Dr Auro Michele Perego

RAEng Research Fellow, Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies (AIPT) | Aston University


Dr Perego is a researcher in nonlinear optics, laser physics, and photonic technologies.



Dr Perego's main research interests are at the interface of applied physics and photonic engineering.

These include the investigation of novel techniques for optical frequency combs generation in optical resonators and the physics of mode-locking in semiconductor and fibre lasers.

Other research interests include parametric amplification in nonlinear waveguides, optical sensing and the study of instabilities and solitons in photonic systems.

He is currently a Royal Academy of Engineering Research Fellow – with a project on optical frequency combs – at the Aston Institute of Photonic Technologies - AIPT (https://www.aston.ac.uk/research/eps/aipt) where he is building his independent research group.

Dr Perego received a BSc and a MSc in Physics from Università dell’Insubria (Como, Italy) and a PhD degree in Electrical Engineering from Aston University in 2018.
