Department Chair • Professor
Physics
Research Interests: Experimental Particle Physics, Charm Physics, Beyond the Standard Model Physics, LHC, particle detector technology and instrumentation I have broad interests in particle physics. I am presently involved in the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider studying the possibility of observing Zprime decays to tau tau. In addition I am involved in generic research involving the use of diamonds as a particle sensor in future experiments in the...

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...

Physics
Office Hours: Monday 3:00pm-5:00pm • Office: DUAN F525 • Research Interests: We strive to advance science and technology in the fields of optics and photonics through advanced functional materials, novel laser systems and measurement techniques. Light has played an important role during the development of many topics in modern physics. Atomic, molecular, optical (AMO) physics certainly relies strongly on steady developments in optics and photonics. Also a variety of experiments...
