New Leadership for CUNY Center for Advanced Technology

I am pleased to announce that Dr. David Crouse has been named the new Director of the CUNY Center for Advanced Technology in Photonics Applications (CUNY CAT). Dr. Crouse is a faculty member in the Department of Electrical Engineering at the City College of CUNY, and is also a member of the Doctoral Faculty at the CUNY Graduate Center. Dr. Crouse brings to this position a wide range of experience including fundamental research in photonics, as well as industrial experience and technology transfer activities. His research includes photonic crystals, plasmonic crystals and metamaterials, and their applications to sensors, emitters and energy devices. He has published over 25 papers on these topics and has over ten patents or patents pending on these and related technologies. Dr. Crouse is equally interested in technology transfer activities, having been associated with three start-up companies that were spun off from academic research. Two of these companies, Phoebus Optoelectronics, LLC and Hudson Energy Devices, LLC were co-founded by Dr. Crouse. These companies have received significant funding from small business innovative research grants, venture capitalists and other investors, and have developed several technologies including lasers, infrared sensors, and polarimetric sensors. Dr. Crouse is looking forward to working with CUNY faculty and administration to expand the CUNY CAT's facilities and programs for research, development and technology transfer activities.

David received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University and his B.S. in Physics from Purdue University. He has worked as a Senior Process Engineer at Intel, a Senior Photonics Engineer at Nova Crystals, and co-founded and currently serves as Senior Technical Advisor at Phoebus Optoelectronics and Hudson Energy Devices, LLC.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Harry Gafney of Queens College – CUNY for his hard work as interim Director of the CUNY CAT for the past two years. Dr. Gafney has been involved with the CAT from its onset and I am confident he will continue to contribute to its success.
