  • Domínguez Juárez, Jorge Luís (Date of defense: 22-07-2014)
    In recent years, it has been proposed that circular microresonators may become an important element in the core of many photonic devices. The high Q-factors seen in fused silica micro-spheres and micro-toroids for light ...
  • León Montiel, Roberto de Jesús (Date of defense: 30-09-2014)
    For many years, the fields of quantum optics and biology have rarely shared a common path. In quantum optics, most of the concepts and techniques developed over the years stand for systems where only a few degrees of freedom ...
  • Walasik, Wictor (Date of defense: 13-10-2014)
    In this PhD thesis, we study properties of stationary transverse magnetic polarized waves in structures built of a Kerr-type nonlinear dielectric layer, metal and linear dielectric layers. Although these waves, called here ...
  • Farzam, Parisa (Date of defense: 14-10-2014)
    Noninvasive measurement of hemodynamics at the microvascular level may have a great impact on oncology in clinics for diagnosis, therapy planning and monitoring, and, in preclinical studies. To this end, diffuse optics is ...
  • Svozilík, Jiŕí (Date of defense: 17-10-2014)
    Non-classical correlations, usually referred as entanglement, are ones of the most studied and discussed features of Quantum Mechanics, since the initial introduction of the concept in the decade of 1930s. Even nowadays, ...
  • Martínez Montblanch, Luis (Date of defense: 31-10-2014)
    Durante las últimas décadas, la energía solar fotovoltaica se ha convertido en una tecnología de creciente importancia para satisfacer las necesidades energéticas actuales sin sacrificar las futuras generaciones. Las células ...
  • Mariano Juste, Marina (Date of defense: 31-10-2014)
    Considering that the most abundant renewable energy source is the Sun, photovoltaic technology possesses one of the highest potentials to provide environmental benign and sustainable energy worldwide. Currently, most of ...
  • Badarla, Venkata Ramaiah (Date of defense: 31-10-2014)
    In this thesis, we have demonstrated various ultrafast optical parametric oscillators (OPOs) based on different nonlinear media. The thesis consists of OPO systems, novel techniques, designs, and concepts that has facilitated ...
  • Ebling, Ulrich (Date of defense: 03-11-2014)
    Ultracold atomic gases have established themselves as quantum systems, which are clean and offer a high degree of control over crucial parameters. They are well isolated from their environment and thus offer the possibility ...
  • Grün, Alexander (Date of defense: 07-11-2014)
    In this thesis I investigate two methods for generating ultrashort laser pulses in spectral regions which are ordinarily difficult to achieve by the existing techniques. These pulses are specially attractive in the study ...
  • Zamora, Alejandro (Date of defense: 15-12-2014)
    The study of ultracold atoms constitutes one of the hottest areas of atomic, molecular, and optical physics and quantum optics. The experimental and theoretical achievements in the last three decades in the control and ...
  • Valdés Escobar, Claudia Patricia (Date of defense: 15-12-2014)
    Blood flow and its regulation, as well as hemodynamics in general, are important for the health of tissues and hence the measurement of these quantities has many applications in research and clinical environments. Various ...
  • Icaza Astiz, Yannik Alan de (Date of defense: 27-01-2015)
    To measure quantum features in a classical world constrains us to extend the classical technology to the limit, inventing and discovering new schemes to use the classical devices, while reducing and filtering the sources ...
  • Blanco Núñez, Igor D. (Date of defense: 31-01-2015)
    The study of the brain using diffuse optical methods has progressed rapidly in the recent years. The possibility of studying the cerebral microvasculature in addition to the portability and low cost of these devices, opens ...
  • García de Arquer, Francisco Pelayo (Date of defense: 18-02-2015)
    The detection of light is of central importance in both fundamental science and applied technology. Photodetectors, which aim at transducing optical stimulus into measurable electrical signals, are ubiquitous to modern ...
  • Rosales Guzmán, Carmelo G. (Date of defense: 22-05-2015)
    Structured light beams, this is, beams whose phase changes from point to point in the transverse plane, provides with an alternative tool to search for new applications, or simply to expand the capabilities of current ...
  • Tura i Brugués, Jordi (Date of defense: 20-07-2015)
    Entanglement and nonlocal correlations constitute two fundamental resources for quantum information processing, as they allow for novel tasks that are otherwise impossible in a classical scenario. However, their elusive ...
  • Torre Carazo, Gonzalo de la (Date of defense: 23-09-2015)
    Physics has two main ambitions: to predict and to understand. Indeed, physics aims for the prediction of all natural phenomena. Prediction entails modeling the correlation between an action, the input, and what is subsequently ...
  • Torreño Piña, Juan Andrés (Date of defense: 02-10-2015)
