Biography
Dr. Mathews joined the EECS Department in 2003, after doing research and development in the private sector for more than 10 years. His previous work included research on solid state radiation imaging systems, optical data storage systems, and laser micro-fabrication of microelectronic and microfluidic structures. In 2005, Dr. Mathews established the Laser Micro-Fabrication Laboratory here at Catholic University. Current work in the Laser Micro-Fabrication Laboratory includes research on: Artificial Electromagnetic Materials and Frequency Selective Surfaces, MEMS Devices, Laser Direct- Write and Non Lithographic Patterning, Thin Film Magnetic Sensors, Detection of High Explosives.

Dr. Mathews also works part-time at the US Naval Research Laboratory in the Electronic and Optical Materials and Devices Section (Code 6364). In 2009, Dr. Mathews was promoted to Associate Professor. Also in 2009, Dr. Mathews created a new program within the EECS Department, on Alternative and Renewable Energy. This new program includes course on: Introduction to Alternative Energy, Photovoltaics, Gas-Electric Hybrid and Electric Vehicles, WInd Power, Batteries, Fuel Cells, and Energy Storage.
