Sandia’s first inbound Faculty Loan joint appointee Sandia’s first inbound Faculty Loan joint appointee, Matt Eichenfield started his career at Sandia in 2011 as a Harry S. Truman Postdoctoral Fellow in National Security Science & Engineering. He then transitioned to a staff member in 2014 and was appointed to the level of Distinguished Staff in 2020. Matt is joining University of Arizona (UA) as an Associate Professor and the inaugural SPIE (the International Society for Optics and Photonics) Endowed Chair in Optical Sciences for UA in August 2022 and will hold an inbound joint appointment with Sandia. Matt will build alignment between Sandia and UA in quantum information, photonic, radio frequency communications, and sensing technologies. While at Sandia, Eichenfield has been an essential part of numerous acclaimed projects. He was tapped to lead a DOE-funded effort at Sandia in 2019 to work on quantum transduction and buffering between microwave quantum information systems and “flying optical photons in fibers,” collaborated with a team that patented a hybrid semiconductor-piezoacoustic radiofrequency device in 2020, and helped to create the world’s smallest and best acoustic amplifier in 2021.
