Holger Schmidt's Biography



Holger Schmidt, Narinder Kapany Professor of Electrical Engineering, University of California-Santa Cruz

Holger Schmidt received the Ph.D. degree in electrical and computer engineering from the University of California Santa Barbara. He served as a Postdoctoral Fellow at M.I.T. He is currently the Narinder Kapany Chair of Optoelectronics and Professor of Electrical Engineering at UC Santa Cruz. He also serves as the Associate Dean for Research in the Baskin School of Engineering and the Director of the W.M. Keck Center for Nanoscale Optofluidics. His research interests cover a broad range in photonics and integrated optics, including optofluidic devices, atom photonics, nano-magneto-optics, spintronic devices, and ultrafast optics. He has authored more than 380 publications, several book chapters, and co-edited the CRC Handbook of Optofluidics. He is a Fellow of the IEEE and the Optical Society of America, and received an NSF Career Award and a Keck Futures Nanotechnology Award.

We have developed an optofluidic platform that integrates biological sample preparation and optical single molecule analysis on a chip. I will describe the principle of the platform based on liquid-core optical waveguides and a broad range of capabilities that are enabled by this approach. These include the fluorescence analysis of single nucleic acids for amplification-free detection of Ebola infection as a new paradigm for molecular diagnostics with ultrahigh sensitivity and dynamic range. I will also describe multiplexed target detection with multi-mode interference waveguides for identification of single influenza viruses. The expansion of optofluidic capabilities through hybrid integration via nanopore-based electrical detection and integrated sample processing will be discussed.
