Dr. JinKyu So

Project
Metamaterial Light Nano-sources Driven by Electron Beams

Short CV
Dr. So obtained a BSc in Physics from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Korea in 2001. His PhD was on the interaction between metamaterials and convection electrons in the terahertz frequency range and was awarded by the Seoul National University, Korea in 2009. He is now a Research Fellow in the university's Optoelectronics Research Centre. His current research interests are in the interaction between metamaterials and electron beams.
