optical signal processing in integrated platforms and nanophotonics.
