Robert C. Davis
Associate Professor of Physics and Astronomy
N215 ESC, Brigham Young University

Teaching : A large part of my teaching efforts are on the development of laboratory courses for undergraduate physics majors. These labs use fun contemporary experimental physics topics as a vehicle for developing strong experimental skills in undergraduate researchers. 

Current teaching assignments : Physics 108 , Physics 145

Current Research: With collaborators at BYU and elsewhere I am working at the intersection of nanoscale science and engineering. My main research thrust is using chemically synthesized and biologically derived nanostructures as templates for self-aligned assembly of micro- and nanoscale optical, mechanical, and electrical devices.
