Saulius Juodkazis

Professor of Nanophotonics, Swinburne University of Technology

Saulius Juodkazis received his doctorate in experimental physics and material science jointly from Vilnius University (Lithuania) and Lyon-I University (France) in '97. He has contributed to development of a three-dimensional femtosecond laser micro-fabrication for opto-fluidic, optical memory, and photonic crystal applications. His current research is focused on applying principles of plasmonic light-field enhancement and its spectral control for applications in sensing, solid-state lighting, and solar energy conversion.

Saulius Juodkazis joined Swinburne University of Technology in November 2009 and is currently a nanophotonics Professor in Centre for Micro-Photonics at Swinburne.

He has established a group of Applied Plasmonics which is focused on fundamental and applied research in fields of nanotechnology and nano-photonics with aim at industrial applications.

He has setup and is responsible for the Nano-Lab (Swinburne nanofabrication facility) operational from February 2012 in the class-1000 cleanroom of the Advanced Technologies Centre.
