James L. Gole
James L. Gole received his Ph.D. degree from Rice University and is a faculty member of the Schools of Physics and Mechanical Engineering at the Georgia Institute of Technology. He is the author of over 250 papers and 25 patents. He studies physical phenomena which fall at the interface of chemical and condensed matter physics and material science as these are tied to the development and modification of MEMS/NEMS devices and sensing/tagging/microreactor technology. The understanding of the physical phenomena which guide the development of these devices falls at the interface of chemical and condensed matter physics. Within this framework, Dr. Gole is concerned with (1) the development of “active” micro/nano filters; (2) the action of nanostructures as they are introduced to nonporous/microporous interfaces and their subsequent ability to enhance interaction and thus to promote an increased sensitivity and more efficient conversion and transduction at these interfaces; (3) the development of new, high yield, nanoscale, exclusive processes forming the novel interactive nanostructures necessary for this effective interface modification. Dr. Gole is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. He has been the recipient of the Sigma Xi Sustained Research Award, and the GIT Outstanding Research Author and Outstanding Undergraduate Research Mentor Awards. He is Vice-President elect of Sigma Xi at GIT.
