Holger Schmidt received his Ph.D. in electrical and computer engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara, and worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Currently, he is the Narinder Kapany Chair of optoelectronics, a professor of electrical and computer engineering, and the Associate Dean for Research with the Baskin School of Engineering at the University of California, Santa Cruz. His research interests include nanomagnetism, magneto-optics, spintronic devices, integrated photonics, optofluidics, and single-molecule analysis. He is a Fellow of The Optical Society, of IEEE, and of The National Academy of Inventors.
A nanopatterned magnetic structure features an unprecedently strong coupling between lattice vibrations and quantized spin waves, which could lead to novel ways of manipulating quantum information. Read More »
