Carmen Menoni

University Distinguished Professor Menoni’s research bridges from optics to material science, studying metal oxides for the engineering of interference coatings for high-power lasers.

Menoni is also actively involved in using bright soft x-ray laser beams for applications such as nanoscale morphological and compositional imaging.

Menoni holds faculty positions in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Department of Chemistry, and the School of Biomedical Engineering at Colorado State University.

Menoni is Fellow of the Institute of Electrical & Electronic Engineers (IEEE), the Optical Society of America, the American Physical Society and the International Society for Optics and Photonics. She is founding editor and current editor-in-chief for the IEEE Photonics Journal.

Menoni received the IEEE Distinguished Lecturer Award from the IEEE Photonics Society , touring the world giving lectures on her work.

Menoni received her B.S. in electrical engineering from the University of Rosario in 1978 and received her Ph.D. in physics from Colorado State in 1987.
