U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s Optical Science Division, Physicist

I am a physicist with over 15 years of experience in optical materials and thin films within the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory’s Optical Science Division. I am currently the Head of the Specialty Waveguide Section where we carry out research on novel waveguide materials and structures. We work with a variety of material systems, specializing in those with transparency in the mid-infrared and those that are not being developed outside of the DoD. Currently, I am working on a novel, chip-based, non-mechanical, beam steering technology that aims to replace gimbals with a lighter, more compact solution.
