Jeffrey Schwartz

Jeffrey Schwartz is a postdoctoral researcher in the Physical Measurement Laboratory at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and in the Institute for Research in Electronics and Applied Physics (IREAP) at the University of Maryland. He works in the Nanoscale Spectroscopy Group with Andrea Centrone to advance the capabilities photothermal induced resonance (PTIR) spectroscopy, extending this technique to a wide variety of measurement environments, materials, and spectral regimes. As part of this effort, one of Jeffrey’s goals is to apply ultrasensitive nanophotonic probes to measure photothermal effects on even smaller quantities of materials and at higher throughputs than presently achievable. Previously, Jeffrey’s research has focused on leveraging molecular self-assembly for the purposes of nanofabrication and to engineer the surface properties of novel materials.
