Holger Schmidt received an M.S. degree in physics from the University of Stuttgart, Germany, in 1994, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical and computer engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1995 and 1999, respectively. After serving as a postdoctoral fellow with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, he joined the University of California, Santa Cruz, in 2001. He is currently Professor of Electrical Engineering and Director of the W.M. Keck Center for Nanoscale Optofluidics.
Prof. Schmidt has authored over 190 publications and several book chapters in various fields of optics. He recently edited the first Handbook of Optofluidics published with CRC Press. His research interests include single molecule detection and analysis in optofluidic devices, hollow-core waveguide photonics, atomic spectroscopy on a chip, and nano-magneto-optics. He is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the Optical Society of America and American Physical Society. He received an NSF Career Award in 2002 and a Keck Futures Nanotechnology Award in 2005.
