Josh Pomeroy is an experimental physicist at the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) in the Atomic Scale Devices Group. He performs fundamental research that seeks to understand how improvements in existing materials, device fabricated from those materials, and their processing can improve the performance of systems used in technology and metrology. In recent years, he has focused on high yield and simplified schemes for tunnel barriers and devices to promote the development of solid state quantum information sciences (QIS). Two main thrust areas of this work involve 1) designing measurements and devices to better understand how coherence is preserved through enrichment and purifications, and, 2) determining whether high-quality (low defect density) metal oxides can be used in conjunction with semiconductor quantum devices to simplify control or facilitate transduction to superconducting systems. Dr. Pomeroy graduated from Cornell University with a M.S. and Ph.D. in Physics and received his undergraduate degree in physics from Boston University.
