Guy A. DeRose
Associate Director of Technical Operations
Kavli Nanoscience Institute
California Institute of Technology
Guy DeRose came to the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) from the Air Force Research Laboratory in 1994 and is now the Associate Director of Technical Operations for the Kavli Nanoscience Institute (KNI). Located at Caltech, the KNI emphasizes research in nanobiotechnology, nanophotonics, and large-scale integration of nanosystems. A core mission of the KNI is to push the state-of-the-art beyond current capabilities in nanofabrication. Dr. DeRose’s research includes using electron-beam lithography and anisotropic etching to fabricate semiconductor lasers and nanophotonic systems. Prior to joining Caltech, Guy earned his B.S. in Physics from Indiana University of Pennsylvania and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Physics from Case Western Reserve University. His graduate research used X-ray absorption techniques with synchrotron radiation to study the mechanical properties of thin metal films.
Co-chairing the 2009 International Conference on Nanofabrication Technologies, Devices and Applications (NanoFab 2009).
