Jared Strait is a scientist in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division. He received a B.A. in Physics from Williams College and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University. For his doctoral research, he used terahertz spectroscopy to study the ultrafast electron dynamics and conductive properties of low-dimensional materials and plasmonic microstructures. Jared is working with Amit Agrawal and Henri Lezec to develop ultrafast spectroscopic techniques for the investigation of novel materials and plasmonic devices and to probe the nature of momentum transfer in light-metal interactions.
