Glenn Holland

Glenn Holland is an Instrumentation Specialist in the Electron Physics Group. Glenn has a B.A. in Economics from the University of Maryland College Park. Prior to joining the CNST in 2009, Glenn spent 22 years supporting research at the Naval Research Laboratory, performing computer-aided design of experimental apparatus and instruments, including custom vacuum systems and prototype components, x-ray spectrometers, portable-ray systems, ion source systems. His designs have led to six U.S. Patents. At the CNST, Glenn assists the scientific staff with all phases of experiment and instrumentation design.
