Prof. Vladimir Bulovic

Vladimir Bulovic, Ph.D. is the Professor of Electrical Engineering at MIT leading the Organic and Nanostructured Electronics laboratory, directing the MIT Microsystems Technology Laboratories, co-directing the MIT-eni Solar Frontiers Center and co-heading the MIT Energy Studies Program. Bulovic’s research interests include studies of physical properties of organic and organic/inorganic nanocrystal composite thin films and structures, and development of novel nanostructured optoelectronic devices. He an author of over 120 research articles (cited over 8000 times) and an inventor of 50 U.S. patents in areas of light emitting diodes, lasers, photovoltaics, photodetectors, chemical sensors, programmable memories, and micro-electro machines, the majority of which have been licensed and utilized by both start-up and multinational companies. He is a founder of QD Vision, Inc. of Watertown, Mass., which is producing quantum dot optoelectronic components, of Kateeva, Inc. of Menlo Park, Calif., which is focused on development of printed organic electronics, and Ubiquitous Energy, Inc. which is developing nanostructured solar technologies. Prof. Bulovic received his M.S.  from Columbia University in 1993 and his Ph.D. from Princeton University in 1998. The recipient of numerous technical and teaching awards, in 2009 he was awarded the Margaret MacVicar Faculty Fellowship, MIT’s highest teaching honor, and in 2011 he was named the Faculty Research Innovation Fellow for excellence in research and international recognition. Most recently he shared this year’s SEMI Award for North America in recognition of his contribution to commercialization of quantum dot technology.
