[Illinois] Synthetic Optical Holography
26 Jan 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Brad Deutsch
Bradley earned a Ph.D. in Optics in 2011 at the University of Rochester’s Institute of Optics. His research involved nanoscale optics, with a Ph.D. emphasis on phase-shifting interferometric methods for near-field optical microscopy and nanoparticle detection. At Beckman he will work with Scott Carney and Rohit Bhargava of the Bioimaging Science and Technology group. Bradley’s project as a Beckman Fellow will focus on developing an ultramicroscopy technique that encodes spatial information in the spectral domain for improved temporal resolution without a loss of spatial resolution, for use in biology, medicine, and imaging applications.

George C. Schatz is Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry and of Chemical and Biological Engineering at Northwestern University. Degrees include a B. S. (1971) at Clarkson University and Ph. D. (1976) at Caltech, both in chemistry. He was a postdoc at MIT, and has been at Northwestern since 1976. Schatz has published three books and over 680 papers. Schatz is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the International Academy of Quantum Molecular Sciences and he is Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Physical Chemistry. Awards include Sloan and Dreyfus Fellowships, the Fresenius Award of Phi Lambda Upsilon, the Max Planck Research Award, the Bourke Medal of the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Ver Steeg Fellowship of Northwestern University, the Feynman Prize of the Foresight Institute, and the Debye Award of the ACS. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, the American Chemical Society and the AAAS.
Schatz’s research is concerned with theory and computational modeling in a variety of nanoscience topics as well as in related fields of biophysics and materials. His nanoscience work has specialized in the optical properties of noble metal nanoparticles, nanoholes in films and other nanostructured materials of relevance to chemical and biological sensing, solar energy, plasmonic device applications, and plasmon-induced chemistry. He has worked actively in the theory and modeling of the mechanical properties of hard materials, including diamond films, graphene and carbon nanotubes, and in the chemical functionalization of these materials. These studies have involved the development of molecular dynamics/electronic structure methods for modeling chemical reactions surfaces, and electronic structure/classical electrodynamics methods for calculating nanostructure optical properties.
