TecnOPTO participates at the II Jornada La Ciencia tiene Nombre de Mujer


Mujer1Mujer2The II Jornada La Ciencia tiene Nombre de Mujer was held on February 26th at UMH to celebrate the International Day of Woman and Girl in Science. The purpose of this second edition is to attract female students to Engineering degrees. Recognized female Engineering professionals delivered outreach talks to an audience of about 200 high-school students. Prof. Carmen Vázquez, who talked about Photonics applications in engineering, and Dr. Sirona Valdueza, former student of TecnOPTO, were among the speakers.

After that, the attendees could experience hands-on engineering through several experimental stands, including “Velocity  speed detection using Doppler effect” and “Voice transmission by laser”, among others.

The members of TecnOPTO, María del Mar Sánchez and Julia Arias, helped organized this activity in collaboration with Unidad de Igualdad of UMH, and TecnOPTO PhD student  Aaron Cofré gave a stand on photonics.

More details on the program can be found here.

Marcos Maestre presents his Final Degree Project on a system to control light pulses and measure slow and fast light


IMG_7139On Friday July 7th, Marcos Maestre, student of Telecommunications Engineering, has defended his Final Degree Project entitled “Control de Pulsos Ópticos en Fibra y Medida de Efectos de Luz Lenta y Luz Rápida en Interferómetros“.

In this work, an instrumental system and its control software has been developed in order to characterize electro-optical modulators and polarization interferometers based on birefringent fibers. Using this setup slow and fast light (SFL) effects have been demonstrated for optical pulses centered at 1550 nm.

The project, which has been supervised by Julia Arias and María del Mar Sánchez-López, has obtained the maximum qualification, with honours.

A related communication will be presented at OPTOEL2017 – the Spanish Meeting on Optoelectronics.
