Dr. David Nolte is the Edward M. Purcell Distinguished Professor of Physics and Anatomy and Director of the Digital Adaptive Optics and Biophotonics Group at Purdue University. Dr. Nolte received his B.A. in Physics from Cornell University and Ph.D. in Physics from the University of California, Berkeley. Dr. Nolte was received the 2016 Outstanding Commercialization Award. His current research focuses on Biological Compact Discs (BioCDs), holographic optical coherence imaging (HOCI), and laser machining using two-photon polymerization. He uses laser interferometry, nonlinear optics, coherent optics, and Fourier optics to study aspects of biological systems from the nanoscale molecular level to the macroscale tissue level.
