Evert Ebraert defended his PhD successfully unleashing the potential of Deep Proton Writing for optical telecommunication

One million hours of video is transmitted all over the world every minute. One of the main contributors to this huge number is Netflix, for which you require 25 Mbps of download speed to stream ultra-high definition content. With increased use of cloud based services and more and more devices (speakers, lamps, thermostats, etc.) being connected to the Internet besides an already increasing number of tablets, phones and laptops, we are approaching the limit of the bandwidth our internet service providers can provide us with, with electrical telecommunication technology.

Etienne Averlant successfully defended his PhD thesis and graduated as Doctor in Science and Doctor in Engineering at ULB and VUB

Etienne Averlant has successfully defended his PhD thesis for which he carried out experimental and theoretical studies of localized structures in Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs), also called cavity solitons. Such structures consist of bright peaks of light, localized in space that can be switched on or off, in the plane transverse to the propagation of the beam. They have notably been proposed for two applications: all-optical information processing, and information storage.
