“My internship at ASE Optics has only furthered my interest in optical design”.
My name is Lorenzo Calvano. I have a bachelor’s degree in Physics from Harvey Mudd College in California. I am in progress to obtain my master’s degree in the Erasmus Mundus “Europhotonics” joint program from Aix-Marseille University and the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC).
Among my various research projects in magnetic materials, quantum cryptography, and photonic materials – and now here at ASE Optics – I have learned how vital optical devices are to so many different industries and academic research areas. Because of this, my primary interest is in optical design to meet this growing need.
Why did you choose ASE Optics Europe for your internship?
ASE Optics was the perfect place. This internship allows me to gain experience with the different stages behind optical design, alongside a team of optical and mechanical engineers with a long experience developing a wide variety of complex optical systems for different projects and applications.
What was your role in ASE Optics Europe?
During my internship at ASE Optics, I have worked on several projects where I have designed and built optical assemblies and written code to accurately evaluate their performance.
How would you define your experience at ASE Optics Europe?
My experience has been wonderful. I am getting what I was looking for when I chose to do my internship here. I have had the support of whole team, who are very talented and friendly. This experience has only furthered my interest in optical design.
