Dr. Michael Salvador
Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Washington
PhD, Physical Chemistry, University of Cologne, Germany, 2008
MS, Chemistry, University of Cologne, Germany, 2002 (Diploma)
BS, Chemistry, University of Cologne, Germany, 1999 (Vordiplom)
I am interested in organic polymer electronics, organic thin-film devices, photorefractive polymers,
optical imaging through biological tissue, photorefractive holography, coherence-domain imaging, cross-sectional tomographic imaging, biosensing and bioimaging.
I am currently working with Dr. David S. Ginger, Associate Professor of Chemistry at the University of Washington, on what is called "organic electronics" which means electronic devices based on organic chemistry material. I will be working on surface plasmon enhanced organic solar cells.
While at Caltech I worked on optical phase conjugation for turbidity suppression in biological tissue using a NIR-sensitive photorefractive polymer composite as the recoding medium.
