Biography

Steven Brueck, Ph.D. is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the past Director of the Center for High Technology Materials at UNM. He received his Ph.D. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1971. He was the first professor in the history of UNM's School of Engineering to be named a UNM Distinguished Professor, in 2006. The title is the highest that UNM bestows on its faculty. Dr. Brueck provided both technical and administrative leadership as director of UNM’s Center for High Technology Materials from 1985 to 2013. Generating more than $9 million annually in grants and contracts, CHTM is an internationally recognized center for optoelectronics, microelectronics and nanotechnology research. Dr. Brueck is the founding editor of the IEEE Journal of Special Topics in Quantum Electronics. In 1991 he received the UNM School of Engineering’s Outstanding Researcher Award, and in 2000 IEEE awarded him the Third Millennium Medal. Dr. Brueck’s research explores the extension of optical lithography/ microscopy to the high-resolutions necessary for future generations of ICs. He applies the capabilities of interferometric lithography to expand nanophotonic, nanoscale growth and nanofluidic science and technology. A topic of recent interest is extending microscopy, one of the oldest and most important areas of optical science, to higher resolutions approaching the linear systems limits.
