Marcelo Davanço

Marcelo Davanço is a Research Scientist in the Nanofabrication Research Group in the CNST.  He received a B.S. and M.S. in Electrical Engineering from the Universidade Estadual de Campinas (UNICAMP), Brazil and a Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of California, Santa Barbara.  During his doctoral studies, he worked with InP-based photonic integrated circuits incorporating 2D photonic crystals.  After obtaining his Ph.D., he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the University of Michigan, where he worked with optical metamaterials, organic microcavities with strong exciton-photon coupling, and hemispherical organic focal plane arrays.  Marcelo then worked as a Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nanofabrication Research Group, where he developed new techniques for efficient spectroscopy and single photon extraction from single semiconductor quantum dots, and developed methods for optical frequency conversion using cavity optomechanics.  He is currently working with CNST researchers and a number of external collaborators in developing measurement and fabrication techniques to advance the application of nanophotonics in sensing, imaging, and future electronics.
