Patricia Loren

Patricia Loren obtained a B.Sc. in Physics from Universidade Estadual de Ponta Grossa, Brazil in 2006. She received her M.Sc. on Telecommunication from Universidade Tecnologica Federal do Parana (UTFPR), Brazil in 2008 working on ¬£Production and Characterisation of Fibre Bragg Gratings in 1300nm for CWDM Applications.” In 2012 she received her Ph.D. in Microelectronics from Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS), Brazil in 2012, working on “Silver Ion Exchange Waveguides for Plasmonic Applications.” In 2013 Patricia joined the group Photonique, Plasmonique et Optique Non-Lineaire at Institut Neel – CNRS, France, in the project “Direct Characterisation of the Dielectric Frame Rotation in Monoclinic Crystals”, under supervision of Professor Patricia Segonds. Between 2015 and 2018 Patricia had a postdoctoral position inside the group Photonic devices and Applications (DIFOTON) from Universidade Technologica Federal do Parana (UTFPR), working on Application of Fibre Bragg Gratings in the Visible Range. Patricia joined CAPPA in 2018 as a postdoctoral photonics researcher working on the WaterMon project, funded by EPA. Patricia’s research interests are optical spectroscopy, optical materials characterisation and nonlinear optics.
