Jason Bochinski

Assistant Department Head and Assistant Research Professor

Riddick Hall 428


Professor Bochinski earned his BS in Physics from MIT and worked for several years in research and development for GTE Laboratories, Inc., before receiving a PhD in 2000 from the University of Oregon. Following postdoctoral research at JILA/University of Colorado, he joined NC State University as a Research Professor in 2005.




Area(s) of Expertise

Professor Bochinski's research interests are broad. He is a co-author of eight issued U. S. patents concerning electrodeless high intensity discharge lighting. His PhD work investigated dressed atom dynamics and lasing without inversion processes in bichromatic excitation fields. His postdoctoral research involved generation of cold polar molecules utilizing time-varying, spatially inhomogeneous, electric fields. Other work has explored fundamental characterization and spectroscopic measurements of cold alkaline earth-like atoms within magneto-optical traps. Most recently, his research has focused on the development of novel, nanoscale experiments such as sensitive optical and dielectric measurements, to study the dynamical processes of molecules on surfaces.
