Michael Kues received his Diploma degree in Physics in October 2009 from the University of Münster (Germany) with a thesis on “Supercontinuum Generation with Feedback”. In August 2013 he successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis entitled “Seeded and Self-Seeded Nonlinear Effects for Pulse Control in Optical Fibers” developed in the Optical Technologies group at University of Münster under the supervision of Prof. Fallnich (University of Münster) and the co-supervision of Prof. Boller (University of Twente) and graduated with distinction (highest honors). His Ph.D. focused on the experimental observation, characterization and comprehensive theoretical explanation of nonlinear system dynamics in synchronously driven passive nonlinear fiber ring resonators as well as the theoretical prediction and experimental verification of controlling modulation instability processes in nonlinear optical fibers. Apart from his work on nonlinear fiber optics, during his Ph.D. Michael also worked in the field of random lasers which has been supported by the German Ministry of Education and Research within the PEARLS project. Particularly he investigated the laser’s polarization dynamics and developed the first prototype of an anti-counterfeiting marker based on the polarization characteristics of a random laser.


Michael Kues is currently a Post-Doctoral Fellow at INRS-EMT in the group of Prof. Morandotti (UOP). His current research deals with the investigation and control of nonlinear electric field dynamics in integrated optical devices (i.e., highly nonlinear waveguides and micro ring resonators), highly important for various applications, e.g., telecommunication or metrology.
