ECE Colloquium Series – Professor Taichi Goto

September 7, 2017 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

As part of the *Eleanore Hale Wilson Lecture Series, ECE is proud to present:

Micro Devices Using Magneto-optical Materials

Professor Taichi Goto
Toyohashi University of Technology
Host: Professor Beth Stadler



Transparent magnetic materials can be applied to several devices because of their quick responses and non-reciprocal effects. However, there is not many commercial application currently because of many challenging issues in development of the devices. Recently, we demonstrated magneto-optical applications including film– and integrated-typed magneto-optical isolators, magneto-optical spatial light modulators used for three dimensional displays or holographic memories, and magneto-optical Q-switches for high power lasers. In this talk, the example of the developed devices based on preparation technique of nano– and micrometer scale magneto-optical materials will be discussed.


Dr. Taichi Goto got his doctoral degree of engineering in 2011 at Toyohashi University of Technology. During his doctoral, he also worked as a Research fellow for Young Scientists in Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS). After this, he worked as a postdoc in Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for about two years. He became an assistant professor in Toyohashi University of Technology in 2013. He got additional post in Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) as a Precursory Research for Embryonic Science and Technology (PRESTO) researcher. From 2016 to now, he is also a visiting scholar in MIT. His specialized fields are magnetics, optics/photonics, magneto-optics, and magnonics/spintronics. He works on nano– and micrometer scale material fabrication and their device development.


*Established in 2009, the Eleanore Hale Wilson Fund supports engineering field leaders for travel to Minnesota to share their expertise and discoveries with University of Minnesota graduate students, faculty, and alumni. The fund also supports the receptions held in honor of each speaker.
