CePOF-Unicamp is a multidisciplinary center for research, technology transfer, and education and dissemination of optics and photonics. The center gathers researchers from the Physics Institute, Electrical and Computing Engineering School, Chemistry Institute, Biology Institute, and School of Medical Sciences at the State University of Campinas (Unicamp), the Energetic and Nuclear Research Institute (IPEN), and the Special Laboratory for Lasers in Dentistry (LEO, University of São Paulo). The center congregates expertise in optical fibers, glass materials, nonlinear fiber optics, femtosecond physics, optical metrology, quantum optics, waveguide modeling, and optical communication systems and devices. CePOF missions are: To develop fundamental and applied research, integrating cross-disciplinary expertise to explore advanced applications of optics and photonics; To disseminate optics and photonics to the general public, thus promoting science at all levels of education; To promote innovation in the industry through technology transfer, small business incubation, and continued education programs. CePOF organizes R&D activities into well-defined projects that require the contributions from groups with complementary expertise. This teamwork and leadership development atmosphere stimulates our young researchers to go deeper into the theoretical details and measurement techniques that are necessary for technological developments. The center also encourages students and post-docs to travel abroad, thus strengthening external collaborations, bringing back new variants for research, and assimilating state-of-the-art methods and techniques.
