Pascuala García presents an SLM based optical microscope at the SPIE Optical Metrology Conference in Munich

SPIE PasPascuala Garcia presented the communication entitled “On axis programmable microscope using liquid crystal spatial light modulator” at the SPIE Optical Metrology Conference, held in Munich in June 25th to 29th, 2007.

In her presentation, she showed an optical microscope system we have developed, that includes an LCOS SLM display to perform opto-digital filtering on-axis. We use a Hamamatsu SLM, free of flickering, which can be tuned to fully eliminate the zero order component of the encoded diffractive filter, therefore making use of the full space-bandwidth. The system was demonstrated by implementing different optical processing operations based on phase-only gratings such as phase-contrast, band-pass filtering, additive and subtractive imaging, or Differential Interference Contrast (DIC) imaging.

Ignacio Moreno attends the 6th Workshop LCP in Ljubljana

lcp-ljbljanaIgnacio Moreno attended the 6th International Workshop on Liquid Crystals for Photonics – WLCP2016, that was held in Ljubljana (Slovenia) from September 14th to 16th.

In this workshop he gave an invited talk entitled “Liquid-crystal spatial light modulator based optical ac¡architecture for the full polarization modulation – Application to encode optical polarization devices”.

The LCP workshop is always particularly friendly to attend, after our organization in 2010 in Elche.

The picture shows Ignacio with our friends Juan Campos and Angel Lizana, from Autonomous University of Barcelona, who also attended the conference.

Ignacio Moreno talks about Photonics at the XVII IEEE Spanish Student Branch Meeting



Ignacio Moreno gave the invited talk entitled “Photonic Technologies: Essential told for current engineering”, at the XVII IEEE Spanish Student Branch Meeting, held in UMH – Elche. This meeting is organized by the IEEE Student Branchs in Spain, and this year it has been organized by the UMH IEEE Student Branch in April 7th to 10th.

During his presentation, Ignacio talked about all the possibilities that Optics & Photonics offer in the different areas of modern engineering, from fiber optics in communications, lasers of industrial applications, LEDs sources for lighting, or biomedical optical applications.

The picture shows Ignacio with Jonatan Ramón, the president of the UMH Branch, at the end of the talk, with a gift given to the speaker.

Pascuala Garcia and Maria del Mar Sanchez with Jocelyn Bell at the University of Valencia

JBellPascuala Garcia and Maria del Mar Sanchez met Jocelyn Bell at the Faculty of Physics of the University of Valencia.

Dr. Bell, renown astrophysicist famous for the discovery of pulsars, was invited to Valencia to give a conference within the cycle of seminars of the Faculty of Physics. Dr. Bell was one of the women selected for the Exhibition Women in Light Science and Light Technology. This exhibition coordinated by Pascuala García, and with the participation of María del Mar Sánchez, has been developed by members of the Group of Women in Physics of RSEF –  Real Sociedad Española de Física, and from SEDOPTICA – Sociedad Española de Óptica.

The exhibition was inaugurated in September 2015 at the SEDOPTICA meeting XI Reunión Nacional de Óptica, held in Salamanca, and it has been exhibited at many different locations, including the University of Valencia, and the University Miguel Hernandez, where it can now be visited at the hall of the building Arenales, until April 11th, 2016.
