Hans Robinson

Dr. Hans Robinson left his native Sweden to attend graduate school at Boston University, where he obtained his Ph.D. in Physics in 2000. After a stint as a research scientist at UCLA, he arrived at Virginia Tech in 2005, and is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Physics. Dr. Robinson’s research interests are in the area of nano-optics and nanophotonics. He is particularly interested in the physics and applications of nanoparticles (particles smaller than 100 nm, or 1/1000 the width of a human hair) made of noble metals such as silver and gold.
