B.S. Physics and Astronomy Physics


Jonas Brown received his BS degree in Physics and Astronomy Physics (2020) from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, USA, graduating with Comprehensive Honors. His undergraduate research was focused on growth of graphene on copper substrates and fabrication of van der Waals heterostructures. He also investigated the perturbed surface states of materials using STM. In 2021, he joined Professor Balandin's Nano Device Laboratory (NDL) at the University of California – Riverside to pursue PhD degree in Materials Science and Engineering. Presently, he works on nanofabrication and characterization of electronic devices implemented with low-dimensional charge-density-wave quantum materials.
