Adam Steele is a CNST/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Electron Physics Group in the CNST. He received a B.S. in Physics from Carnegie-Mellon University, and a Ph.D. in Physics from the Georgia Institute of Technology under the guidance of Professor Michael Chapman. Adam’s doctoral research focused on laser trapping and cooling of singly ionized barium and triply ionized thorium ions. He is currently working with Jabez McClelland on a new type of focused ion beam microscope that uses trapped, ultracold atoms for its source.
