OSSC Vice President

-Brian Monacelli-

  Dr. Brian Monacelli has engineered a variety of optical systems, including infrared and radiometric systems, hyperspectral spectrometers, optical and electron-beam lithography systems, and nanostructured surfaces.  He gained experience in industry while earning optics degrees from Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology, the University of Rochester, and CREOL at the University of Central Florida.  As an optical engineer with Raytheon Space and Airborne Systems, he led the integration and alignment of hyperspectral sensors and other electro-optical systems.  He later designed, integrated, and characterized astronomical and high-energy adaptive optics and optical-control systems as a senior research scientist at the Optical Sciences Company (tOSC).  He is currently an optical engineer at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), where he works as an optical engineer on the SHERLOC instrument for the Mars 2020 rover, among other projects.

He also works as a photonics instructor at Irvine Valley College (IVC), where he teaches and serves as Principal Investigator on IVC's National Science Foundation (NSF)-funded Lasers and Photonics Technology Program.  He is an author of technician-level curricula in precision optics for the NSF.  He re-initiated the Optical Engineering column for the Optical Society’s Optics and Photonics News (OPN), and he now serves as Editor of the Engineering and Laboratory Notes Feature of Applied Optics.
