Rebecca joined the CDT in September 2018, having previously completed a B.A. Mod. in Nanoscience, Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials at Trinity College Dublin.

For her University of Glasgow Semester 1 Mini Project, Rebecca is working with Professor Marc Sorel on:

Characterisation of integrated photonic chips 

The aim of the project is to evaluate the performance of photonic circuits integrating diverse components such as optical waveguides, microring resonators and semiconductor lasers. Specifically, the student will learn how to design photonic integrated devices, couple light into a waveguide, and measure and analyse the optical transfer function of a photonic circuit under different biasing conditions. The student will be assisted by an experienced post-doctoral researcher who will provide training in device simulation and characterisation.
