Andrea Simaz

I was born in Brescia, Italy, in 1995. In 2017 I received the B.Sc. from Università degli Studi di Brescia and in April 2020 I received the M.Sc. degree from Politecnico di Torino, both in Electronic Engineering. My M.Sc thesis project has been carried out in collaboration with Politecnico di Torino, CNR-IEIIT and LAAS CNRS under the supervision of Prof. Tibaldi Alberto, Vèronique Bardinal, Debernardi Pierluigi, Goano Michele and Bertazzi Francesco. Currently, I am a research student at Walter Schottky Institute, Munich. My research work focus on semiconductor lasers.

LD05–Optical Design Issues in Electrically Pumped Tunable Liquid-Crystal VCSELs

In this work we investigate a tunable 850nm laser based on a hybrid combination of a liquid crystal micro-cell and a half GaAs VCSEL. The target application is optical coherence tomography. The inherent tolerances of the hybrid technology, the presence of metals in the cavity and the need for a pure extraordinary mode lasing make […]
