Federico Rivas presents his PREP research project

Federico Rivas, an undergraduate student from Valencia College working in the LUMAS group through the UCF-Valencia PREP (Physics Research Exchange Program), presented his research project “PCGPA & its Applications to Frequency-Resolved Optical Gating” at the program’s final symposium today. Federico developed a LabVIEW-based PCPGA code and used it to reconstruct few-cycle pulses from FROG traces generated in the lab. We were happy to have Federico in the lab this summer, and wish him luck as he continues his studies in the Department of Physics at the University of Florida this fall!
