Current Group Members

Chris Arrasmith

is a research engineer (M.S. 2008) assisting with design and construction of an active/adaptive two-photon microscope, and advancing the state of the art for MEMS focus control mirrors. Chris is the founder of Revibro Optics, LLC in Bozeman, MT.

Krishna Chattergoon

is an M.S. student doing numerical modeling and analysis, and dynamic characterization of high-speed deformable mirrors.

Ryan Downey

is an undergraduate student (Electrical Engineering, class of 2016), developing metrology tools and control software for MEMS focus and aberration correcting mirrors.

Warren Foster

is an undergraduate student (Computer Engineering, class of 2017, with minors in Mathematics and English Literature) developing metrology for high speed characterization of MEMS aberration compensation mirrors.

Seth Kreitinger

is an undergraduate student (Computer Engineering, class of 2016), developing metrology tools and building optical instruments, including a millimeter dimension color camera to be embedded in a handheld dermatology microscope.

Tianbo Liu

is a Ph.D. student developing a new MEMS 3D x-y-z beam scanning mirror for a handheld dermatology microscope.

Chris Zhang

is a Ph.D. student building a MEMS-based active/adaptive two-photon microscope.

Recent Students

Michael Heger

is an undergraduate student (Electrical Engineering, class of 2016), who worked to construct a mm-dimension color camera to be embedded in a handheld dermatology microscope. Michael is preparing for the MCATs and hoping to attend medical school.

Sarah Lukes

completed her Ph.D. degree in 2015, developing surface micromachined deformable membrane mirrors for focus control. Sarah is the founder of Agile Focus Designs in Bozeman, MT.

Mohammad Moghimi

completed his Ph.D. degree in 2013, developing bulk micromachined MEMS mirrors for high-speed focus control. Mohammad is now a post-doctoral scholar at the University of Wisconsin in Madison.
