Nathan Eigenfeld

Nathan earned a B.A. in Physics and Mathematics from St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN. As an undergrad Nathan partook in a research project investigating the performance of self-assembled monolayers as lubricants for MEMS devices. He also worked as a summer intern at Advanced Energy Industries in Fort Collins working with high power RF plasma chambers. These experiences generated an interest in MEMS. He is now a member the Bright group investigating the enhanced performance of microbolometer structures for infrared imaging utilizing atomic layer deposition (ALD). Recently, he received his first publication in Advanced Materials with a paper titled, "Ultrathin 3D Nanodevices from Atomic Layer Deposition on Polyimide," ( When not in the lab, Nathan enjoys freestyle skiing, mountain biking in the bright Colorado sunshine.
