Professor Fainman joined the faculty at UCSD in July 1990 following a faculty appointment at the University of Michigan. Current research interests in his group include the investigation of artificial dielectric properties of nanostructures; polarization selective computer generated holograms and their applications for image processing, transparent photonic switching fabric and networks, and packaging optoelectronic devices and systems; programmable diffractive optical elements; 3-D holographic optical storage; diffractive optics with multifunctionality; optical information processing with femtosecond laser pulses; nonconventional 3-D imaging and displays; quantum cryptography for photonic network security and privacy.
