The Precision Laser Diagnostics Lab is headed by Prof. Greg Rieker and staffed by a fine bunch of researchers interested in energy, the environment, and lasers/optics. 

Rieker Lab Photo Fall 2021Our work is roughly divided into two categories:

  • Development of new laser-based sensors for measurements that are not currently possible in combustion, industrial, and environmental systems, and      
  • Application of laser sensor technologies to develop new understanding of and actively improve these systems.

Explore our research page for examples of this work.
