Photonics Research Labs (PRL)


My research career at photonics technologies started at 1993 when joined the Optical Communication Group as researcher and the Communication Department at Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) as lecturer and PhD student. From 1994 to 1998 I was a lecturer at the Telecommunications Engineering Faculty and I became an Associate Professor in 1999. I obtained a PhD in Electrical Engineering and Telecommunications by the Universitat Politècnica de València, Spain in 1996. The topic of my Thesis was “Redes de Difracción sobre Fibra Óptica para Procesado de Señales Fotónicas”. I am co-author of more than 225 papers in journals and international conferences in the fields of Optical Delay Line Filters, Fiber Bragg Gratings, Microwave Photonics, WDM and SCM lightwave systems, Optical Fiber Sensors, Silicon Nitride integrated devices for telecom and sensing, and advanced characterization techniques as Optical Frequency Domain Reflectrometry. I have been leader/co researcher (IP) of 3 national projects, related with Metro and Access optical Networks (TEL1999-0437 from 31/12/99 to 31/12/02), and Optical Code Division Multiple Access networks and devices (OCDMA), (TEC2004-04754-01/TCM from 13/12/04 to 13/12/07 and TEC2009-12169 from 01/01/2010 to 31/6/2013), and co-IP in 3 national projects related with Photonic Integrated Technology, Photonic Integrated Filters for Enhanced Signal Processing (TEC2013-42332-P), Silicon Nitride integrated Spectrometers (TEC2016-80385-P) and Plataforma Hibrida Nitruro de Silicio para Circuitos Ópticos Integrados (PID2019-110877GB-I00). I have been leader also of different work packages in european projects as IST-LABELS (Ligthwave Architectures for the processing of Broadband Electronics Signals), or IST-GLAMOROUS (Glass-based modulators, Routers and Switches). In the last two years I have participated in a research and development contract with Huawei Tech. Ltc, and an European project MSCA-ITN-2018-ETN/Nº 812818. Of special mention is the activity in the development of a technology platform at the UPV with capabilities to manufacture passive optical substrates and components based on Silicon Nitride / Silica with the following infrastructure financing: Polo tecnológico UPVfab. GVA/IDIFEDER/2020/028 (2020-2021), MICRO-FABRICACIÓN PARA FOTÓNICA, ELECTRÓNICA Y QUÍMICA” Generalitat Valenciana (2018-2020) GVA/IDIFEDER18/41
