Daniel E. Oates
Dr. Daniel E. Oates is a technical staff member in the Quantum Information and Integrated Nanosystems Group. His current research interests are microwave-frequency superconducting electronics, specifically applications in receiver front ends to reduce noise figure and interference. He is also active in characterization of superconducting materials for microwave applications using resonator techniques he pioneered that have been used to understand the basic physics of high-temperature superconductors.
Prior to joining Lincoln Laboratory, Oates was an Alexander von Humboldt fellow at the University of Bonn, Germany. He was also employed at Bell Laboratories for several years. Research during his first 11 years at Lincoln Laboratory was in the field of microwave acoustics. He invented and developed temperature-stable surface-acoustic-wave dispersive-delay lines. He also developed surface-acoustic-wave programmable transversal filters in which surface-wave devices were coupled with silicon integrated circuits.
Oates has published as author or coauthor 86 papers in the field of superconductivity and related areas. He holds seven patents and has written three book chapters. He has given numerous invited talks at the international conferences on superconductivity and has served on the organizing committees for several important conferences. He organized two Materials Research Society Symposia and was the general chair for the 2002 Symposium on High Temperature Superconductors in High Frequency Fields. He is a Life Fellow of the IEEE, serves on the Administrative Committee of the IEEE Council on Superconductivity, and is an associate editor of the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity.
Oates received his PhD degree in atomic physics from MIT and his BA degree in physics, with honors, from Yale University.
