Research Interests


Michael S. Eggleston received his B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering and Physics from Iowa State University in 2009. In 2015, he received his Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley. His dissertation explored the use of optical antennas to enhance the rate of spontaneous emission in nanoLEDs to create an ultra high-speed, efficient, nano-optical emitter. His research interests include the design and testing of integrated Silicon Photonics and nanophontonics for high-speed energy-efficient light emitters and optical links. He is currently researching new methods to optically sense what is inside the body and in its immediate surroundings using such techniques as optical coherence tomography (OCT), spectroscopy, Raman scattering, and LIDAR.


PhD, Electrical Engineering, University of California, Berkeley, 2015.
BS, Electrical Engineering and Physics (double majors), Iowa State University, 2009.
