Samira Jastan

PhD Researcher

Samira joined the Centre for Advanced Photonics and Process Analysis (CAPPA) as a PIADS PhD student under the supervision of Dr. Liam O’ Faolain.   Samira will work on Narrow Linewidth Blue Laser Systems. This project is in collaboration between MTU, IPIC, Tyndall National Institute, University of Glasgow, and Queen’s University Belfast. This project is working with industry partner, CSTG, a laser company in Scotland.

Narrow linewidth lasers in the blue wavelength range are vital for various applications such as underwater communications, medical diagnostics and sensing areas. The high-performance spectrally pure lasers realised in this project will open up a new application area for IPIC. The aim of this project is to enhance the toolkit of on chip components available and using hybrid or heterogeneous integration to produce fully integrated stabilized lasers.

Samira received her B.Sc. in physics from the University of Tabriz, Iran. She then completed an M.Sc. in photonics at Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Science (IASBS). During her master’s degree, she was working on optical fiber sensors.
