Multiwave co-organizes, sponsors and participates in the 1st Canterbury Workshop on Optical Coherent Tomography and Adaptive Optics, held at the University of Kent, UK.
In that workshop, António Lobo Ribeiro presented the invited talk “Optical Fiber Sources for Measurement and Imaging”. Multiwave also presented 3 posters: (1) “Development and optimization of of fiber optic broadband sources at 1um for OCT”, by Irina Trifanov, (2) “En-face OCT system at 1060 nm”, by Liviu Neagu, and (3) "Improvement of the mode quality in large mode area (LMA) fibers”, by Stephan Gruensteidl.
Irina, Liviu and Stephan are graduate students carrying out their Ph.D. work at Multiwave, in collaboration with the University of Kent, UK (Irina and Liviu) and the University of Galway, Ireland (Stephan).
The theoretical and experimental work reported used Multiwave’s broadband sources at 1 um, as well as pulsed fiber lasers (MOPA) also at 1060 nm.
The Workshop was organized as part of the Project HIRESOMI within the European Marie Curie framework. This Project involves the Universities of Kent (UK), Galway (Ireland) and Porto (Portugal), the companies Imagine Eyes (France) and Multiwave (Portugal).
