Mario Chemnitz is a trained physicist specialized in integrated nonlinear optics. He obtained his diploma degree in physics (Master’s equivalent) at the Friedrich-Schiller-University Jena, Germany, end 2011. In his diploma project he designed and implemented tuneable dual-wavelength fiber laser sources based on four-wave mixing for coherent Anti-Stokes Raman microscopy in the research group of Prof. Jens Limpert at the Institute of Applied Physics in Jena. After his graduation, he joined a postgraduate study program at the University of Cambridge, UK, which he completed in 2013 upon acceptance of his thesis „novel supercontinuum source for improved time-resolved spectroscopic sensing“. Back at the University of Jena, Mario started his doctoral studies in the research group of Prof. Markus Schmidt at the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology. His theoretical studies and experimental work revealed unprecedented coherence properties of supercontinuum spectra generated in highly noninstantaneous nonlinear liquid-core fibers as result of a modified (hybrid) soliton fission dynamics, indeed demonstrating a superior operation domain over nonlinear glass fibers. He received his PhD degree (suma cum laude) in early 2019, after successfully defending his PhD thesis entitled „soliton dynamics in liquid-core optical fibers“. Shortly after, he joined the research team of Prof. Roberto Morandotti as postdoctoral fellow, where he is now bringing in his expertise to develop novel telecom-compatible entangled photon sources.
