Dr. Jason G. Zeibel, Physicist at US Army RDECOM CERDEC Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate
Dr. Zeibel is a physicist at the US Army RDECOM CERDEC Night Vision and Electronic Sensors Directorate (NVESD) at Fort Belvoir, VA. He is the head of the Camera Technology Branch in NVESD's Science and Technology Division. In this role, he directs the test and evaluation of emerging camera technologies, to include image intensifiers, Si CMOS cameras, Shortwave Infrared (SWIR) sensors, photon counting thermal systems, and uncooled longwave infrared (LWIR) bolometer systems. He was previously head of the hyperspectral sensor development for NVESD's Science and Technology Division, where he directed the testing and evaluation of currently fielded and developmental hyperspectral sensors. Dr. Zeibel received a B.S. in Physics and Mathematics from Duke University (1997). He then entered into graduate work at the University of Virginia, receiving a M.A. in Physics (2001) and a Ph.D. in Atomic Physics (2003). His dissertation studied the use of ultrashort infrared and terahertz laser pulses to manipulate electron wave functions.
