Professor • Vice Chair
Physics
Office: DUAN F827 Research Interests: My research follows several lines of study, including fluctuation measurements in plasmas, the relationship of turbulent quantities to cross-field plasma transport, and the microphysics of dust impacts which drive the dusty plasma equilibria. My diagnostic work on larger devices consists of data analysis and velocimetry analysis from a number of tokamak diagnostic instruments. This work is performed in collaboration with PPPL (NSTX), UC Davis (microwave...

Michael Ritzwoller

Professor • Chair • Director - Center for Imaging the Earth's Interior (CIEI)
Physics
Research Interests: Professor Ritzwoller is an observational seismologist. His early work was mainly in normal mode seismology and helioseismology. Research in the last decade has concentrated on developing methods to focus seismic models derived from surface wave dispersion information to tectonic scales, particularly in the US and China. Recent emphasis has focused on developing methods for exploiting ambient noise and earthquakes in surface wave tomography and combining this information to...

Professor • Associate Chair - Engineering Physics • EPEN Faculty Advisor (Student's Last Name: Q-Z)
Physics
Office Hours: Visit Buff Portal Advising for office hours • Office: JILA X435 • Research Interests: My group studies collisions and reactions of simple cold molecules. Our ultimate goal is to understand the quantum mechanical processes involved in making and breaking a chemical bond. We aim to control the reacting molecules external and internal degrees of freedom in the quantum regime. To accomplish this control, we slow down a supersonically...
