BIOGRAPHY

Mário F. S. Ferreira graduated in Physics from the University of Porto, Portugal,  and received the Ph.D. degree in Physics in 1992 from the University of Aveiro, Portugal, where he is now a Professor at the Physics Department. Between 1990 and 1991 he was at the University of Essex, UK, performing experimental work on external-cavity semiconductor lasers and nonlinear optical fiber amplifiers.
 

He is a member of the Optical Society of America (OSA), SPIE - The International Society for Optical Engineering, The New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS), the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), the European Optical Society (EOS), the European Physical Society (EPS) and the Portuguese Physical Society. He served in various committees of the Optical Society of America (OSA) and of SPIE – The International Society for Optics and Photonics, has been also a member of the Telecommunications Committee of the “International Association of Science and Technology for Development” (IASTED).
 

He served also in the technical committees of various international conferences. He served as a reviewer of several scientific journals in the area of optics and optoelectronics. He is presently an Associate Editor of “Optical Fiber Technology- Materials, Devices, and Systems” (Elsevier) and a member of the Advisory Board of “Fiber and Integrated Optics” (Taylor & Francis), “Nonlinear Optics, Quantum Optics” (Old City Publishing, Inc.), and “International Journal of Optics” (Hindawi Publishing Corporation).

 

PUBLICATIONS

Mário F. S. Ferreira has written about 400 scientific journal and conference publications, and several books, namely: “Optics and Photonics” (Lidel, 2003, in Portuguese), “Topics of Mathematical Physics” (Editora Ciência Moderna, 2018, Brazil, in Portuguese), “Optical Fibers: Technology, Communications and recent Advances” (Ed., NOVA Science Publishers, 2017), and “Nonlinear Effects in Optical Fibers” (John Wiley & Sons, OSA, 2011). He was the Guest Editor of two Special Issues of “Fiber and Integrated Optics” (Taylor & Francis): “Fiber Optics in Portugal” (2005) and “Nonlinear Fiber Optics” (2015), and a Special Issue of “Fibers” (MDPI): “Optical Fiber Communications” (2018). Actually, he is the Guest Editor of a Special Issue of “Applied Optics” and “Optics Express” (Optical Society of America): “Optical Sensors and Sensing 2019” (2019).
