SCOTT JOHNSTON

SCOTT JOHNSTON is a graduate student in the applied physics department at Stanford University. He currently works on scanning microwave impedance microscopy and its application to new materials and devices. Systems of interest include ferroelectrics, photovoltaics, and phase change materials.

“OUR PARK AFM GIVES US THE STABILITY AND PRECISION THAT WE NEED TO PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF ULTRA-SENSITIVE NANOSCALE IMPEDANCE MEASUREMENTS.” AFM SCHOLARSHIP WINNER SCOTT JOHNSTON IN FRONT OF THE PARK AFM

How do you think your research will impact society in a positive way?

I hope that the insights we gain from probing the nanoscale electronic properties of applied materials will lead to improvements in their performance. This could include better surface acoustic devices from ferroelectrics with application to wireless communications, better phase change memory for computing, and of course better photovoltaics.
