Cleber Renato Mendonça

Full Professor
Photonics Group Head


PhD in Physics (2000 - USP Brazil)
Postdoc at College of Optics and Photonics (2001 - CREOL USA)
Postdoc at Harvard University (2005-2007 USA)

Research areas

    • Nonlinear optics
    • Ultrashort laser pulses
    • Femtosecond laser microfabrication
    • Coherent control of light matter interaction

Dr. Mendonca´s research is aimed at the study of linear and nonlinear optical properties of organic materials. Ultrafast pulses are employed to investigate the nonlinear refraction and absorption spectrum and dynamics. Coherent control metods are also used to enhance optical nonlinearities and optmize laser pulses.
