Wesley Sims, Ph.D.
- Interim Department Chair, Physics
- Assistant Professor
Dr. Wesley Sims is an assistant professor in applied physics at Morehouse College with an interest in strengthening optics and materials science, combining interdisciplinary training in physics, engineering and biomedical research.
His background includes research experiences in breast cancer and molecular genetics, characteristics of spectroscopy for laser applications, and early breast cancer detection through the use of microwave imaging.
Dr. Sims’s current research interests encompass cross-phase optics, micro/nano optics fabrication, optical quadrature microscopy, extreme ultraviolet lithography, terahertz imaging, and nanostructure characterization.
He has engaged in work including laser applications such as interferometric lithography of diffractive materials and fabrication of plasmonic nanostructures, and has worked with phase change materials (PCM) for switchable photonic devices which involved characterization of asymmetric split ring resonators in the THz region.
