Received his B.S. in Physics from Universidade Estadual de Campinas, Brazil, in 2003, and his Ph.D. degree in Physics from the same university in 2008. He was a postdoctoral scholar in the Department of Applied Physics at Caltech, USA, from 2008 to 2011. In 2011, he joined the faculty of Applied Physics Department at Universidade Estadual de Campinas as an Associated Professor. He is member of Brazilian Physics Society, Brazilian Photonics Society and Optical Society of America. His main research topics includes optics and photonics at micro- and nano-scale, optical nonlinear interaction and optomechanics, and nanostructured systems. (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
Controlling the properties of micro- and nano-optical, and mechanical systems, has recently become possible following advances in nanofabrication techniques. This is the case of optical micro-cavity, micro-lasers, and optomechanical systems to cite a few. In this proposal we will investigate micro-and nano-optical devices with special attention to optomechanical systems. Here the strong...
In this project we propose the study of nonlinear effects in optical microcavities made of semiconductor materials. The student will understand the power dependent mechanisms leading to absorption and dispersion in the optical modes of these devices. Specifically, the contributions of nonlinear effects such as two-photon absorption, free-carrier absorption, Kerr effect, free-carrier and...
We propose the study and development of optomechanical microcavities in distinct materials and geometries. Several systems will be explored, such that the piezoeletricity and the photoelasticity can be used to improve the optomechanical coupling. We aim to achieve the induced strong coupling regime, where non-classical phenomena can be observed.
We will study the nonlinear effects caused by electromagnetic waves confined in optical micro cavities. The cavities will be fabricated by optical lithography processes in silica substrates, which present third-order nonlinear optical susceptibility. We will study the relationship between the infrared optical modes of these cavities and the third harmonic generation.

We propose the study, fabrication and characterization of integrated single-phonon waveguides. Generation and read-out of phonons will be performed using single photons in optomechanical microcavities coupled to the waveguides.
