My responsabilities:

As Visiting Research Engineer in the group of Professor Coldren, I worked on the modeling of vertical cavity semiconductor optical amplifiers (VCSOAs). This type of device has the same structure as a VCSEL (Vertical cavity surface emitting laser), but it is used as an optical amplifier.

Main achievements:

  • Cleared up an apparent discrepancy between previous modeling efforts reported by the scientific literature
  • Published these results in peer reviewed scientific journals and presented them at the International conference of the IEEE Lasers and Electro- Optics Society, 2001, in San Diego USA
