John Kohoutek is a CNST/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Nanofabrication Research Group. He received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Northwestern University. His doctoral research focused on modeling and measuring Casimir and optical forces in plasmonic devices, and on measuring the near-field and far-field optical characteristics of chip-scale optomechanical systems. John is working with Henri Lezec designing, fabricating, and characterizing plasmonic devices and metamaterials for nanoscale measurement applications.
