Professor Ksenia Dolgaleva

GROUP LEADER

My name is Ksenia Dolgaleva; I am an Associate Professor at the University of Ottawa and a Tier 2 Canada Research Chair in Integrated Photonics. My primary affiliation is with the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Faculty of Engineering. Because I studied to become a physicist, I am also cross-appointed with the Department of Physics, Faculty of Science.

Dr. Daniel Espinosa

POSTDOCTORAL RESEARCHER

I am a postdoctoral fellow in the group since January/2018. My research interests are related to experimental nonlinear optics, and the characterization of integrated photonics devices allows me to study the nonlinear optical properties of nanostructured materials. My current research projects are based on the four-wave mixing, nonlinear transmission, and z-scan techniques in III-V semiconductors, either in bulk or waveguiding materials.

Md Saad Bin Alam

PHD CANDIDATE

M. Saad Bin-Alam is pursuing his PhD in Electrical Engineering under the joint supervision of Prof. Ksenia Dolgaleva and Prof. Robert W. Boyd. Throughout his graduate studies, Saad demonstrates his expertise in designing and characterization of the artificial nanophotonic devices for various applications. Saad's most notable research contribution is the development of plasmonic nanostructured metasurfaces with record high-Q resonances, which has drawn a large media attention. Currently Saad is working on implementing his high-Q metasurface in advanced nonlinear and quantum optical processes such as- entangled photon-pair generation via spontaneous parametric down-conversion (SPDC), ultrafast nonlinear modulation for flat optical applications, and absorption enhancement inside the photodetector quantum-dot absorbers.
