Prof. Dickensheets' Students

Current Students:

    Steven Gates is a B.S. student working to characterize materials such as SU-8 for their use in deformable membrane mirrors for focus control in optical instruments.

    Sarah Lukes is working on her M.S. degree en route to a Ph.D. degree. Sarah is exploring new surface micromachined deformable membrane mirrors for focus control, and closed-loop control techniques to extend the performance of those devices.

    Mohammad Moghimi
    is a Ph.D. student developing new MEMS devices and fabrication techniques, especially for micro-optical components. Recently he has been working on bulk micromachined MEMS mirrors for focus control.

    Matt Strathman is a B.S. student working in the MMF to develop new dry etching techniques for deep etching of silicon, including experimentation with hard masks. He is also advancing our optical lithography capabilities.

    Xue Xiaohu
    is an M.S. student working on heterodyne detection confocal microscopy for in vivo skin imaging and cancer detection. 

    Chris Zhang
    is a B.S. student helping with electronics design and construction, supporting the confocal microscope development efforts.

Recent Students:

Chris Arrasmith recently received his M.S. degree while building a handheld confocal optical microscope for skin imaging and cancer detection. Chris is now with Alces Technology, Inc.

Erwin "Dan" Dunbar is a recent B.S. graduate who developed new methods for creating deformable membrane mirrors for focus control in optical instruments. Dan is now at the University of Colorado pursuing his Ph.D.

Prospective Students:
