Mingkang Wang

Mingkang Wang is a PML/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Division. He received his B.S. in Physics from the Beijing Normal University and his Ph.D. in Physics from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. His Ph.D. research includes measurement of Casimir force between unconventional geometries and related theory, measurement of optical stress on metamaterials and research of nonlinear dynamics in micro-electromechanical systems (MEMs). Mingkang is currently working with Vladimir Aksyuk on developing techniques for high sensitivity and high temporal resolution photonic atomic force microscopy (AFM), researching the nonlinear dynamics in MEMs and exploring the frequency stability limit of MEMs.
