Yizi Xu

Yizi Xu earned a BS in Physics from Fudan University, Shanghai, China in 1984.  In 1985 he came to the US on a generous research assistantship from Stanford University to do graduate studies in the Applied Physics Department, Stanford University.  He finished his Ph.D thesis in 1992, under the supervision of Professor Mac Beasley, on electron tunneling and inelastic hopping through amorphous Silicon thin films.  In his professional researchcareer Yizi had worked at Cornell University and at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), Boulder, on projects related to high-temperature superconductors, electron conduction through metal/insulator or metal/semiconductor interfaces and associated low-frequency noise phenomena, and the fabrication and testing of superconducting integrated circuits and devices for radiation detection.  More recently, he has been enthusiastic about the new and exciting field of micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS).  When he walked into Prof. Victor Bright's group in Mechanical Engineering Department, he felt right at home with its unique blend of physics and intricate mechanical engineering.  

Yizi is married with two children.
