Capt. Leibold successfully completed his MSc at RMC in the field of optics. More specifically, his thesis was on the holographic generation of surface relief diffraction gratings on thin films of photo-mechanically activated azo-benzene glass forming compounds. Under the supervision of Dr. Ribal Georges Sabat, Capt. Leibold was able to make advances in the theory and production techniques for creating circular diffraction gratings by using interference patterns from a mirror in the shape of the interior of a cone. The resulting circular gratings can be customized in order to meet specific design requirements and may be used in such applications as: optical sensors, enhancement of LEDs, improvements in solar cell efficiency, plasmonic lenses, circular grating distributed feedback dye laser and optical measuring techniques.
Capt Leibold is currently a lecturer in the Department of Physics and Space Science at RMC and is planning on pursuing his PhD in the field of optics.
