Zimo Zhao

DPhil Student

TEL: 07857 350694
COLLEGE: Somerville College


Zimo graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Electronics and Electrical Engineering with First Class Honours from the University of Glasgow in 2020. His final year project involved constructing and evaluating a Terahertz measuring system with a 140GHz – 300GHz vector network analyser (VNA) which could generate 3D images of concealed objects and characterize the performance of Terahertz antennas. Previously, he has published papers about the performance of that system.

Zimo joined the Soft Matter Photonics group in October 2020 and is supervised by Dr. Stephen Morris and Prof. Steve Elston. His major research area is to study the characteristics and applications of liquid crystals in microwaves and terahertz and the fabrication of liquid crystal antennas using polyjet printing. He is also a graduate student at Somerville College.
