Ir. Tom Reep  (Doctoral Researcher)

This person is working in this group since 2021.
Affiliation: Ghent University - IMEC
Department of Information Technology
Address: Technologiepark-Zwijnaarde 126
9052 Ghent
Office: iGent, Office 130.006
LinkedIn: tom-reep-7b542772
Research Area: Graphene based mode-locked lasers
Promotors: Bart Kuyken and Dries Van Thourhout
Tom Reep received his BSc and MSc in Electrical engineering at Eindhoven university of technology (TUe) in 2019 and 2021 respectively. During his master thesis he looked into widely tunable lasers for OCT on the InP platform.

Currently he is working on integrating graphene modulators into integrated mode-locked lasers using saturable absorption effects of 2D materials. Furthermore he is working on transfer-printing of amplifiers and III/V saturable absorbers on SiN and the SOI platform for heterogenous (mode-locked) laser applications.
