Mordechai Rothschild

Dr. Mordechai RothschildDr. Mordechai Rothschild is Group Leader of the Chemical, Microsystem, and Nanoscale Technologies Group at Lincoln Laboratory, leading programs in metamaterials, microfluidics, standoff chemical sensing, and nanofabrication. Previously, he played a leading role in the development of advanced optical lithography technologies, including 193-nm and liquid-immersion lithography.

Most recently, Dr. Rothschild has directed programs developing nanoplasmonic devices for applications in optical limiting, energy harvesting, and chemical sensing, and has managed programs to develop multifunctional microsystems combining optics, mechanics, and microfluidics.

Dr. Rothschild has authored or coauthored more than 180 papers and conference proceedings in the fields of photochemistry, spectroscopy, lithography, nanodevices, and chemical detection. He is also the co-inventor of 13 patented technologies. He cochaired the 2012 Lithography Workshop, and he is a member of the executive committee of the Lithography Workshops and a member of the program committee of the International Conference on Electron, Ion, and Photon Beam Technology and Nanofabrication. He is the recipient of the 2014 SPIE Frits Zernike Award in Lithography and of the 2015 Edwin H. Land medal awarded jointly by the Society for Imaging Science and Technology and the Optical Society of America.

Dr. Rothschild received a BS degree in physics from Bar-Ilan University and a PhD in optics from the University of Rochester. As a graduate student, he conducted research in infrared photochemistry.
