Jason J. Gorman

Jason J. Gorman is a Project Leader in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division within the Physical Measurement Laboratory at NIST. He received a B.S. in Aerospace Engineering from Boston University, and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from The Pennsylvania State University, where he was supported by a National Science Foundation Graduate Research Traineeship. Jason joined NIST as a staff member after completing a National Research Council Postdoctoral Associateship. His research focuses on micro- and nanomechanical resonators, micro-acoustic devices, cavity optomechanics, and integrated nanophotonics, and their application to sensing, frequency control, nanofabrication and quantum information science.
