Franciele Renata Henrique

B.Sc. in Physics from the Federal University of Paraná (2014) and M.Sc. in Physics from the University of São Paulo (2016). Currently, Franciele is a Ph.D. candidate in Physics at the University of São Paulo.

Research areas

    • Advanced laser processing of materials
    • Nonlinear Optics
    • Micro/Nano-Photonic Devices

During undergrad school, she worked with the synthesis of noble and transition metal nanoparticles by laser ablation in solution as well as their structural and optical characterization. In her master’s studies, she worked with the production of optically active polymeric microstructures by the two-photon polymerization technique and their optical connection through tapered fibers with the aim to produce light sources at microscale that could be incorporated to photonic devices. During her Ph.D., she has been working with the nonlinear characterization (third-order nonlinearities) by the Dispersive-scan technique of microstructures produced by ultrashort laser pulses, mainly waveguides in special glasses. From November 2019, she did an 11-month research internship abroad at the Optical Nanomaterial Group - ETH Zürich, where she worked with the fabrication and characterization of polymeric photonic devices containing electro-optic chromophores.
