Ning Tang, Ph.D., Consultant

Ning Tang has been with Colin Gordon and Associates as a consultant primarily working in the field of structural dynamics and vibration control. He has extensive skills in implementing sophisticated finite element methods and applying advanced dynamics techniques to predict vibrations of structures. He has over 7 years of extensive research/industrial experience in fracture and fatigue, heat transfer, experimental mechanics, plates and shell, vibrations and control, composite materials, elasticity and viscoelasticity. His background also includes hands-on work with equipment for electron microscopy and semiconductor photolithography.

His consulting work includes: structural design and evaluation; vibration measurements and monitoring; identification of dynamical properties; evaluation of isolation systems; and tool pedestal design and testing.

Ning recently received his Ph.D. after research that focused on next-generation lithographic masks. This included the development of a new method to determine the intrinsic stresses of freestanding thin films in microelectronics. He also designed and conducted sag tests of an advanced optical reticle/pellicle film as an experimental substantiation of the method.
