Jaime earned his Ph.D. from the University of Alabama in Huntsville in Optical Science and Engineering. His research was in single air interface bends and waveguide microcantilevers. After two years as a process engineer, and three years as a Postdoctoral researcher in the Nanophotonics group, Jaime is now research associate in the Lipson Nanophotonics Group.
Raphael received the B. Eng. (2007) and Ph.D. (2012) degrees in engineering physics from Polytechnique Montreal (Montreal, QC, Canada). In 2007, he was an engineering intern with Dalsa Semiconductor (Bromont, QC, Canada), before joinging the Microphotonics Labororatory (Polytechnique Montreal) in 2008 for his graduate studies. He joined the Cornell Nanophotonics Group as a postdoctoral associate in 2013. His research interests include optical microelectromechanical systems, optical sensor, mid-infrared integrated optics, thermal emitters, and nanoscale thermal transport.
Felippe received his Bachelor degree in Physics (2006) from University of Brasilia (UnB) and both the M.Sc. (2009) and PhD (2013) in Physics from the University of São Paulo (USP) in Brazil, working with quantum optics and quantum information with continuous variable using optical parametric oscillators. He also spent five months of his PhD at the University of Paris VI in France working with quantum optics. He also worked as a postdoctoral associate from 2013 to the middle of 2014 at University of Campinas (Unicamp). He joined the Cornell Nanophotonics Group as a post-doctoral associate in the middle of 2014 and his research interests include quantum optics, quantum information science, optomechanical resonators and quantum measurement. His other interests includes movies,reading, especially literature and history, hiking and practicing sports in general.
