    We demonstrate a new type of optical coherence tomography (OCT) scheme based on ideas put forward by Mandel's group in 1991, curiously the same year than the first OCT scheme was demonstrated. It involves the measurement ...
  • Hierarchical representations in machine learning and many-body quantum physics 

    Blázquez García, Raúl (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-10-27)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Over the past few years a number of proofs have emerged revealing the many connections between the methods used in quantum-many body physics and those in machine learning. In particular, much attention has been given to ...

    Master thesis
    Open Access
    In this master's thesis we study two filtering techniques, first the Faraday anomalous dispersion optical filter (FADOF) and second a monolithic Fabry-Pérot interferometer with the aim of filtering down-converted photon ...
  • Sensing of particles, micro-organisms and biomarkers using the camera of a mobile phone

    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  Université Toulouse III - Paul Sabatier
    We demonstrate a simple method to shape an incoherent light source in periodic patterns of the type of cos2n(kxx)cos2m(kyy) by using pairs of birrefringent crystals known as Savart Plates. These patterns scalable and show ...
  • Ultra short laser pulse characterization device based on disordered nonlinear crystals 

    Cubero Gamito, Guillermo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-10-27)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  Institut de Ciències Fotòniques (ICFO) / Universitat de Barcelona / Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
    In this project we build and test a compact and portable optical device for ultrashort pulse characterization. This setup allows the measurement of the pulse duration as well as its chirp parameter by using the so called ...

    Nuño Gomez, Daniel (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-09-07)
    Master thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  Institut de Ciències Fotòniques (ICFO) / Universitat de Barcelona / Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
    Extensively researched in the last years, the Microwave Photonics Technology field has a number of potential advantages including extremely wide bandwidth, very low frequency constant losses, light weight, immunity to EMI ...
  • Broad area lasers beam quality improvement using photonic crystals 

    Garre Werner, Guillermo (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-10-27)
    Master thesis
    120 months embargo
    Edge-emitting broad area semiconductor lasers (BAL) have a wide range of applications due to their high power, however, are strongly limited by their beam quality. Here, we consider a BAL with an external cavity configuration ...

  • Graphene enabled mode-locked lasers 

    Cao, Yue (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2017-08)
    Master thesis
    Restricted access - author's decision
    Covenantee:  Universiteit Gent
    In this project, it has been tried to design the model of a laser for a use related to obtaining images in the study of the migration of cells. It is intended that this serve as an option that offers an alternative that ...
