Ulrike Woggon

We will have the opportunity of having a coffee with her.
Ulrike Woggon studied Physics at the Friedrich-Schiller University Jena and the Humboldt-University in Berlin, Germany. In 1985 she received her PhD in Experimental Physics from the Humboldt-University in Berlin. During this time, her two sons were born in 1980 and 1985. In 1992 she was awarded with a grant for habilitation by the German National Science Foundation (DFG) and went to the group of Prof. Klingshirn were she conducted research on semiconductor quantum dots using various methods of ultrafast laser spectroscopy and nonlinear optics. In 1995 she got the habilitation from the University of Kaiserslautern with a thesis on "Optical Properties of Semiconductor Quantum Dots" which has been published as a monograph in Springer Tracts in Modern Physics in 1996. From 1993 to 1997 she was in charge of a research group on optical spectroscopy of II-VI quantum dots at the Institute of Applied Physics at the University of Karlsruhe. In 1997 she became a full-time Professor at the Department of Physics in Dortmund, heading a group of about 10 members working on problems of quantum coherence in semiconductor nanostructures, photonic structures and microsphere cavities, single-dot spectroscopy at nanocrystals and quantum dots and quantum-dot based devices.

Since 2008 she is the ICO Secretary General, serving until 2014; a part of her duties is to serve as the editor of the ICO Newsletter. In 2011 she received an Honorary Doctorate from the Armenian State Pedagogical University after Kachatur Abovyan.

Fernando Pardo 

He will explain some concepts about patents in science on Friday 29th.

BSc degree in Physics from the University of Santiago de Compostela (USC) and PhD in Physics from USC. During the period 1999-2005 he worked in the Department of Electronics and Computer Science at USC, gaining research experience in the field of digital medical image processing and IC design, with over 15 articles published in scientific journals and conferences. Professor at the University of Valladolid, Department of Electronics Technology, during the period 2006-10, during which he participated in teaching innovation projects. In August 2011 he joined the technology transfer office of the USC where he manages industrial-intellectual property of the USC.

See you in Santiago!
