Juliet T. Gopinath

Professor, Department of Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering, University of Colorado-Boulder

Juliet T. Gopinath holds a BS degree in electrical engineering from the University of Minnesota and SM and PhD degrees from MIT in electrical engineering. From 2005 to 2009, she worked as a member of technical staff at MIT Lincoln Laboratory. Her work included wavelength-beam combining of eyesafe diode arrays, cryogenic Yb:YAG lasers/amplifiers, modelocked semiconductor optical waveguide lasers (SCOWLs), high power eyesafe laser sources, and Raman spectroscopy. She is now a professor at the University of Colorado-Boulder in the Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering department. Her research interests include integrated and nonlinear optics, ultrafast lasers, semiconductor lasers, wavelength beam combining, spectroscopy, mid-infrared sources, and adaptive optics. Dr. Gopinath is the recipient of the National Science Foundation Graduate Fellowship (1998-2001), an R&D 100 Award (2012), an NSF CAREER Award (2016) and the University of Colorado Boulder Provost’s Achievement Award (2016). She has authored and co-authored 67 peer-reviewed journal papers and over 78 conference proceedings. She served as an associate editor for the IEEE Photonics Society Journal from 2011-2017, was a member of the IEEE Photonics Society Publications Council from 2017-2018, as an Associate Director for the CUbit Quantum Initiative (2019), and is currently an Associate Editor for Optica.
