B-PHOT researcher Nathalie Vermeulen receives the international LIGHT2015 Young Women in Photonics Award

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.

B-PHOT booth at EU Open Doors attracts thousands of visitors, including EC Vice-President Maros Sefcovic

B-PHOT showcased the power of light and photonics on Saturday 9 May 2015 at the occasion of the EU Open Door Day in the Berlaymont building. Thousands of inquisitive EU citizens visited the B-PHOT booth, where B-PHOT researchers explained the basic principles of light and illustrated the impact of light technology on our daily lives. The multitude of hands-on experiments and the variety of demonstrations excited both young and old. Whereas the “solar-boat” competition was extremely popular with kids, the infrared imaging camera and its applications impressed everybody.
