Supporting Inspiring Science and Technology

Universal Journal of Lasers, Optics, Photonics & Sensors

  • I would like to thank you first for this nice invitation at the conference LOPS 2021. The conference was very interesting, well organized and very inspiring for interaction and collaborations. I was impressed by the organization I found very efficient and flexible. The conference gave me the opportunity to present my research to a global audience creating an excellent synergy. Experience we have to do it again every year for sure! Looking forward to see you next year!

Editor Biography

Mário F. S. Ferreira

University of Aveiro Univ de Aveiro, Dept. of Physics Campus Santiago, Portugal


Mário F. S. Ferreira graduated in Physics from the University of Porto, Portugal,  and received the Ph.D. degree in Physics in 1992 from the University of Aveiro, Portugal, where he is now a Professor at the Physics Department. Between 1990 and 1991 he was at the University of Essex, UK, performing experimental work on external cavity semiconductor lasers and nonlinear optical fiber amplifiers. His research interests have been concerned with the modeling and characterization of multi-section semiconductor lasers for coherent systems, quantum well lasers, optical fiber amplifiers and lasers, soliton propagation, polarization and nonlinear effects in optical fibers. He is actually the leader of the Optics and Optoelectronics Group of the I3N – Institute of Nanostructures, Nanomodelling and Nanofabrication. He has written about 400 scientific journal and conference publications, and several books, namely: “Optics and Photonics” (Lidel, 2003, in Portuguese), “Topics of Mathematical Physics” (Editora Ciência Moderna, 2018, Brazil, in Portuguese), “Optical Fibers: Technology, Communications and recent Advances” (Ed., NOVA Science Publishers, 2017), “Advances in Optoelectronic Technology and Industry Development” (CRC Press, 2019), “Optical Signal Processing in Highly Nonlinear Fibers” (CRC Press, 2020),  and “Nonlinear Effects in Optical Fibers” (John Wiley & Sons, OSA, 2011) . He was the Guest Editor of two Special Issues of “Fiber and Integrated Optics” (Taylor & Francis): “Fiber Optics in Portugal” (2005) and “Nonlinear Fiber Optics” (2015), and a Special Issue of “Fibers” (MDPI): “Optical Fiber Communications” (2018). Actually, he is Guest Editor of a Special Issue Fiber and Integrated Optics  on “Quantum Communications” and another of “Applied Optics” and “Optics Express” (OSA) on “Optical Sensors and Sensing 2019”

He is a Senior Member and a Travelling Lecturer of both of the Optical Society of America (OSA) and SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering, He served in various committees of  OSA and of SPIE, as well as in the organizing and scientific committees of various international conferences. Actually, he serves also as an Associate Editor or as an Advisor Board Member of several international journals in the area of optics and photonics.
