Thomas Michels is a CNST/TUI Graduate Student Researcher in the Nanofabrication Research Group. He received a B.S. in Microtechnology from University of Gelsenkirchen, Germany and an M.Sc. in Nano- and Microtechnology from the Ilmenau University of Technology. His doctoral research, in collaboration with the CNST, focuses on fabricating self-actuated cantilevers for atomic force microscopy with microcavity optical readout. Thomas is working with Vladimir Aksyuk designing, building, and testing cantilevers that integrate optical detection with electrostatic and thermal actuation.
