Feng Zhou (IntlAssoc)

Feng Zhou is a Research Associate working in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division of the Physical Measurement Laboratory (PML) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). He received a B.S. and Ph.D. in Optical Engineering from Huazhong University of Science and Technology, China. His doctoral research focused on developing an integrated atom chip for trapping and manipulating single cold atoms. He is now working with Thomas LeBrun in developing and characterizing an optomechanical accelerometer with a chip-scale hemispherical Fabry-Pérot optical cavity.
