Research Interests

During my summer in the Blake lab, my research is focused on building a coherent ABCD terahertz apparatus with the goal of testing spintronic terahertz emitters (STEs) fabricated in the Kavli Nanoscience Institute at Caltech. In addition to testing the thin films and comparing them to commercial emitters, I will also be analyzing various carbonaceous chondrite samples to generate high precision optical constant data.
