We are excited to have sponsored Disheng Chen, a Graduate Student at West Virginia University, for presenting his research at CLEO 2016 in San Jose, CA earlier this month. Disheng is a recipient of our Cold Science Exploration Awards Student Travel Grant.
Student Travel Grant - Disheng Chen
Posted 21 June, 2016
DESCRIPTION OF PRINCIPAL RESEARCH:
Disheng is studying resonant blinking behavior of InAs quantum dots while varying its local environment by applying a non-resonant laser at low temperature (4K). His paper "Characterization of the local charge environment of a single quantum dot via resonance fluorescence" explores the discrete spectral shifts experienced by quantum dots due to fluctuations in the local charge environment.
