Nicholas Rivera is a graduate student in physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he also received his bachelor’s degree in physics. He is a recipient of a Department of Energy Computational Science Fellowship and the LeRoy Apker Award of the American Physical Society (APS). His research focuses on novel fundamental phenomena in the interactions of electrons with photons in nanophotonic systems, such as multiphoton processes, high harmonic generation, x-ray generation, and lasing interactions.


Making Materials Mimic Each Other

A novel framework for controlling many-body systems with external fields shows how two distinct materials could be made to mimic each other or form more exotic materials. Read More »
