B-PHOT's research on the Butterfly micro-structured optical fiber sensor is featured in the July 2015 edition of Laser Focus World.
On the 1st July 2015, Andrea Ceglia successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis entitled "Unravelling technology and distribution of ancient glass by means of X-ray and UV-vis-NIR spectroscopy" in a public session.
In celebration of the international year of light IYL2015 EU Director Khalil Rouhana, Rector Paul De Knop, B-PHOT Director Hugo Thienpont, Director Henri Simons and Chairman Freddy Thielemans of the Atomium officially opened the exhibition “ID#2015: Discover the power of light!” on 11 June 2015. The inauguration was part of the PhotonicSplash event, organised in the framework of the European GoPhoton project, and happened in the presence of several GoPhoton partners from Barcelona, Berlin, Paris and Bratislava, as well as 160 VIPs.
In the frame of the International Year of Light 2015, Nathalie Vermeulen from the Brussels Photonics Team receives the “LIGHT2015 Young Women in Photonics Award”. She is granted this prestigeous price for “introducing a disruptive model for the nonlinear process of Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering and employing it to conceptualize a novel cooling technique for Raman lasers. She also came up with a groundbreaking phase matching approach for on-chip nonlinear wavelength converters, enabling device manufacturing in photonic foundries with standard fabrication rules. Today she impacts mid-infrared solid-state laser development, and targets next‐generation nonlinear photonic devices based on graphene.” The Award ceremony will take place on June 24 at the World of Photonics Congress in Munich.
