LinkedIn: max-kiewiet
Research Area: Mode-Locked Lasers at Visible Wavelengths
Promotors: Bart Kuyken and Kasper Van Gasse
Max Kiewiet received his MSc degree in Applied Physics at the University of Twente in The Netherlands. During his master, he did a research internship at the University of Sydney, working on pulse storage using Stimulated Brillouin Scattering. His master thesis was centred around Brillouin lasing on a SiN platform. Since September 2021, he works on Mode-Locked Lasing at visible wavelengths using Transfer Printing at the Photonics Research Group.
