Prof. Dr. Marin Soljačić

Prof. Marin Soljacic was born in Zagreb, Croatia on the 7th
February 1974. He attended MIOC high-school in Zagreb, after which
(1992), he started his undergraduate studies at MIT. He graduated from
MIT in 1996 with a BsE in Physics, and also a BsE in Electrical
Engineering. He received his PhD from Princeton (2000), with a thesis
topic in nonlinear optics. After graduating, he joined MIT as a
Pappalardo Fellow, and is currently an assistant professor of physics at
MIT.
    Prof. Soljacic is an expert in photonic crystals and nonlinear
optics. He has co-authored more than 60 scientific articles, is a
co-inventor on 12 patents (10 more pending), and has given more than 40
invited talks at conferences and universities around the world. In 2005,
he was awared Adolph Lomb Medal of the Optical Society of America, and in
2006, he was chosen by Technology Review to be one of the "TR35": top 35
innovators under the age of 35.
