Marin Soljacic ’96, assistant professor in the Department of Physics, is one of two MIT faculty members to receive a 2008 MacArthur Fellowship, or “genius grant.” Soljaic discovered a method to wirelessly transmit 60 watts of power over 2 meters using strongly coupled magnetic resonance. His work holds important implications for understanding optical physics and the development of devices such as wireless transmitters.
