Mikael Svalgaard


M.Sc. in physics from University of Copenhagen (1993) with specialty in lasers and atomic physics. Ph.D. degree 1997 from Technical University of Denmark after studies of photosensitivity in Germanium doped silica and applications for fiber Bragg gratings, waveguides and lasers. Awarded 'Talent Grant' from National Research Council (STVF) in 1998 and 2000 for optical waveguide fabrication with UV laser writing. On leave 2001-2002 to supervise industrial implementation hereof in startup company, IONAS A/S. Recipient of annual 'Outstanding Young Scientist Award' from the Danish Optical Society in 2001. Conducted research on optical wavelength standards at National Institute of Standards and Technology (USA) in 1995 and 2003-2004. Since 2002 Associate Professor in nanophotonics with responsibility for semiconductor nanofabrication and waveguide measurement techniques. Presently involved in research project aimed at investigating quantum optical phenomena in solid state systems consisting of photonic crystals and quantum dots.
