David Marco and Julio César Quiceno present their results at IONS 2019, Barcelona, June 2019


In his talk entitled “Two-dimensional geometric phase vortex grating based on the optimal triplicator design”, David presented the design and characterization of a liquid-crystal geometric phase diffraction grating that generates 3×3 diffraction orders with vortex beams of different topological charges, and showed the operation of this grating as a vortex detector. These results have recently been published in Optics Express: link to the paper.

Julio César presented a poster entitled “Hybrid vector beams generated by cascaded q-plates” where he demonstrated a q-plate-based optical system capable of generating a variety of hybrid vector beams, and showed the rotation of their polarization pattern when comparing the near field and the far field captures. This optical system is more compact than those based on SLMs whilst bearing a notable degree of versatility.

They have enjoyed the interesting conferences, scientific discussions and networking opportunities of this conference hosted by the OSA student chapter at ICFO and backed by the International OSA Network of Students. Link to the conference.

Carlos Hernández at UMH for the International Day of Light – Sculpting laser pulses


Carlos HernandezIn May 16th 2019, we celebrated the International Day of Light. We had the visit of Dr. Carlos Hernández García, from the Research Group in Applications of Laser and Photonics Applications (ALF-USAL) of the University of Salamanca, a recognized expert in the generation of ultra-fast structured laser pulses

He imparted an excellent talk entitled Sculpting laser pulses, where he explained the Nobel Prize in Physics 2018, awarded to Arthur Ashkin, Gérard Mourou and Donna Strickland for their breakthroughs in laser physics. The talk can be viewed on line at the following link.

This conference was organized by the Local Section of Alicante of the Royal Spanish Physics Society (RSEF), in collaboration with the Department of Physics, the Institute of Bioengineering and the Polytechnical School of UMH, and was attended by over 80 students and faculty members.

We were also supported by SPIE, that provided Women in Optics agendas!

Prof. Glenn Boreman visits UMH and talks about how Photonics lights the world


2017 SPIE President Prof. Glenn Boreman has visited University Miguel Hernandez on May 21st, 2018, as part of his visit to Spain to participate at the events of the International Day of Light. Prof. Boreman is Chair of the Department of Physics and Optical Science at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte, and Director of the Center for Optoelectronics & Optical Communications.

He delivered the conference How Photonics lights the world at the Politechnical School of Elche, with great success of audience of professors and students. Below, with Augusto Beléndez (Univ. Alicante), Javier Alda (Univ. Complutense) and Inmaculada Pascual (Univ. Alicante). SPIE Women in Optics planners were handed in to the young attendees to promote optics and photonics.

Ignacio Moreno invited speaker at the AOIM XI workshop


AOIMIgnacio Moreno participated as invited speaker in the Workshop on Adaptive Optics for Industry and Medicine AOIM XI, organized by Pablo Artal and his group at the University of Murcia, in March 2018, 4-7.

Our latest results on the adaptive generation and detection of vector beams by means of liquid crystal spatial light modulators were presented in the talk entitled “Polarization Diffractive Elements displayed in Liquid Crystal Spatial Light Modulators”.

The workshop had very interesting talks, and a great ambience.
