  • Biography
    Prof. David D. Nolte is a professor of Physics at Purdue University. His research interests range over broad aspects of interferometry and holography, and he has written “Optical Interferometry for Biology and Medicine”, published by Springer in 2011. His current research is on a high-speed biosensor known as the BioCD, and on motility contrast imaging of live tissue. He is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America and a Fellow of the American Physical Society. He was a Research Fellow of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, and a Presidential Young Investigator of the National Science Foundation. In 2005 he received the Herbert Newby McCoy Award, the highest scientific honor awarded by Purdue University. He received his baccalaureate from Cornell University in 1981 and his PhD from the University of California at Berkeley in 1988 in solid state physics, followed by a one-year post-doctoral appointment at AT&T Bell Labs before joining the faculty at Purdue. He is a technical founder of Perfinity Biosciences, a small biotech start-up company providing proteomic technology solutions, and has recently launched a new start-up company, Animated Dynamics, to pursue applications of motility contrast imaging in the pharmaceutical industry.
