Jeffrey Bokor received the B.S. degree in electrical engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1975, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in electrical engineering from Stanford University in 1976 and 1980, respectively. From 1980 to 1993, he was at AT&T Bell Laboratories where he did research on novel sources of ultraviolet and soft X-ray coherent radiation, advanced lithography, picosecond optoelectronics, semiconductor physics, surface physics, MOS device physics, and integrated circuit process technology. He held management positions as head of the Laser Science Research Department at Bell Labs in Holmdel, NJ, from 1987 to 1990, and head of the ULSI Technology Research Department at Bell Labs in Murray Hill, NJ, from 1990 to 1993.
Dr. Bokor was appointed Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California at Berkeley in 1993, with a joint appointment at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL). In 2004, he was appointed as Deputy Director for Science at the Molecular Foundry at LBNL, a major new nanoscale science research center. His current research activities include novel techniques for nanofabrication, new devices for nanoelectronics, quantum information processing, extreme ultraviolet lithography, optical metrology, and Fourier optics. He is a fellow of IEEE, APS, and OSA.
