Recent nano-fabrication developments enabled implementation of many nanophotonic techniques to macroscopic scales, which is crucial for many applications of interest (e.g. energy conversion, signal processing, lighting). Some or our work in these areas will be presented.



Marin Soljacic did undergraduate studies at MIT (1996), and PhD studies at Princeton (2000). He became a Professor in physics at MIT in 2005. His main research interests are in electromagnetic phenomena, focusing on nanophotonics and non-linear optics. He is a co-author of more than 200 scientific articles, and more than 100 issued US patents. He is the recipient of the Adolph Lomb medal from the Optical Society of America (2005), and the TR35 award of the Technology Review magazine (2006). In 2008, he was awarded a MacArthur fellowship “genius” grant. He is a correspondent member of the Croatian Academy of Engineering since 2009. In 2011 he became a Young Global Leader (YGL) of the World Economic Forum. In 2014, he was awarded Blavatnik National Award.
