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.
New services and technologies lead to unprecedented and insatiable demand of data traffic, which requires higher security, flexible bandwidth allocation and optimal cost-efficiency. With Fiber-To-The-Home (FTTH), applications such as tactile internet, telemedicine and real-time 3-D content generation gets one step closer to effective implementation within the next wave of innovation.
As part of a co-tutelle between VUB B-PHOT and USP, he performed an important part of his research at Brussels Photonics to solve security issues introducing an innovative approach to generate chaos from a solitary laser diode. Simply using mechanical strain, he showed that standard Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs ) can generate chaotic polarization fluctuations.
