Gensheng Wang

Physicist

Gensheng is an experimentalist working in the Cosmic Frontier.

Biography

Dr. Wang is a physicist working on astrophysical instrumentation. His major achievements have been the delivery of a large array of superconducting bolometers for the SPT-3G project and the delivery of absorber coupled superconducting bolometers for the SPT-pol project. His current work includes superconducting bolometric detector R&D for CMB-S4; physics and technology of superconducting detectors for astrophysics, nuclear physics, and particle physics; superconducting electronics for detector multiplexing; and laboratory instrument construction.
