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!

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.
