Joon Hyong Cho

Postdoctoral Researcher

Joon Hyong Cho is a NIST/UT Austin Postdoctoral Researcher in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division. He received BS and MS in Mechanical Engineering in Yonsei University, Korea, and a doctorate in the University of Texas at Austin. The title of PhD dissertation is "Measurement of the effect of growth quality and number of layers on the mechanical properties of graphene using a MEMS tensile tester". After obtaining his PhD degree, he joined Dr. Jason Gorman's Group at NIST as a postdoctoral researcher participating in a project related using resonator amplitude measurement techniques to gain a better understanding of what physics fundamentally limit the resolution of mode localized sensors.
