Ho Sze Phing

PhD Student

Ho Sze Phing received her B. Sc. degree in Science (Industrial Physics) from Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (Johor, Malaysia). She started her master study at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia in 2006 and graduated in 2008 with M. Sc. (Physics), defending a thesis entitled “Properties of Fabricated Fiber Bragg Grating for Temperature Sensing using a Phase Mask Technique”. Her M. Sc. project mainly studied the fabrication of the fiber Bragg grating sensor by imprinting the gratings with in the photoconductive fibers using phase mask employed the KrF excimer laser, which then applied in temperature sensing. She then worked as a tutor (teaching assistant) in Physics Department, Faculty of Science, Universiti Teknologi Malaysia for one year where she earned experiences in teaching Fundamental of Physics and Laboratory Techniques in undergraduate first year program. She enrolled as an Ph. D. student in Sciences of Energy and Materials program at INRS-EMT, University of Quebec, Canada, under the supervision of Prof. Roberto Morandotti since 2009. Her primary research interest focuses on terahertz generation and detection, terahertz characterization and sub-wavelength scaled terahertz source for imaging application.
