Pascuala García, María del Mar Sánchez and David Marco attend the Bienal de Física by RSEF


BienalPascuala García, María del Mar Sánchez, and David Marco attended the Bienal de Física, the biannual Spanish meeting of Physics, organized in Zaragoza by the Spanish Royal Physics Society(RSEF) (link)

David presented the poster entitled «Parallel generation of vortex beams with a 2D optical triplicator geometric phase design» in the Symposium of Quantum Optics (see here the related publication). And Pascuala presented the flash talk entitled «Highly efficient generation of arbitrary vector beams» in the Symposium of Applied Photonics (see here the related publication).

Pascuala also organized and chaired the session of Women in Physics, where María del Mar gave a talk on the activity promoting women in STEM entitled «Jornadas La Ciencia tiene nombre de Mujer de la Universidad Miguel Hernández».

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!

Santiago López presents his Final Degree Project for Telecommunications Degree on a system to generate phase-only holograms with new high resolution displays


SantiagoOn July 9th, 2018, Santiago López, student of the Grade of Telecommunications Engineering, defended his final degree project entitled Caracterización de moduladores de cristal líquido para la generación de hologramas de fase y su optimización.

In this work, Santiago developed a characterization of the phase properties of some new displays acquired at the TecnOPTO Lab, and developed new methods and designs to generate phase-only holograms with them.

The project, supervised by Ignacio Moreno, received the maximum qualification
