Prof. Greg Nordin received a BS degree in Physics from Brigham Young University in 1984, a MS degree in Physics from UCLA in 1986, and the PhD in Electrical Engineering from the University of Southern California in 1992. From 1984 to 1992 he was also employed at Hughes Aircraft Company, first in the Radar Systems Group, then in the Electrooptical and Data Systems Group, and finally at the Hughes Research Laboratory. From 1992 to 2005 Dr. Nordin was at The University of Alabama in Huntsville in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department as Assistant, Associate, and Full Professor. He was also the founding director of the university's Nano and Micro Devices Center, and developed a 7,600 sq. ft. cleanroom facility for nano and microfabrication. Dr. Nordin joined the faculty of the Electrical & Computer Engineering Department at Brigham Young University as Full Professor in 2005.
Prof. Nordin's current research activities include biological and chemical sensors, nanophotonics and integrated optics, micro- and nanofabrication, MEMS, microfluidics, rigorous electromagnetic analysis and design of optical structures, electro-optics, and polymer materials and devices. Past research efforts include integrated micro polarization filters for imaging polarimetry, diffractive optical elements, volume holography and stratified volume holograms, and diffractive 3-D displays. Dr. Nordin has led numerous large research programs, and has been PI on research grants from government and industry totaling $17M.
Prof. Nordin was General Co-Chair of the Optical Society of America's (OSA's) 2006 Nanophotonics Topical Meeting and from 2002 to 2007 was Co-Chair of the Micromachining Technology for Microoptics and Nanooptics Conference held at SPIE's Photonics West.
Prof. Nordin is a recipient of the NSF CAREER award (1996), and received the UAH Outstanding Researcher Award for 1998-1999 and 1999-2000. He also received the UAH Foundation Award for Research and Creative Achievement in 2000. As a graduate student, Prof. Nordin was awarded both the Hughes Aircraft Company Masters Degree Fellowship and Doctoral Fellowship.
