Professor Magnusson received the Ph.D. degree in Electrical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He spent several years in industry and then joined the faculty of UT-Arlington. He served as Professor and Chair of the Department of Electrical Engineering from 1998-2001, and he was Professor and Head of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at the University of Connecticut from 2001-2006 and Professor from 2006-2008. In 2008, he returned to UT-Arlington to accept positions as the Texas Instruments Distinguished University Chair in Nanoelectronics and as Professor of Electrical Engineering. He currently directs the UT-Arlington Nanophotonics Device Group. He has published more than 400 journal and conference papers and holds more than 30 patents. He is a Fellow of the Optical Society of America and SPIE, a Life Fellow of IEEE, and a Charter Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors.

Current theoretical and experimental research addresses periodic nanostructures, nanolithography, nanophotonics, nanoelectronics, nanoplasmonics, and optical bio- and chemical sensors.



Professor Magnusson is the Co-founder and Chief Technical Officer of Resonant Sensors Incorporated, a company that provides next-generation optical sensor systems for pharmaceutical and biotech customers.
