We study the mechanics of electronic and optical materials. Our work has applications ranging from microelectronic
materials processing, to photovoltaics,
to nanoscale sensors and actuators.
Prospective graduate students may contact
Prof. Johnson for more information.
Due to the number of inquiries received, it may not be possible for
us to answer every request. Students
may also apply for admission to the graduate
programs in the Department of Mechanical Science & Engineering or
direct questions to the MechSE Graduate Admissions Coordinator, Ms. Katrina Hagler.
