Hou-Tong Chen received his B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Science and Technology of China (USTC), Hefei, China, in 1997 and 2000, respectively, and the Ph.D. degree from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Troy, NY, USA, in 2004, all in physics. Currently he is a Technical Staff Member at the Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies (CINT) at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Los Alamos, NM, USA, which is a US Department of Energy Office of Science’s Nanoscale Science Research Center (NSRC) jointly operated by the Los Alamos and the Sandia National Laboratories. Between 2005 and 2008 he was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at LANL. Chen’s research has been centered in metamaterials and terahertz science and technology. He is responsible for the first demonstration of a terahertz scanning near-field microscope capable of nanometer resolution. He is also a pioneer in terahertz metamaterials and devices for effective control and manipulation of terahertz radiation. He has published over 40 papers in peer-reviewed journals including Nature, Nature Photonics, and Physical Review Letters. He has been in the organizing committee of several conferences and workshops and is a Member of the Editorial Committee of the International Journal of Terahertz Science and Technology. He has delivered nearly 40 invited presentations in international conferences and research institutions.
