Professor Kim Michelle Lewis
Dr. Kim Michelle Lewis is an Associate Professor of Physics at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY. Her research interests include investigating electronic transport properties of a single or a few molecules for molecular switches, diodes, and photovoltaics; examining temperature dependent resisitivity of thin films; and studying electrical characteristics of biological systems. Experimental techniques include: conductive atomic force microscopy, scanning tunneling microscopy (STM), electrochemistry STM, molecular break junction (MBJ), cyclic voltammetry, low temperature and magnetic field measurements, inelastic electron tunneling spectroscopy (IETS), electromigration, and electron beam lithography.
