PhD Thesis: Artur Hermans, Dunne filmen van tweede-orde-niet-lineaire optische materialen verwerkt bij lage temperaturen voor geintegreerde fotonische schakelingen in siliciumnitride, Low-Temperature Processed Thin Films of Second-Order Nonlinear Optical Materials for Silicon Nitride Photonic Integrated Circuits, 10/2019
Artur Hermans was born in Halle, Belgium in 1991. He received a BSc degree in Engineering (Electronics and information technology) from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in 2012. Afterwards, he entered the European MSc in Photonics program during which he spent a semester at Ghent University, the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the University of St Andrews and the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL). At EPFL, he conducted his master's thesis research in the group of Professor T. J. Kippenberg. In 2014, he joined the Photonics Research group to work on low-temperature processed thin films of second-order nonlinear optical materials for silicon nitride photonic integrated circuits, under supervision of Professor R. Baets and Professor S. Clemmen. For this work he was awarded a PhD degree in 2019. Currently, he is working as a postdoc in the Photonics Research Group on III-V-on-SiN mode-locked lasers.
