7th IEEE Women in Photonics event 2023

#optics #photonics #annual #symposium #integrated #bio-photonics #nonlinear #optical #benelux #society #ips-bnl #WIE

The "IEEE Women in Photonics" event is organized at the same venue between 16h15 and 17h30 in Gent University in Gent.

It is a free event, but registration is required via e-mail. You can contact prof. Sonia Garcia Blanco (s.m.garciablanco@utwente.nl) by the 22nd of November.


This year Prof. Rachel Oliver, from University of Cambridge, UK, will share her career path and then have an inspirational discussion with the attendees concerning career, work-life balance, how to achieve your goals, obstacles that one might need to watch out for or overcome along the way…..

prof. Nathalie Picque of Max Planck Institute, Garching, Germany


Optical frequency combs for sensing


Nathalie Picqué is a research group leader at the Max-Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany). She was previously a tenured research scientist with the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS) at Orsay (France). She received her doctoral degree in Physics from Université Paris-Saclay (France) in 1998. Her research interests are in the areas of optics and molecular physics, more particularly in interferometry, precision spectroscopy and laser technology. Her research focuses on exploring new ideas that involve laser frequency combs and on applying these novel concepts to metrology, molecular spectroscopy, holography and chip-scale sensing. A 2019 Optica fellow, Nathalie Picqué has received several awards, including the 2007 Bronze Medal of the CNRS, the 2013 Coblentz award in Molecular Spectroscopy, the 2021 Gentner-Kastler Prize in Physics, a 2021 European Research Council Advanced Grant, the 2022 Helmholtz Prize in Metrology and the 2022 Breakthrough in Physical Sciences of the Falling-Walls Foundation.
