Gregory Moille

Gregory Moille is a PML/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division. He received his M.S. in Physics and Photonics from Grenoble Institut National Polytechnique, France. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Paris Saclay University, France. His doctoral research focused on the non-linear dynamics of photonic crystal cavities made of III-V materials, as well the fabrication and improvement of these devices. He is now working with Kartik Srinivasan developing chip-scale integrated micro-resonators made of Silicon Nitride for frequency comb applications.
