The Caltech Nanofabrication Group woud like to congratulate Jingqing Huang on her successful thesis defense!
Jingqing's research explored the ultimate scaling limits of semiconductor lasers, utilizing novel structures and developing ultra-high precision fabrication techniques to combat the oppresive limits imposed by thermal resistance, optimize directional out-coupling efficiency, enable continuous-wave room temperature lasing, and provide a future path for integrated, electrically-pumped nanolasers. Her work on metal-bonded photonic crystal lasers and cavities defined in optically thick slabs will prove invaluable in the years to come and am important milestone in our drive for smaller, faster optoelectronics. We will sorely miss her intelligence, enthusiasm, mentorship, wit and humor in the lab, and although we weigh her departure with a heavy heart, we anticipate great things in her future. Best wishes to JQ in all of her endeavors, and we can all look forward to catching up at conference or perhaps in the high Sierras!
Are you an undergraduate interested in doing cutting-edge summer research in nanofabrication? Apply for a SURF with the nanofabrication group! Kate Finigan () will be collecting applications before January 23, 2012. Please have a brief resume and statement of interest prepared. Completion of APh 9 or prior microfabrication experience strongly recommended.
The Caltech Nanofabrication Group welcomes two new graduate researchers this fall, William "Max" Jones in Electrical Engineering and Harish Ravi in Physics. We'reall excited to have them here and see what develops!
Congratulations to Zhenyu Li, who has taken an Assistant Professorship at George Washington University. Prof. Zhenyu's group integrates nanophotonics with microfluidics, creating optofluidic devices for biology and medicine. In particular, he's interested in single cell analysis for stem cell and cancer research and portable integrated biosensors for point-of-care diagnostics, environmental monitoring, and food safety inspection.

Congratulations to David Henry on his position at Sandia National Labs!
Saurabh Vyawahare has joined the Princeton Physical Sciences-Oncology Center as Director of the Microfluidics Laboratory! We'd all like to congratulate Saurabh on the new position and wish him luck in his future endeavors!
Congratulations to Mike Shearn on his position in the Microdevices Laboratory at JPL! Mike will bring his extensive device fabrication experience up the road to their cleanroom in La Canada-Flintridge, and eventually into the far reaches of our galaxy when their sensors get deployed.
We hope he'll continue to drop by the KNI once in awhile!
