Clint Novotny

Clint Novotny is a CNST/UMD Postdoctoral Researcher in the Energy Research Group. He received a B.S. in Applied and Engineering Physics from Cornell University and a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the University of California, San Diego. His doctoral research focused on developing techniques to characterize and grow indium phosphide nanowires for use in optoelectronics. Prior to joining the CNST, he worked for BAE Systems, Inc., where he designed packaging and electronics to incorporate optically triggered semiconductor switches into high power microwave systems. Clint is working with Fred Sharifi on measuring the thermoelectric properties of one-dimensional semiconductors.
