MIT Lincoln Lab

Dr. Vladimir Liberman received the A. B. degree in Physics from Princeton University in 1986, the Ph. D. degree in Applied Physics from Columbia University in 1991 and completed his postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Currently, he is a staff scientist at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, where he has worked on testing and evaluation of optics for advanced lithography and optical characterization of nanomaterials. Most recently, he has been involved, both computationally and experimentally, with a variety of metamaterials-related projects for sensing, light shaping and energy-harvesting applications. He has co-authored 2 book chapters and over 100 papers.


IntroductionPreviously, we have reported on a novel class of chalcogenide phase change materials, based on Ge-Sb-Se-Te (GSST) alloys, with excellent infrared transparency from 1.5 to > 10 micron wavelengths. As shown in Fig.... [ view full abstract ]
