  • Brief Bio

    Dr. Luis Rodriguez de Marcos received his Theoretical Physics degree (2008) and his master’s degree in Mathematical-Physics (2010) from Universidad Complutense de Madrid, in Spain. During his PhD with the coatings group at the Spanish Research Council (CSIC), he worked in the determination of optical constants of materials and in the development of optical coatings for the far UV (FUV) and extreme UV (EUV). He completed his PhD in 2015 and then, he moved to Singapore in 2016 where he joined the Singapore Synchrotron Light Source as a beamline scientist. There, aside from working happily 23h per day in the EUV characterization of mask blanks for the next generation of photolithography systems, he found some free time to play with the use of metamaterials in optics, and play soccer, his great passion. After a short stay at the Tohoku University (Japan) early in 2019, where aside from eating tons of Sushi he did a small research on gratings for X-rays interferometry, Luis joined The Catholic University of America in April 2019 as assistant scientist. He is nowadays supporting the coatings laboratory (code 551), and his research efforts at GSFC are motivated to increase the reflectivity of FUV mirrors. He also joined the Grey team of the GSFC soccer league.
