Talk title: QTC@UMD
Walsworth leads an interdisciplinary research group that develops precision measurement tools and applies them to problems ranging from quantum physics and astrophysics to geoscience and biomedical imaging. Various start-up companies have spun out of the Walsworth lab, including Hyperfine Research, which is developing low-cost portable MRI machines, and Quantum Diamond Technology, Inc. (QDTI), which is commercializing quantum diamond sensors for biomedical diagnostics. Ron has also served on the Scientific Advisory Board of other tech companies and incubators, including Quantum-Si, 4Catalyzer, and Butterfly Network—which has brought to market a hand-held ultrasound that is read on an iPhone and costs less than $2,000.
Dr. Walsworth received his B.S. in Physics from Duke University in 1984, and he received his Ph.D. in Physics from Harvard University in 1991.
