Kartik Srinivasan is a Project Leader in the Nanofabrication Research Group in the CNST. He received B.S., M.S., and Ph.D. degrees in Applied Physics from the California Institute of Technology, where his graduate research was supported by a Fannie and John Hertz Foundation Fellowship. After receiving his B.S., he worked for one year at XPonent Photonics, a startup company based in Monrovia, CA. Before coming to NIST, he worked at Caltech as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Center for the Physics of Information. At the CNST, he leads projects in the field of nanophotonics. Kartik has published over 60 peer-reviewed papers in journals such as Applied Physics Letters, Physical Review Letters, Nature, and Science, on topics including microcavity lasers, chip-based cavity quantum electrodynamics, near-field optical probing, quantum frequency conversion, and on the electromagnetic design and nanofabrication of photonic crystal devices. He has been awarded both the NIST Sigma Xi Young Scientist Award for 2011 and the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE), the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on outstanding scientists and engineers beginning their independent research careers.
