Dr. Carrie Hofmann


Micro- and Nanowires, Plasmonics


Dr. Hofmann is the Assistant Director of the Light-Material Interactions in Energy Conversion, an Energy Frontier Research Center funded by the Department of Energy. She received her Ph.D. in Materials Science from Caltech with a thesis entitled, “Optics at the Nanoscale: Light Emission in Plasmonic Nanocavities” in 2010. She earned her M.S. in Materials Science at Caltech in 2006 and her B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Florida in 2003. Dr. Hofmann is responsible for coordinating team communications, cross-institutional collaborations, and center activities and events.
