Neil M. Zimmerman (Fed)

Neil M. Zimmerman works as an experimental physicist at the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) in the Nanoscale Processes and Measurements Group. Much of his past work has focused on research in silicon single electron devices to build a standard of the electrical current based on the elementary charge, and for use as qubits in the solid state. He is currently working on helping develop the Quantum Anomalous Hall Effect as a resistance standard.  He has authored/co-authored about 87 peer-reviewed articles, has an h-index of 26, and has won several awards including the NIST Condon Award.
