Michael Roukes


Robert M. Abbey Professor of Physics, Applied Physics, and Bioengineering

Researchers in Michael Roukes's group are working to explore new physics at the nanoscale, and to apply this knowledge to realizing advanced tools for the biomedical and life sciences. The group's current focus is on (a) massively-parallel mapping of brain activity enabled by very-large-scale integration of nanoelectronic and nanophotonic devices, (b) single-molecule mass spectrometry and molecular analysis enabled by arrays of nanoelectromechanical systems (NEMS), and (c) on the fundamental physics of NEMS.
