About

This is Goeppert’s page dedicated to Nanopore Sensor Applications, Water Monitoring, Energy Storage, Quantum metrology, Atomic Chips and other projects focused on applying the recent fundamental physics discoveries such as cold atomic gases (Bose Einstein Condensates) on a chip. The other address for the page is http://www.gppert.com.

Goeppert direction today is led by our Senior Scientists. Dr. David Niedzwiecki leads a team of scientists including Dr. Zehui Xia and Dr. Brian DiPaolo.

David, Zehui and Brian.

Here is a recent interview with David. https://www.pennovation.upenn.edu/news/meet-innovator-david-niedzwiecki-sr-scientist-goeppert

What is your current position at Goeppert and how long have you been with the company? 
Senior Scientist. I am the principal investigator for Goeppert’s SBIR grants from NASA and the NIH. I have been at Goeppert since its founding. 

A few more facts about David: What motivates you to do what you do? What keeps you going?  Curiosity is my most consistent motivator, but to keep going I use whatever I can: ambition, social pressure, coffee… 

What’s a piece of advice you got that stayed with you? 
You need Knowledge, Resources, and Time to succeed. You can use knowledge to gain resources. You can use your resources to hire knowledge. You can spend your time gaining both knowledge and resources. But you never get more time, so use it wisely. 

What is your favorite thing to do in your free time? 
Since COVID started I’ve been playing a lot more piano.

Goeppert LLC was founded by Physics Professor Marija Drndic in 2017, and from then on it has branched out. Prof. Drndic’s original intent was: 1) to help make the experimental components and latest scientific discoveries and concepts more readily and quickly available to other researchers and industry, and 2) to help transfer newer fundamental concepts from physics and accelerate the pace of scientific research and technology development. Dr. David Niedzwiecki (PI) joined Goeppert as the Senior Scientist in 2018, followed by Dr. Zehui Xia and Dr. Brian DiPaolo in 2019 and others.

Goeppert focuses on quality work with distinct impact on advancement of science and technology. We work alongside others in industry and academia and push the frontiers of scientific innovation. One example of our small contribution includes advancement of nanopore sensors that Goeppert distributes to other researchers to facilitate their research work.

The Goeppert team has rich hands-on experience with nanofabrication, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and nanopore measurements, and nanoelectronics measurements and previously addressed important nanopore technology questions. Goeppert has acquired growing experience with nanofabrication and materials growth and has been equipped with more labor and instruments as of the establishment.
