DC10 – Development of a fs-laser for multiphoton microscopy

About John

John is an electrical engineer who embarked on the academic journey at the esteemed University of Costa Rica, progressing from a bachelor’s (2013-2017), through Licenciate (2018-2019) to a master’s degree finish in 2023. Studies focused on electronics, photonics devices and light sources accoupling with fibre optics. He possesses a multifaceted background, bridging classical electrical engineering with cutting-edge photonics research. On one hand, he excels in electrical buildings design, on the other hand, he’s a photonics scientist, having developed sources such as supercontinuum and LED sources tailored for bio applications. Having served as a professor of electronics for a duration of five years, he actively engaged in various congresses and photonics schools, notably including the IPN-BIO and RIAO-Optilas events in Costa Rica. He is a researcher on FYLA LASER s.l company, a member of the CONcISE project in Valencia, Spain. There, he is specialising in laser fabrication, design, development, and implementation of advanced laser-based solutions.

“My journey is a testament to the power of passion and perseverance. With my academic effort, practical experience, and relentless pursuit of success, I can get involved in the CONcISE project, particularly with a project tailor-made for me. As I look towards the future, I remain committed to pushing the boundaries of what is possible with all my project partners, harnessing the power of light to create a brighter world for generations to come.” – John Rosses (DC10).

About the research programme

John’s PhD programme is dedicated to the development of few-cycle, all-fiber temporally coherent supercontinuum lasers that operate in the mid-infrared (mid-IR) wavelength range, targeting advances in laser technology. Furthermore, the programme aims to design and integrate these advances into a complete, functional system for multiphoton microscopy, enhancing imaging capabilities. Additionally, John’s research will include the design and implementation of strategies for industrialisation and the development of a business model, aiming to facilitate the market uptake of this innovative commercial system, bridging the gap between cutting-edge optical research and practical, commercial applications. John is carrying out his research at FYLA. Three secondments are planned throughout his employment.
