Institut de Ciències Fotòniques

The Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Barcelona Tech (UPC) is a public institution dedicated to higher education and research, specialised in the fields of engineering, architecture and science.


The activity that goes on at UPC campuses and schools has made the University a benchmark institution. The University harnesses the potential of basic and applied research, and transfers technology and knowledge to society. These actions make the UPC—in partnership with the productive fabric—an agent and driver of economic and social change.


Our researchers are working in laboratories and research centres to increase scientific production, to promote its social value through the transfer of resultsto continue to lead international projects of excellence on our own initiative or in collaboration with research centres and universities around the world.

    Atomic and optical physics are two fields closely connected by a shared range of energy scales, and the interactions between them. Atoms represent the most fundamental components of matter, and interactions with electromagnetic ...
  • Sánchez, Aurelien (Date of defense: 25-07-2022)
    Since discovering wave-particle duality, science has changed our perception of light and matter, especially at the subatomic level. Thanks to such discoveries, we have been able to develop and expand our scientific knowledge ...
  • Bernardello, Matteo (Date of defense: 14-06-2022)
    The observation of biological processes in their native environments is of critical importance for life science. While substantial information can be derived from the examination of in-vitro biological samples, in-vivo ...
  • Liu, Xinyao (Date of defense: 27-07-2022)
    One of the significant challenges of modern science is to track and image chemical reactions as they occur. The molecular movies, the precise spatiotemporal tracking of changes in their molecular dynamics, will provide a ...
  • Almeida, Jessica Oliveira de (Date of defense: 28-07-2022)
    Quantum optics experiments are currently the most advanced techniques to under- stand, verify and simulate quantum phenomena. However, to access all the perfor- mance available in quantum states of light, one needs to ...
