Danna Rosenberg

Danna RosenbergGraduate School: Stanford University, PhD in physics

Current Position and Employer: Technical staff, Lincoln Laboratory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

The Rutgers physics experience: The physics department at Rutgers provided me with a strong base to go to graduate school and have a career in physics.

Mentor: Terry Matilsky was a fantastic mentor, and his creativity and passion helped inspire me to pursue a career in physics.

Life after Rutgers: I did a postdoc at the National Institute of Standards and Technology and then accepted a position as a technical staff member at Los Alamos National Laboratory before moving to MIT Lincoln Laboratory.

During my postdoc my colleagues and I were able to improve the detection efficiency of a type of single photon detector to 89 percent, a record at the time. We went on to use these detectors in a quantum communication system, setting a new record there as well.

Year graduated Rutgers: 1996
