Del Mar Photonics featured customer: Dr Jeremy Bolger
Bio: Jeremy Bolger received the BSc. Hons. (1st) degree from the University of Western Australia in 1982. He worked in applied mining research for Group Special Equipment, CRA, Melbourne for two years before moving to the UK to take up a British Council Commonwealth Scholarships and Fellowships Plan PhD scholarship at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh. He received his PhD in 1992 for a comprehensive investigation of ultrafast visible-wavelength nonlinearities in wide-gap II-VI semiconductors and in crystalline polymers.
Subsequent to his PhD studies, Dr. Bolger worked at the Iowa Advanced Technology Laboratories, University of Iowa, USA on ultrafast coherent dephasing nonlinearities in GaAs multiple-quantum wells (MQWs) at cryogenic temperatures. He devised and demonstrated a pioneering experiment in time- and polarization-resolved coherent four-wave mixing on 100 fs timescales, which demonstrated the influence of biexciton states in the optical properties of MQWs at much higher temperatures than previously thought. After working in industrial laboratories in defence and mining in Australia for four years Dr. Bolger moved into the fibre-optic component development industry in 2000, working for Nortel Networks (Photonic) and then JDS Uniphase, where he designed and prototyped components used in ultra-high speed long-haul transmission networks, including micro-optic circulators and dispersion-compensating gratings. He was responsible for the design and demonstration of the world’s smallest optical circulator, with length only 27 mm, which was subsequently commercialised to a mass-production stage.
He is currently the Laboratory Manager at the new Photonics and Optical Physics Laboratory at the University of Sydney (POPLUS), a new facility funded by CUDOS. Dr. Bolger is a member of the Optical Society of America.
