Prof. Mathias Kolle

Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering

Primary DLC

Department of Mechanical Engineering

MIT Room: 3-162

Areas of Interest and Expertise

Manufacture of Novel Photonic Structures
Optical Instrumentation and modeling
Biological Photonic Systems
Bio-Inspired Dynamic Photonic Materials
X-Ray Nanotomography

Research Summary

At MIT, Professor Mathias aims to continue his work on multilayer photonics coatings for elastic substrates. He has developed a means to coat fibers such that they reflect light in a very narrow wavelength band, the center wavelength of which varies with the state of strain of the underlying material.
