Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain


Carmen Vazquez received the M.S. degree in physics (electronics) in 1991 from the Complutense University of Madrid, Madrid, Spain, and the Ph.D. degree in photonics at Telecommunications Engineering School from the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Madrid, Spain, in 1995. She enjoyed a fellowship at TELECOM, Denmark, in 1991, working on erbium-doped fiber amplifiers. From 1992 to October 1995, she worked at the Optoelectronics Division of Telefónica Investigación y Desarrollo. She was involved in III–V integrated optics devices characterization, design, and fabrication. In October 1995, she joined University Carlos III of Madrid, Spain, where she is currently Full Professor at Electronics Technology Department and Head of the Displays and Photonic Applications Group. She was Visiting Scientist at RLE in Massachusetts Institute of Technology from August 2012 to July 2013, working on silicon photonics. She was also Head of Department for 3 years and Vice-Chancellor for 4 years. Her research interest focuses on integrated optics, optical communications, and instrumentation including plastic optical fibers, broadband access networks and monitoring techniques, power over fiber and RoF systems, filters, switches, fiber optic sensors, and WDM networks. She is SPIE Fellow and IEEE Senior Member, and she has published more than 200 scientific publications and is the holder of 5 patents. She has participated in different European projects and networks in the ESPRIT, RACE, and IST framework programmes such as PLANET, OMAN, HEMIND, SAMPA, EPhoton/One+, and BONE (Building the Future Optical Network in Europe) and has led several national researching projects and consortium such as SINFOTON-CM.
