This talk is part of the International Workshop “Novel Ideas in Optics: From Advanced Materials to Revolutionary Applications” hosted by Purdue University.
Dr. Mark Brongersma is an associate proffesor for the Materials Science and Engineering department at Stanford University. He received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering from FOM Institute for Atomic and Molecular Physics in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Brongersma's research focuses on the fabrication and characterization of nanometer-size electronic and optical devices. The ability to engineer materials at the atomic level has opened myriad possibilities for the advancement of technologies that impact the areas of semiconductors, telecommunications, chemistry, and pharmaceuticals. His current research is aimed at the development of Si-based microphotonic functionality and plasmonic devices that can manipulate the flow of light at the nanoscale.
