The Stanford Photonics Research Center builds strategic partnerships between the Stanford University research community and companies employing optics and photonics in their commercial activities. SPRC offers member companies facilitated access to Stanford faculty, students, and researchers via faculty-led Working Groups, SPRC workshops and symposia, research project collaborations and visiting researcher programs.
Jonathan was born in Columbus, Ohio. He received his BSE degree in Electrical Engineering from Princeton University in 2004 with highest honors and his PhD in Applied Physics from Harvard University in 2010 under the supervision of Professor Federico Capasso. He was an NSF Graduate Fellow, and his dissertation focused on the optical properties of self-assembled metallodielectric colloidal clusters.
SPRC is proud to support the National Photonics Initiative. The National Photonics Initiative (NPI) is a collaborative alliance among industry, academia and government seeking to raise awareness of photonics - the application of light - and drive US funding and investment in five key photonics-driven fields critical to US competitiveness and national security: advanced manufacturing, communications and information technology, defense and national security, energy, and health and medicine.
