Dr. Eckhause first joined the department in 2001 as a research fellow measuring the vibrational and optical response of specially designed two-dimensional quantum structures. His other research interests have included induced superconductivity in semiconductors, and the far-infrared response of superconductor-semiconductor structures. His current work aims to improve the validation of delivery of ionizing radiation in medical linear accelerators. Since 2004 he has taught introductory physics courses where he focuses on encouraging peer instruction and developing exciting and relevant curricula.
