Emily Bittle


Emily Bittle is a staff physicist in the Nanoscale Processes and Measurements Group in the Nanoscale Device Characterization Division at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). She received her MS and PhD in physics from the University of Kentucky where she  used infrared absorption to study dynamic charge transport in organic semiconductor transistors. Since joining NIST in 2013, she has worked on refining understanding of device and charge carrier transport physics in organic semiconductors through advanced electrical measurements. She was awarded the Department of Commerce Bronze Medal Award in 2017 for improving the reliability of a key device measurement in organic electronics. Her current research interests include device physics, exciton dynamics, and charge transport physics in organic semiconductors.
