We present nanophotonic device technology inspired by natural periodic nanostructures. Examples of research outcomes are presented including innovative biosensor systems and materially-sparse nanogrids that operate efficiently on input light.
Robert Magnusson is the Texas Instruments Distinguished University Chair in Nanoelectronics and Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Texas at Arlington. He directs the UT-Arlington Nanophotonics Device Group that conducts theoretical and experimental research on periodic nanostructures, nanophotonics, nanoelectronics, nanoplasmonics, and optical bio- and chemical sensors. He is a Fellow of SPIE, the Optical Society, IEEE, and the National Academy of Inventors.
