Biographical details

Darren Hudson recieved his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado, USA in 2009. From 2009 to 2010, Darren worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Otago in New Zealand. Darren joined CUDOS in 2010.

Research interests

Darren Hudson recieved his Ph.D. from the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado, USA in 2009. His research included long distance synchronization of mode-locked fiber lasers, high-harmonic generation using femtosecond fiber lasers, and a new mode-locking technique based on nonlinear coupling in waveguide arrays. From 2009 to 2010, Darren worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Otago in New Zealand on a cold atoms/molecules project studying low-energy collisions between ultracold clouds of Rubidium and Potassium. Darren joined CUDOS in 2010 and is working on projects involving mid-infrared light.
