Dr. Aidan Baker-Murray

PhD Researcher



Currently: Postdoctoral Fellow in Vincent Tabard-Cossa's group at the University of Ottawa (here)

Research

My research primarily focuses on graphene, its nonlinear optical properties and its potential uses as a mode-locker for ultrafast pulsed lasers, with the intent of producing a 2um pulsed laser.

While this is the main goal of my project, I have also been experimenting with other pseudo-2D materials, such as Boron Nitride, Molybdenum Disulphide, etc., at both a wavelength of 2um and within the visible range.
