Palash Banerjee


Palash Banerjee is a physics professor and the principal Investigator in the Applied Physics and Instrumentation Laboratory at UW-Stevens Point. Areas of interest for Professor Banerjee are nanoscale magnetism and techniques for scanning probe microscopy. He has conducted work funded through WSGS/NASA from 2020-2021, coincident counting of cosmic muons on the surface of the earth, with students Isaac Volkman and David Nielsen. In 2018, his research measured the quantum tunneling of electrons across a small gap, with UWSP student Alex Holmes.
