ECE Graduate Student Awarded Frontiers in Optics Grant

Sergio Carbajo Receiving Award

ECE graduate student Sergio Carbajo was named the recipient of the 2011 Frontiers in Optics (FiO) Hilbert Memorial Student Travel Grant. The program recognizes the research excellence of students in the areas of optical engineering, lens design, and/or illumination design. The grant included a stipend for travel expenses to the Optical Society of America 2011 FiO Conference in San Jose, Calif., where Carbajo accepted the award.

Carbajo, who is pursuing a master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering at Colorado State University under the guidance of Professor Carmen Menoni, joined the National Science Foundation Engineering Research Center for Extreme Ultraviolet Science and Technology (EUV ERC) in 2008. His current research interests include the development of nanometer-scale spatial and temporal resolutions and laser-based EUV/soft X-ray imaging systems.

Carbajo is a member of the Student Leadership Council of the EUV ERC and serves as the president of the SPIE student chapter at CSU. Prior to joining Colorado State, Carbajo received both his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in telecommunications engineering from Tecnun, University of Navarra, Spain.
