Profile Summary

Dr. Ariadna Calcines Rosario is a Senior Optical Engineer and PhD in Astrophysics.

Her doctoral thesis was awarded "Best PhD Prize in Instrumentation, Computation and Technology Development in Astronomy and Astrophysics of Spain (2013-2014)" by the Spanish Astronomical Society for her design of the integral field spectrographs for the European Solar Telescope (EST).

Seventeen years of optical engineering experience with participation in twenty projects for solar physics, night time astronomy and space (e.g. EST, GREGOR, ELT HARMONI, MOSAIC, VLT CUBES). Currently working at the Centre for Advanced Instrumentation (CfAI) of Durham University (UK) and previously at the Institute of Astrophysics of the Canary Islands (IAC, Spain) and the Leibniz-Institute for Astrophysics of Potsdam (AIP, Germany).

Main research line is the optical design of integral field spectrographs and image slicers (e.g. EST, GRIS at GREGOR, HR GNIRS at Gemini North, VLT CUBES). Currently leading two projects (MINOS and LUCES) in collaboration with UCL to enable the image slicer technology in the EUV for the next generation of solar space missions.

Received the Young Female Scientist Talent of Spain Prize (2022) for the development of the technology of image slicers for Solar Physics, awarded by the Royal Academy of Sciences of Pain in collaboration with Mastercard. Interested in Innovation, Research and Development and Creative Optics.
