Rui Silva awarded MSc in Physics Engineering

rui-silva
Congratulations to Rui Oliveira e Silva for successfully defend his MSc thesis in Physics Engineering! In his thesis entitled “Design of optical spectrometers with RamSERS project”, Rui evaluates the parameters for the design of two Raman spectrometers , with the goal of achieving very competitive specifications using off-the-shelf optical elements. The design is verified by paraxial analysis and Zemax. The ultimate goal of the project is to develop… Read more
