Biography

Mauskopt has a joint appointment at Arizona State University in the School of Earth and Space Exploration and the Department of Physics. His background is in primarily experimental cosmology - in particular designing and building new types of instruments for measuring signals from the most distant objects in the universe. However, he has broad interests that include solid state physics, atmospheric science and quantum communications and cryoptography. He particularily enjoys the opportunity to pursue interdisciplinary projects within the ASU community as well as collaborating with researchers at other universities and research institutions such as Caltech/JPL, University of Pennsylvania, Columbia University, NIST boulder, Cardiff University (UK) and the Neel Institute and IRAM observatory (France).

Before starting at ASU in 2012, Professor Mauskopf was a professor of experimental astrophysics at Cardiff University in the U.K. since 2000 where he helped to start a world-leading group in the area of astronomical instrumentation for terahertz (THz) frequencies.

Education
  • Ph.D. Physics, University of California-Berkeley 1997
  • M.A. Physics, University of California-Berkeley 1997
  • B.A. Physics, Harvard University 1990
Research Interests

I have a broad range of research interests including:

  • Superconducting devices and circuits: filters and resonators, kinetic inductance parametric amplifiers, kinetic inductance detectors, superconducting bolometers
  • cosmic microwave background: measurements of anisotropies in the cosmic microwave background including primordial temperature and polarization anisotropies and secondary temperature anisotropies from the interaction of the cosmic microwave background photons with ionized particles in galaxies and galaxy clusters.
  • large-scale structure: measurements of the distribution of matter in the universe on size scales from galaxy cluster scales (few Megaparsecs) to the size of the observable universe (~few Gigaparsecs).
  • cosmology: using measurements of the cosmic microwave background and large scale structure to better understand the evolution of the universe and the properties of dark matter, dark energy and neutrinos.
  • Metamaterials: electromagnetic modelling, design, fabrication and testing of metamaterials for terahertz frequencies such as artificial dielectrics, negative index of refraction materials and artificial birefringent materials.
