Random lasers for spectroscopy applications

Alice Boschetti


Alice Boschetti is a PhD student at LENS in Florence, Italy, working in the group of professor D. S. Wiersma. The group is interested in the optical properties of complex photonic structures, like photonic crystals and disordered materials. In particular, her PhD work focusses on the study of random lasers for spectroscopic applications. Recently, she was able to realize the experimental high resolution characterization of the transmission function of a synthetic filter using an optically pumped random laser. Alice received her master degree in Physics from the University of Florence with a thesis on quantum dots.


Well-established examples of super-resolved microscopy, as STORM, PALM and FPALM, allow to reconstruct images with higher resolution than that imposed by the diffraction limit. These methods are based on the sequential... [ view full abstract ]
