Zhaolin Lu is currently an Associate Professor of Department of Microsystems Engineering and Department of Electrical and Microelectronic Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester, USA. He received his M.S. degree in optics from Chinese Academy of Sciences, China, his M.S. degree in physics from Michigan Technological University, Houghton, USA, in 2002, and his Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the University of Delaware, Newark, USA, in 2006. During his work at Rochester Institute of Technology, he has established a Nanoplasmonics, Metamaterials, and Graphene (nPMG) Laboratory focusing on the exploration of the properties and applications of advanced optical and electromagnetic materials. Activities within the laboratory are directed towards the exploration of novel nanomaterials and nanostructures for applications in fields of photonic integrated circuits, super resolution imaging systems, optical fiber communications, microwave circuits, data storage, renewable energy, microfluidic systems, and so on. For years, his work is at the frontier of nanophotonics and has been widely highlighted by public media. He has published over 80 journals and conference papers and is an editor of several optics journals. He is the inventor of five patents and the recipient of Texas Instruments/Douglass Harvey Faculty Development Award. His work is currently supported by the National Science Foundation, the US Army, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, and the American Chemical Society.
