Who am I?

My name is Ihosvany Camps Rodríguez. I born in Havana, Cuba in 1972 (last century). As I don’t like my name (my mother knows that), everyone calls me by my last name, Camps. I am living in Alfenas, a city in the state of Minas Gerais in Brazil.

I have two daughters, Kyra (youngest, singer, dancer and photographer) and Mila (first-born, technology fanatic and Biology student at USP), all of us are passionate about music.

Me, Kyra and Mila @ Corcovado, Rio de Janeiro, 2019.

I studied Physics at the Faculty of Physics in Havana University between 1990 and 1995. During this period, I started my research in the area of semiconductor physics studying the electronic and thermal properties of semiconductor laser based in AlGaAs under the supervision of Prof. Dra María Sánchez Colina. You can download my undergrad thesis here (in Spanish).

After my graduation, I started to work as professor right there, becoming the Head of the Mechanics Laboratory. As soon as I started teaching, I also started my master degree studies. Under the guidance of Prof. Dra María Sánchez Colina, I obtain my Master in Science degree in December, 1996. The title of my thesis was Conversion efficiency of AlAGaAs multiquantum well lasers and you can download here (in Spanish).

In April, 1997, I started my Ph.D. studies in Condensed Matter Physics at the Institute of Physics at the Fluminense Federal University under the guidance of Prof. Dr. Sergio Makler. The subject of my theses was the study of the properties of a phonon laser (called SASER). Here you can download my thesis with title Study of the electronic and emission properties of a phonon laser (in Portuguese).

Here you will find information about my teaching and research activities together with some humor images (memes) and general tips (about Linux and different software I used in my research).
