International Women's Day - WIMER Webinar

On the occasion of "International Women's Day," the Women in Metrology and Energy Research (WIMER) group is delighted to extend an invitation to our upcoming webinar. Join us for an insightful session with Dr. Yanfei Yang, a distinguished researcher at NIST, as she shares her research journey at NIST and discusses her experiences as a co-founder of Graphene Waves.

Title: "Life is ONE unknown adventure, have fun!"

Dr. Yanfei Yang, originally from Chengdu, China, earned her PhD in Physics from Georgetown University in Washington DC. During her doctoral studies, she specialized in growing carbon nanotubes and creating numerous carbon nanotube field-effect transistors. Her dedication to uncovering signs of superconductivity in carbon nanotube samples spanned five years, culminating in her thesis defense showcasing potential evidence of its existence.
In 2012, Dr. Yang joined the Quantum Conductance project at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), focusing on the development of a quantum Hall resistance standard based on epitaxial graphene. After five years, she co-founded Graphene Waves to bring graphene technology to the electrical calibration industry. More recently, Dr. Yang has returned to NIST to further advance graphene-based resistance standards.
