Jungseok Chae

Jungseok Chae is a CNST/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Energy Research Group. He received a B.S. and a Ph.D. in Physics from Seoul National University, Seoul, Korea. For his doctoral research and as a CNST Postdoctoral Researcher, Chae worked in collaboration with the Joseph Stroscio and Nikolai Zhitenev, measuring the properties of graphene systems using low temperature scanning tunneling microscopy, and to developing methods to optimize low temperature atomic force microscopy. Chae is working with Andrea Centrone, developing measurement methods that combine infrared spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy to determine chemical composition with nanoscale resolution.
