Curriculum abreviado

Pablo Acedo received his bachelor degree on Telecommunication Engineering in 1993 from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and his Doctorate (with honors) from the Universidad Carlos III de Madrid in 2000 for his work on heterodyne two color laser interferometry for fusion plasma diagnostics. His doctoral work included the development of the first two color laser system based onn Mid-IR sources for a Stellarator Fusion Device (Stellarator TJ-II, Laboratorio Nacional de Fusión, CIEMAT, Madrid) and the first two-color Nd:YAG system for a Fusion Device (Tokamak C-Mod Plasma Science and Fusion Centre, Massachusetts Institute of Technology), the later during several doctoral visits to MIT during the years 1996-1999.

In 2002 he was appointed as Assistant Professor by Universidad Carlos III de Madrid where he continued with the development of scientific instrumentation systems for fusion plasma diagnostics and biomedical applications, leading national projects and contracts on these fields. Also, since his incorporation to the UC3M, he has been involved in research with the Optoelectronics and Laser Technology Group, participating in different national and EU funded research projects on semiconductor laser devices and photonic architectures for microwave, millimeter-wave and THz generation and processing.

Currently his research interests also include the development of multimode laser sources (Optical Frequency combs) and their applications in photonic signal synthesis and spectroscopy for fields such as bioengineering, environmental applications and non-destructive testing. He is also very active in technology transfer through R&D contracts with different companies as well as the participation on different spin-offs initiatives such as Sensroad (development of optical sensors for road condition assessment) and Luzwavelabs (hardware solutions for generation and detection in the THz range using photonic techniques).
