[Undergraduate Research Assistant] Building Optical Systems for Micro/Nanoscale Device Characterization - Electrical and Computer Engineering

Our group is working on exploring fundamental physics and new engineering of nanoscale movable solid-state structures and devices with resolution of 10^-15m (femto meter). To achieve this goal, we plan to build an optical characterization tool (i.e., optical interferometry), with a vacuum and electrical connections.

PI Jaesung Lee and students will first study basic concepts by collaborative reading of relevant papers and books. Subsequently, we will proceed to translate these theoretical foundations into practical design solutions by creating detailed drawings of the system. With a well-thought-out plan in place, we will then purchase necessary optical/vacuum/electrical components and build the system. This construction will take place on specialized air-floating optical tables, ensuring precision and stability throughout the process.
