Brian J. Roxworthy

Brian J. Roxworthy is an NRC Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nanofabrication Research Group. He received a B.S. (with Honors) in Mechanical Engineering and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. His doctoral work focused on using plasmonic bowtie nanoantennas for optical trapping of particles and for enhancing optical-frequency magnetic fields. Brian is working with Vladimir Aksyuk developing high-speed motion metrology and nano-manipulation tools based on plasmonic devices.
