Diana Gamzina joined SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory in January of 2017.
She was at the UC Davis millimeter-wave research group for over 8 years prior to that leading research and development programs in millimeter wave and terahertz vacuum electronics.
At SLAC, she has focused on expanding SLAC mission to include development of advanced materials for vacuum electron devices and enabling miniaturization of accelerators and RF sources. Her expertise includes mechanics of materials' interaction with electromagnetic waves, micro to nano scale as well as additive material synthesis techniques, high current density nano-composite cathodes, multiscale thermo-mechanical design and analysis, and development of compact high frequency RF sources.
Enabling design driven material microstructure for the next generation of RF vacuum electronic devices is her personal career goal.
