Jorge R. Zurita Sánchez


He received the Bachelor degree in Physics Engineering from the Instituto Tecnológico y de Estudios Superiores de Monterrey in 1994. He joined the MS program at the Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica Óptica y Electrónica in 1997 where he obtained the MS degree in 1999. During this period, he studied dipole radiation in periodic structures under the direction of Prof. Peter Halevi. He continued his graduate studies at the University of Rochester from fall 1999 to Spring 2005. His PhD research focused on deterministic and stochastic electromagnetic interaction with nanoscale structures and it was supervised by Prof. Lukas Novotny. In the Spring 2005, he began a 15-month postdoctoral stay at the Universität Potsdam in the group of Prof. Carsten Henkel where he collaborated in the European Union project QUELE devoted to quantum applications of trapped electrons. In 2007 he joined the Instituto Nacional de Astrofísica Óptica y Electrónica through the repatriation program of the Consejo Nacional de Ciencia y Tecnología.
