About Dr. Wilson:

Dr. Robert Wilson is a Senior Research Associate in the Department of Materials Science & Engineering at Stanford University. His current research focuses on magneto-nano sensors and the use of nanoimprint lithography based fabrication for the creation and chemical functionalization of nanostructures and nanoparticles made from a variety of materials, including multilayer magnetic films. Dr. Wilson has been involved in nanotechnology research since his pioneering efforts at IBM Research used Scanning Tunneling Microscopy to first reveal the atomic corrugation and structure of close packed metal surfaces and the internal structure of individual molecules. He has also contributed and retains interests in diverse areas including magnetic resonance, positron annihilation, various microscopies, surface analysis methods, and thin film deposition and patterning techniques. Dr. Wilson has published over 60 papers, holds 9 issued patents, and received many IBM awards for his research and patents. Dr. Wilson received his B.S. and Ph.D. in physics from UC Berkeley in 1972 and 1982, respectively, and his M.S. in physics from University of Chicago  in 1974.
