Areas of expertise: Brown has conducted research in semiconductors, optoelectronics, and optical engineering. His early research focused on frequency-stable semiconductor laser design and silicon-based waveguide technology, including the first experimental observation of all-optical switching in a nonlinear Bragg reflector. His publications have twice (1993 and 2000) been cited among the best optics-related research by Optics and Photonics News. Brown's recent research activities have included: 1) Switching and modulation in optically-resonant periodic electrode structures; 2) Optical metrology of aspheric optical surfaces for projection lithography and other reflective imaging applications; 3) Focusing and imaging of cylindrical vector beams. The latter has been applied to semiconductor lithography and inspection, and single molecule imaging.
