Nemanja Jovanovic

Nemanja Jovanovic’s day job at Caltech’s Optical Observatory and Exoplanet Technology Laboratory is to develop extremely customised astronomical instruments for observatories, he told Electro Optics earlier this year. So what are the technologies he is looking to in developing those new instruments?
