Luke Schmidt

I am an Associate Research Scientist in the Texas A&M University Astronomical Instrumentation Lab. I have worked on a variety of optical and near-infrared instruments (0.32-2.5 μm) including spectrographs, imagers, interferometers, and calibration systems. I have experience with optical design, vacuum and cryogenic systems, detector systems, control electronics, and software development. I also frequently mentor undergraduate and graduate students working on projects in the lab.

I am currently Co-PI on three NSF grants (NSF MRI - 1920312, NSF AAG - 1715865, and NSF ATI - 2009430).
