Engineering Research Center
for Extreme Ultraviolet (EUV) Science and Technology


Professor Margaret Murnane, University Distinguished Professor, JILA and Departments of Physics and ECE at the University of Colorado at Boulder and the Deputy Director of the EUV ERC, has been nominated by President Barack Obama to the President's Committee on the National Medal of Science. View the Whitehouse announcemnt. The National Medal of Science is an honor bestowed by the President of the United States to individuals in science and engineering who have made important contributions to the advancement of knowledge in the fields of behavioral and social sciences, biology, chemistry, engineering, mathematics and physics. The twelve member presidential Committee on the National Medal of Science is responsible for selecting award recipients and is administered by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

Professor Carmen Menoni (CSU), principal investigator at the EUV ERC, was named as Fellow in the Optical Society of America "for contributions to nanoscale resolution imaging using compact extreme ultraviolet lasers and the understanding of semiconductor optical materials and devices"Read the announcement here.

Professor Carmen Menoni (CSU), principal investigator at the EUV ERC, was named as Fellow in the American Physical Society in November 2008 for "advancing nanoscale imaging using extreme ultraviolet laser light and seminal contributions to the understanding of the physics of semiconductor optical materials and laser diodes" Read the announcement here .

An overview of potential applications in chemistry and materials characterization for EUV technology was presented at Pittcon 2008 on March 4. See the abstract from this link.

Some of the research being done at the CSU ERC has been highlighted in many online articles, here is one of them from IEEE Spectrum.

Professor Margaret Murnane (CU), Deputy Director of the EUV ERC, was named Distinguished Professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder. This is the highest honor at CU for the teaching faculty. See

Professor Camen Menoni was awarded a grant to investigate mirror coatings utilizing some of the capabilities of the EUV Center. Click Here

See the work done with X-ray femtosecond pulses at CU to investigate molecular dynamics applicable to interplantary space. The news highlight appeared in Nature Photonics (click here to look). The full article is in Science, Click Here

Spiral zone plates done at UCB and LBNL are highlighted in LaserFocus. See the highlight from one of our grad students by clicking here

Lenseless imaging at CU gets a news flash in Nature.
