Focusing mainly on optical spectroscopy and electron transport at the nanometer scale, Prof. Cronin's research spans a broad range of topics from bio-sensors to single molecule MEMS devices from nanowires and carbon nanotubes. For more details see his research web page .
Ph.D. in Physics, 2002, MIT, Cambridge, MA .
Prof. Cronin received his Ph.D in physics at MIT in 2002, after working in Professor Mildred Dresselhaus' research group measuring the transport properties of nanowires and quantum well structures. He subsequently conducted his post-doctoral research measuring single molecule optical spectroscopy and electron transport of individual carbon nanotubes at Harvard University with Professor Michael Tinkham.
