Brief Introduction of the Speakers
Prof. Javier AizpuruaJavier Aizpurua studies the excitation of localized surface plasmons in metallic particles induced by a variety of external probes, including light. Among others he has developed theory to understand the excitation of surface plasmons in Scanning Transmission Electron Microscopy (STEM), in Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM), in Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS), in Surface-Enhanced Infrared Absorption (SEIRA), or in Scattering-type Near-field Optical Microscopy (s-SNOM), among others. The understanding of the optical response of metallic nanoantennas in all these situations has been the main focus of his research during the last years. Javier Aizpurua achieved his Ph. D. at the University of the Basque Country on the theory of Plasmon excitation by fast electron beams. After research positions at Chalmers University of Technology (Sweden) and NIST (USA), he worked at the Donostia International Physics Center DIPC as a research Fellow. He currently holds a position as a senior scientific researcher of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research (CSIC) at the Materials Physics Center in San Sebastián, Spain  where he leads the research line on theory of Nanophotonics.
Prof. Rashid ZiaRashid Zia is the Manning Assistant Professor of Engineering and of Physics at Brown University and Director of the Brown Microelectronics Central User Facility. Rashid graduated in 2001 from Brown University with a combined A.B. in English and American Literature and Sc.B. in Engineering. He then went on to receive both his M.S. and Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Stanford University, where he was the first graduate student in the laboratory of Professor Mark L. Brongersma. As a student, Rashid was the recipient of a National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate (NDSEG) Fellowship and honorary Stanford Graduate Fellowship. As a faculty member, he has been the recipient of a National Science Foundation CAREER Award and a Department of Defense nominated Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) as well as a Fellow of the National Forum on the Future of Liberal Education. Rashid is also the lead PI for a Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative (MURI) on Quantum Metaphotonics & Metamaterials sponsored by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.
