Diego Perez

Diego Perez is a PML/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division. He received a B.S. in Physics from the Universidad Nacional de San Luis in Argentina and a Ph.D. in Physics from the Instituto Balseiro, Universidad Nacional de Cuyo in Argentina. His Ph.D. research included developing and implementation of a high-sensitive micromechanical magnetometer to study phase transitions in superconducting vortex systems and in the design of MEMS devices used to measure small forces. Diego is currently working with Vladimir Aksyuk to develop techniques for displacement-controlled atomic force microscopy (AFM), nonlinear dynamics in MEMS devices and on novel Casimir effect measurements in nanoscale devices.
