Brief description of the Research Team / Research Group / Department
Interdisciplinary Group of Computational Optics (GICO-UCM) is a consolidated research group of Complutense University of Madrid (Spain). It is composed by 3 permanent professors, an associated professor, Emeritus professor and two PhD students. Our main research lines comprise the design, generation and characterization of optical beams and pulses; all optical manipulation of micro/nano particles and 3D/4D quantitative microscopy imaging. In particular, our results related to light-driven transport of particles has been highlighted as one of the most exciting optics research over the past 12 months by Optics & Photonics News.The group regularly receives funding through the National Competitive Grants Programme. GICO-UCM manages its own facilities that allows carrying out experimental research on an independent basis. It also collaborates with other UCM groups working in X-ray imaging and ultrafast optics and with researchers from Samara Branch Lebedev Physical Institute, Russia and Universidad Nacional de La Plata, Argentina. The last 3 PhD thesis supervised by the group members received a best thesis award. One of them was recognized as Outstanding PhD Research by Springer. During last 7 years 3 PhD students and 2 postdocs from different countries have been trained in our group. In this period the group has produced two patents and published more than 50 papers, 10 book chapters, three electronic books for graduate students and edited a scientific book.
