Maarij Syed (B.S., 1991, University of Oklahoma; Ph.D., 1998, University of Notre Dame) is currently Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics and Optical Engineering at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology where he has been since Fall 1998. His Ph.D. work in Prof. Dobrowolska-Furdyna's group was on the magneto-optics of small offset superlattice structures based on II-VI semiconductors. His research has included investigations of novel materials for SPR applications and the magneto-optics of superparamagnetic nanoparticles. Currently he focuses on the size determination of nanoparticles and the investigation of their relaxation dynamics as well as the investigation of silica nano-films fabricated through spin coating techniques and their humidity response. This research is carried out in collaboration with the Dept. of Chemical Engineering and is largely based on using ellipsometry to characterize the silica films in various humidity environments. He also has a continuing interest in pedagogical issues related to electromagnetism.
