Measurement Techniques for Nonlinear Absorbing Materials: Femtosecond to Nanosecond Characterization()
Speaker：Dr. Scott Webster, University of Central Florida, Senior Research Scientist, Ph.D. from Wake Forest University
Scott Webster, Ph.D. received his doctorate in physics from Wake Forest University in 2003 investigating the “Optical Characterization of Nanostructured Materials”. From 2004 to present, he has worked at CREOL, the College of Optics and Photonics at the University of Central Florida as a Senior Research Scientist. He has published 62 refereed journal publications, 81 refereed conference proceedings and extended abstracts, presented 37 talks, lectures, and colloquia, has contributed to more than 90 other presentations, and has more than 1600 citations. As of 2015, he has an h-index of 25.
For roughly the last 10 years he has multitasked multiple programs in the linear and nonlinear characterization of organics, semiconductors, gasses, and plasmonic nanostructures in the femtosecond to nanosecond time regime and from the ultraviolet to the infrared spectral regime. His specialty has been the linear and nonlinear characterization of Polymethine and Polymethine-like molecules for nonlinear absorption applications such as optical limiting.
