Bio

Dr Jennifer Hastie is a Research Team Leader at the Institute of Photonics, University of Strathclyde with a main interest in optically-pumped semiconductor disk lasers (SDLs, also known as VECSELs) for high spatial and spectral brightness and broad tunability at novel wavelengths. 

Jennifer currently holds an EPSRC Challenging Engineering Award supporting the team’s research in the area of narrow linewidth SDLs with advanced wavelength flexibility for applications including metrology and lithography; spanning ultraviolet, visible and infrared spectral regions through the use of novel materials and intracavity nonlinear frequency conversion techniques.

Jennifer has been an active member of the Technical Programme Committee of the international OSA conference Advanced Solid-State Photonics 2009-2013 and was recently the Programme Chair of the VECSELs conference at SPIE Photonics West 2013. She is a Senior Member of the Optical Society of America and a Senior Member of the IEEE.
