Nicholas Madamopoulos received the B.S. degree in Physics (with honors) from the University of Patra, Greece, in 1993 and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Optical Science and Engineering from CREOL/College of Optics and Photonics, University of Central Florida, Orlando, in 1996 and 1998, respectively. His Ph.D. specialization was in photonic information processing systems, where he introduced novel photonic delay lines for phased array antenna applications, as well as photonic processing modules for fiber-optic communications.
He is an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering, City College of CUNY, since October 2007. His research interests include photonic information processing systems and subsystems for telecom and non-telecom applications. Before joining the City College he was a Research Associate at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of California-Santa Barbara. He has also spent many years conducting research for the industry, where he served as Sr. Research Engineer for Calient Networks, Inc. (Santa Barbara, CA), Member of Technical Staff for Lucent-Bell Labs (Somerset, NJ), and Sr. Research Scientist for Corning, Inc. (Corning, NY and Somerset, NJ).
Dr. Madamopoulos is a Senior Member of IEEE-Photonics Society (formely LEOS). He was one of the founding members of the first IEEE-LEOS Student chapter (Orlando Chapter) and he served as treasurer and president for several years. He is currently the vice-Chair of the IEEE- Photonics Society Princeton-Central New Jersey Section. He is a reviewer for IEEE and OSA publications and he has served in the program committee of a variety of Conferences. He received a New Focus Student Essay Prize in 1996, the SPIE Educational Scholarship in Optical Engineering in 1997, the Graduate Merit Fellowship Award in 1998 and the New Focus/OSA Student Award in 1998.
