Always good to see the happy face of our VUB B-PHOT Doctors who are building an exciting career path. Thiago Raddo graduated last year as the first co-tutelle PhD student between VUB and USP (University of São Paolo), with highest honors, paving the way to shape the future optical network. Locaweb Futuro Hitech in Brazil recently published on his research experience and the impact of photonics in many applications in our daily life.
A long title worthwhile as Benjamin has successfully shown the important opportunities carbon-based materials offer for integrated nonlinear optics during his PhD research. As in electronics, also in photonics the aim is to develop very compact components that are fabricated on a chip.
SPIE student chapter at Vrije Universiteit Brussels (VUB) successfully organized the annual 'Light Night'. With this theme, we took a closer look at the advantages of having a Photonics background, explored how we can take smart career decisions and how to solve problems in academia and industries effectively and efficiently. Students, alumni, professors and professionals joined in for an update of the most recent opportunities that photonics and optics have in store today to build a great future.
OSA is granting the optics and photonics community free access to a collection of the most downloaded articles in this topic area over the past year from Applied Optics. The article "Freeform optical design for a non-scanning corneal imaging system with a convexly curved image" resulting from the research of our VUB B-PHOT Postdoc Researcher Yunfeng Nie is among those most downloaded papers.
